Abstract:

Distributed Sensor Network research in the areas of tracking, signal processing, and system software is reported as is progress with the design and development of a DSN test bed. Two-node acoustic location algorithms have been reformulated to better fit into the real-time DSN environment. Deghosting techniques have been investigated and the general organization of tracking tasks further refined. The development of hardware and software for a small acoustic array and data acquisition system which will evolve into a node of a DSN test bed has been completed and the data acquisition system is operational. System software designs and ideas for initial three-node test bed use and for more general DSN systems are presented. Author
