Abstract:

This effort considers the integration of an ultrasound sensor with an active radar sensor. The purpose of the active-radar sensor is to provide long-range detection of concealed weapons. The radar will then hand over the detection data to the ultrasound sensor which will produce an image of the suspected weapon. The fusion of radar and ultrasound produces a long rangehigh probability of detectionlow false alarm rate system. The system was tested on both metallic and non-metallic weapons concealed under a variety of clothing. This testing showed that the system was effective but was highly dependent on clothing thickness and material and aspect angle.
