Abstract:

Seismic, acoustic, and magnetic SAM sensors are passive devices that play an important role in identifying vehicular features of military interest. This was the case during a recent joint USGERMAN test at the Meppen Test Facility, Meppen, Germany. The test consisted of detonating a HARM missile warhead in close proximity to a SA-6 and other support vehicles. SAM sensors were deployed in the far field to simulate a probe that had penetrated to a depth of one meter below the ground surface. The discussion begins by describing the SAM sensors and their deployment in the field. A dialogue of signatures and their point of origin follows. SAM signature data will show the health of an operating SA-6 and its subsequent degradation, as monitored by the buried sensors, after detonation of the HARM warhead. Conclusions will depict how the correlation of SAM data can lead to a robust signature product for remote smart probes.
