Author Affiliations +
Seismic detection systems for homeland defense and security applications are an important additional layer to perimeter, border and zone protection. General Sensing Systems has been developing a novel method and corresponding software for footstep detection with a near zero false alarm rate. This method has been realized in a number of detection systems. The testing of the GSS seismic systems in various environment noise conditions showed that such systems can be successfully used for other target detection. Such "unconventional" targets can include light and heavy vehicles, trains, helicopters and ships. This paper describes the signal characteristics of such targets and the preliminary experimental data on the corresponding detection range. We also report on the seismic sensor and seismic system requirements for target detection.
