Today's warfighter requires an in-depth view of the battle space in order to best plan for future operations, assess the current operating environment, and prevent or respond to attacks. The deployment and use of wireless sensor devices could serve as a force multiplier by enhancing a commander's security posture, providing a view of the current environment, and gathering intelligence for analysis. The use of low-power imaging devices, coupled with the flexibility provided by a wireless sensor network, could provide such enhancements. The objective of this research was to explore the feasibility of remote management and control of a lowpower/ low-cost wireless sensor network by implementing a point-to-point wireless network utilizing IEEE 802.15.4 equipped devices to control, capture, and transfer image data from a remote sensor node to the controlling host. This platform was used to test the viability of the system at various ranges and operating environments. The results demonstrated that the IEEE 802.15.4 compliant devices used in this research are able to operate over long distances (1000 meters), in harsh RF environments, with a high degree of reliability.
