27 May 2005 Phenomenological investigations into personnel signatures
Author Affiliations +
Georgia Tech has initiated a research program into the issues surrounding the detection of covert personnel present in a wide variety of scenarios. These initial investigations have been focused on a detailed phenomenological analysis of human physiology with the subsequent identification and characterization of potential observables-particularly in the context of urban environments during this phase. A parallel effort focused on the characterization of the resulting humanspecific signatures and their dependency and variation on local environmental conditions. In addition, these studies established the basic requirements for the development of physics-based human signature models; a significant component of these models is the inclusion of environmental and physiological variables into the computations. This paper will present a review of the research program and preliminary results from several of the initial signature phenomenology tasks.
