Abstract:

Distributed sensor networks DSN within the DoD are motivated by a need for pervasive and persistent military surveillance, as addressed in Navy DoD guidance documents. Previous studies have sought to characterize DSNs based on various attributes, taxonomies, and design spaces from more of a theoretical perspective. This paper differs from previous studies by focusing on the establishment and use of measurable, orthogonal, design-level, discriminating attributes discriminators for classifying DSNs. DoD and non-DoD applications are then characterized in light of these discriminators. Senior NavyDoD leadership and other decision makers interested in understanding the characterization of DSNs within the DoD, will find this paper valuable.
