The problem of accurate, reliable location in GPS denied areas is acute especially in the context of tunnel interdiction efforts at the US borders. Conventional technologies such as LORAN or inertial guidance methods are ill suited to the problems encountered in an underground environment. QTrack has developed a suite of geolocation solutions that are capable of providing better than 1m tracking metrics at 95 percent confidence. Furthermore, we have demonstrated that our Near Field Electromagnetic Ranging (NFER) based system is well suited to the problems of underground signal propagation (a demonstration of underground MOUT tracking can be viewed at our corporate website). This proposal is in support of developing an underground mapping and tracking solution for deployment by DHS for the purposes of tunnel interdiction. We anticipates developing a prototype Geospatial Underground Tracking Solution (GUTS) system by the end of Phase I and delivering a demonstration video to DHS.
