An unattended seismic sensor based on optical fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensing technology is presented in this paper. One of the applications is its deployment in the battlefield remote monitoring system to detect the presence of personnel, wheeled vehicles, and tracked vehicles. The customized FBG sensor prototype is demonstrated which consists of two FBG sensor/demodulation grating pair attached on a spring-mass mechanical system. The sensor performance is evaluated in laboratory and the field tests were carried out in the shooting range using the conventional military Rembass-IIS/A sensor (remotely monitored battlefield sensor system II seismic acoustic sensor) as the benchmark. Personnel and a series of vehicles were used as targets. The experimental data of the field test show that the FBG sensor averaged a 30.20 % greater detection range than the Rembass-IIS/A sensor. It is hoped that the FBG sensor system will be a promising tool for real time monitoring system in the battlefield applications.
