Abstract: A recent U.S. Government Accountability Office report noted that that less than 1 percent of the 4,000-mile long border between the United States and Canada is under the operational control of U.S. Border Patrol. The large scale, and environmental conditions of the Northern Border pose specific technical challenges to securing the border. In this proposal, we detail a novel mesh networked RF sensor -based on IAI's current ARGUS system (developed by IAI and manufactured under license by HARRIS Corp. for expeditionary base perimeter security that can address a specific area of concern: the detection, localization and tracking of people in wooded terrain along the border. The proposed RF sensor system faces specific challenges related to the environment. To address these challenges, IAI proposes to adapt its proven RF perimeter monitoring system -ARGUS- to the DHS border application.
