On the network centric battlefield, threat detection and identification remain crucial capabilities to the warfighter. For tactically relevant applications, the endurance and performance tradeoff remain the limiting factors in determining how long sensing and analytic capabilities can remain operative while unattended. In this proposal, Intelligent Automatic Inc. (IAI in collaboration with University of Michigan, propose a novel sensing system called Cognitive Ultra-low Power Sensor System (CUPSS). CUPPS has the following features and innovations: 1) Ultra low power (
