Digital Seismic Acoustic Unattended Ground Sensor
Quantum Technology Sciences has developed a new digital seismic-acoustic unattended ground sensor to support several security and surveillance products. The sensor technology is solid state, with no moving parts or required special handling. The cylindrical sensor, 2 x 2 inches, weighs only 3.5 ounces. The system has a very wide dynamic range and is omnidirectional, detecting and classifying human footsteps more than 150 feet away. It also detects and classifies land, water, and air vehicles, digging, machinery, and tunneling. Other features include integrability with other systems, wireline or RF communications, and power management to support remote long life applications.
