Abstract:

A simulation tool has been developed for the purpose of performing trade studies between data fusiontracking algorithms and sensor node configurations for distributed sensor system applications. The simulation tool allows the user to control the number and configuration of nodes within a given sensor field in order to analyze system performance as a function of sensor node placement. Simulation results indicate that the proper placement of sensor nodes within a given field is capable of providing significant improvements in system performance. It is anticipated that the simulation tool developed for this work will be used to assist in the sensor node placement for future field tests, exercises and operational scenarios.
