Abstract : The report describes the first phase of a research program designed to develop an effective integrated sensor system for ground surveillance using several combinatins of radars, night vision devices and sensors. The results obtained in a realistic operational setting showed that: (1) All devices used were effective for surveillance and target acquisition; (2) Device performance effectiveness was also related to target type, terrain and ambient conditions; (3) The optimal mix was judged to be a 2 device mix--an AN/PPS-5 and one night observation device. At the Battalion level this mix performed best when used at 3 sites simultaneously. (Author)
