Abstract

In Phase I, Vadum will develop a signal processing module designed to fuse data from multiple heterogeneous, multi-tiered sensors, as well as a software prototype demonstrating the automation of the fusion process for presentation to a Brigade Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear (CBRN) analyst. The techniques developed will incorporate Chemical/Biological (CB) agent detection sensors, non-CB sensors, and simulations using advanced, validated propagation models to improve the speed and accuracy of estimating the source of a CB attack or release. This information will reduce the analysts cognitive burden enabling a quicker downwind hazard estimate.
