7 May 2010 UGS-technology-driven application expansion
Author Affiliations +
UGS usage has transitioned from military applications in Vietnam directed at detecting enemy movements to much more sophisticated applications for classifying activity, tracking targets, identifying targets, and providing real time target response. The era of individual sensors has now moved into an era of collaborative sensors. The technologies behind this collaborative capability include networking many sensors together, performing complex processing of target features, integrating multiple sensing phenomenologies, fusing information from many sources, and presenting the user with advanced information visualization for events of interests. The influx of advanced technology will lead to a new era of ubiquitous UGS applications.
