Abstract: The US Army Research Laboratory's (ARL) Networked Sensing and Fusion Branch continually strives to develop next generation unattended ground sensors (UGSs) and other sensing platforms. In support of these goals, it is a requirement to have access to seismic, acoustic, magnetic, and other sensor signatures of vehicle and people. These signature databases allow researchers to develop cutting-edge detection algorithms that detect and classify 1 or more vehicles or persons. These algorithms will be geared toward current and new UGS applications. For this effort, a team was deployed to Spesutie Island at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, to collect signatures of personnel and vehicles from July 27–30, 2015.
