Abstract
There has been a tremendous development in the sensor networking arena in recent years, and networks of sensors can be deployed to track enemy location and movement. Small and cheap sensors can monitor sound levels, metal objects passing nearby, body heat through infrared emissions, and a variety of chemicals. Their information can be received by base stations or "collector" sensors with stronger antennas and more significant power, aggregated and processed and then forwarded to the control center for inclusion in the situational awareness display.
