The proposed SBIR will develop a network of imaging sensors that are extremely small (<12 cu in), lightweight (<8oz), inexpensive ($350) and very low power. The imaging sensors will communicate via a true mobile ad hoc mesh network (MANET) to a small long haul (>50 mi) communications node that will relay data into a TCP/IP network to a serve based graphical user interface. The imaging sensor nodes will perform internal image processing to extract target features. A schema of target features will be developed that is compatible with MANET operation. The sensor nodes will also perform distributed processing of the target features to enhance target identification and provide tracking. System level issues such as covertness, battery life and energy harvesting and environmental hardening will also be addressed. McQ has defined an approach for a Phase I program that will advance the technical concepts that are rooted in our prior research and project areas. McQ has over 15 years of experience with the research, design and development of high performance UGS systems that include imaging systems for border applications. During Phase I we will use our existing resources as a basis for experimentation to support the development of a preliminary design of a disposable imaging sensor node that is tailored for border monitoring applications.

Continuity Solutions (CS), LLC. proposes to apply our experience and capability in developing scenario scripting tools for training to ensure the Department of Homeland Security is prepared to decisively perform in demanding situations. CS proposes a holistic, easy-to-use approach to comprehend and evaluate emergency preparedness requirements and associated responses. Our approach extends the traditional table-top paradigm by allowing rapid integration of capabilities beyond organic facilities, personnel, and supply chains. CS proposes to develop a system that will: Apply an intuitive user interface to rapidly develop scripted scenarios to train emergency responders; Link diverse functions, infrastructures and entities internal and external to the DHS chain of responsibility; Create a state-of-the-art Web Services Oriented Architecture allowing web based collaboration and participation; Coherently inter-link data across diverse issues, infrastructure and functions; Leverage state of the art advances in architectural modeling and simulation.
