Back Low Visibility Detector Networking
|Division||Graduate School of Operational & Information Sciences|
|Investigator(s)||Bordetsky, Alexander B.|
|Sponsor||Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DoD)|
The main objective for this project is to explore new operationally viable solutions for integrating nuclear radiological detection with low visibility self-forming mesh networking capabilities. It is expected that NPS graduate students experienced in Maritime Interdiction Operations and ISR missions will be conducting this study through field experimentation and under the guidance from Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) faculty and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The proposed research should address technology integration and operational challenges of ubiquitous low visibility networking with detectors, integration with mobile self-forming mesh networks, communications in denied areas, and encryption for low visibility communications, The research should also address challenges of maintaining persistent ISR to Maritime Domain Awareness by means of micro satellites and other ad hoc transient networks.
The goal is to established multiple year sustainable student research, with first year of study focused on Ultra WideBand (UWB) networking with detectors, second year on integration with unmanned systems, and third year focused on transient networking solutions in both, Maritime and Urban domains. It is envisioned by the sponsor as a three year long project with 120K per year.
