Agenda

UNLASSIFIED

Agenda

  • Applications

  • Key geophysical sensing needs

  • Key geophysical analytic needs

  • Challenges

  • Lessons learned

UNCLASSIFIED


Applications

UNLASSIFIED

Applications

  • Treaty monitoring

  • Battlespace awareness

    • Land (and below), sea, air

    • Detect, locate, characterize

  • Clandestine tunnel detection

    • Broad, low resolution detection

    • Moderate resolution location

    • High fidelity local interrogation

UNCLASSIFIED


Key geophysical sensing needs

UNLASSIFIED

Key Geophysical Sensing Needs

  • Sensing in a non-lab environment

    • DoD does not typically build vaults

  • Sensor networks

    • Common communications

    • Pre-processing on node prior to exfil

  • Size and power matter

    • Trade-offs (minimize reduction in sensitivity or bandwidth)

  • More robust and resilient sensors

    • No reduction in sensitivity

    • Example: sensitivity locked until sensor is in place

  • Stability

    • Sensors that do not require frequent or lengthy calibrations

  • No soaker hoses

    • Noise cancellation versus isolation

    • Advanced sensor concepts for noise reduction

  • Common GPS time for all

UNCLASSIFIED


Key geophysical analysis needs

UNLASSIFIED

Key Geophysical Analysis Needs

  • Depth of seismic sources

    • Without placing sensor over the top of the source

  • Integrated infrasound and meteorological data

  • Rapid computation, interpretation of local & regional synthetics

    • Helps most with moving networks

  • Workflow optimized analytical environment

  • More tsunamigenic source function and propagation work

  • Cross-domain data fusion (no single geophysical method is applicable everywhere)

    • Seismic (active and passive)

    • Acoustic, Infrasound

    • Electromagnetic Induction

    • Resistivity

    • Ground penetrating radar

  • Global database of future sensor deployments

  • Direct download of .css data files

    • Versus seed format download and unpack
