Phase I Amount
To support system level analysis and optimization for micro-sensor networks, this project will identify commercial components suitable for battlefield sensors and produce a Battlefield Sensor Network Simulation. First principal models of micro-sensors, communication algorithms, and representative threat scenarios will be developed using advanced dynamic simulation tools. Models of physical systems (i.e. threats) and micro-sensors are generated using MATRIXx simulation tools. Algorithms representing AD-Hoc network algorithms will utilize either TinyOS or an iControl protocol simulator developed for network simulations. The integrated environment will allow parametric studies of sensor distribution density, sensor communication range, threat sensor sensitivity and message passing protocol performance. Three representative sensors will be simulated for Phase I. A US Marines Tactical Remote Sensor System (TRSS) UGS, an iControl micro-sensor, and a hypothetical mid-range micro-sensor.
