The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has wrapped up the reference design and application software for an unattended sensor as part of DARPA's program intended to develop intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance sensors for the military.

The adaptable sensor system program is intended to engineer sensors using an original design manufacturer process that could develop sensors in less than a year compared to the 3-8 years it currently takes, DARPA said Monday.

DARPA has built an unattended ground sensor that uses the program's hardware and software package running on the Android operating system.

“We're excited to have the first reference design for a small, adaptable ground sensor and look forward to testing a significant number of these new sensors in field scenarios starting this summer,“ said Mark Rich, DARPA program manager.

The UGS helps the military detect remote ground activities and connects with other sensors and video monitors from operation centers, according to DARPA.

The agency plans to develop reference designs to unify the program with airborne, sea and underwater applications.
