Abstract:

This report summarizes Distributed Sensor Networks research conducted during the period 1 April through 30 September 1978. One specific model for function decomposition and distribution is presented. A top level design of a strawman DSN for detecting and tracking low flying aircraft is described. High resolution acoustic signal processing algorithms for the strawman are specified and sized. Additional features of a multisite target search algorithm are presented. A moderately detailed model for simulation of an acoustic node under various scenarios is developed. New model simulation and experimental data analysis software are described and demonstrated. Technical issues involved with and plans for a digital acoustic data acquisition system are presented.
