Unattended Ground Sensors have found widespread usefulness in force and asset protection, border patrol and, drug
enforcement. In recent years their application has extended into ground and air surveillance providing additional data
from disparate networked Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance resources. The consolidation of this data and
effective presentation through software applications efficiently communicates critical information that helps the analyst
support persistent surveillance missions. This paper presents the interface such flexible applications with an emphasis on
their presentation elements and information content.
Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS) have recently gained momentum in surveillance and protection applications. Many
of these Unattended Ground Sensors are deployed in current operations today across the Department of Defense (DoD)
and Department of Homeland Security (DHS). In addition to UGS needs, there is a growing desire to leverage existing
UGS for incorporation into higher level systems for a broadening role in defense and homeland security applications.
The architecture to achieve this goal and examples of non-traditional scenarios that leverage higher level systems are
discussed in this paper.
