Abstract
To be effective an Unattended Ground Sensor System must support a mix of sensors that can offer a broadband detection capability and which can be tailored case by case on the operational and environmental requirements. Such systems will often be required to support Seismic, Acoustic, Magnetic, Passive Infra-Red (PIR), Visual Band and Infrared sensors and must be able to seamlessly transfer information to an observer to provide alerts with a low false alarm rate and, in the case of images, positive identification or intent analysis. SELEX GALILEO have developed a common processing core for its HYDRA System which delivers the key capabilities of sensor management, image compression, tracking and classification algorithms, ad-hoc wireless communication and geo-location.
