Abstract
Networks of unattended ground sensors are fast becoming a reality, but little attention has been paid to date to the problem of how to plan an effective deployment of these sensors. Since the performance of the networked sensors depends on weather, target type, communications, terrain, and on how the sensors cooperate, the problem of planning a deployment is a very complex one. We will show how these factors can be included in a deployment planning tool that allows the warfighter to plan a deployment of acoustic sensors in near-real time. This tool can also be used as a health-monitor for the network of sensors, allowing the warfighter to maintain the network of sensors at a level of effectiveness needed to meet the mission goals.
