We propose to study development of a wireless network of seismic/acoustic/GPS sensors to carry out the ordnance-impact characterization. We propose to modify an existing design that includes a three-componenent seismograph (sampled at 10kHz), a microphone, and a high-precision GPS receiver. These data are optimally subsampled and wirelessly transmitted over an 802.15 ("zigbee"-like) Personal Area Network. The source location algorithms will be designed along with subcontractors at the Pennsylvania State University with expertise in seismic source location and characterization.
