Abstract:

Distributed Acoustic Arrays Infrastructure Architecture and Performance. Concept A large number of sensor nodes cooperate. Each node has an acoustic and possibly other sensors. Each node has signal processing capability. Each node is small, lightweight and inexpensive. The nodes interact by wireless communications. The nodes are easily deployed and self-organizing. The nodes cooperate to provide low-power operation hence longevity to detect, localize and identify targets.
