Abstract:

The MITRE Corporation recently hosted the first Netted Sensors Community Workshop in McLean, Virginia, on 24 October-26 October 2005. The Workshop was sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA, Office of the Secretary of Defense OSD Director of Defense Research and Engineering DDRE, and the National Science Foundation NSF. The goal was to establish and sustain an annual Netted Sensors workshop that brings together Government, Industry and Academia to accelerate the development and transition of appropriate Netted Sensor technologies to solve real world problems. The workshop provided a forum focused on the application of netted sensing research and development RD activities to solve existing and future Department of Defense DoD, Intelligence Community IC, Department of Homeland Security DHS, and Environmental sensing problems. The Netted Sensors workshop brought together the Science and Technology ST community, Industry, and Government Military organizations to 1 share, discuss and disseminate new RD results, 2 highlight new commercial products and technologies, and 3 identify and discuss nationally important sensing problems suitable for Netted Sensing solutions. This paper provides a summary of the presentations that were made as well as recommendations for future workshops.
