Abstract : The Surrogate Remote Sentry (SRS) system is an Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD) for the Rapid Force Projection Initiative (RFPl). The device consists of a remotely controlled surveillance system used to monitor approaching enemy vehicles on the battlefield for perimeter defense applications. The surveillance system is made up of a compact integrated multisensor system capable of being implanted behind enemy lines to provide day or night unmanned surveillance and targeting information. The Acoustic Detection System (ADS), designed at the Army Research Laboratory (ARL), has been integrated with the SRS. The ADS is a wide-field-of-view (WFOV) sensor system that uses an array of microphones and a simple processor to detect, track, and classify targets in the battlefield. When a target is detected, the ADS generates lines of bearing (LOBs) to the target relative to the position of the microphone array. When the ADS is integrated with the SRS, the LOBs can cue the narrow-field-of- view (NFOV) SRS sensors toward approaching targets as they come within the detection range of the acoustic sensor. The ADS integrated with the SRS has been successfully demonstrated at the Early Version Demo (EVD) in September 1994.
