This document is the “Integration Plan” of the “Surveillance in an Urban environment using Mobile sensors” Project, corresponding to the Contract A-0380-RT-GC on Multi Sensor Anti Sniper System [AD. 2] of the “Defence R&T Joint Investment Programme on Force Protection” (A-0120-RT-GC) under the Call “Data Analysis, including Data Fusion from various Sources” (A-0444-RT-GC). SUM considers the development of new active and passive millimetre wave sensors and uses them in combination with optical and infrared cameras in order to acquire data under adverse atmospheric conditions during day and night time from the surrounding environment to detect threats. It follows a multi-sensor approach, where the data fusion engine infers threats by exploiting the synergies between the subsystems. The threats are reported to the operator via a Human Machine Interface. The purpose of this document is to develop a scheme for integrating the stand-alone subsystems (radar, radiometer, cameras and data fusion engine) into the final overall demonstrator. An Open Architecture scheme is taken to ensure a smooth integration and to keep the effort needed low. This strategy is aligned with the multi-sensor approach followed in SUM project as it allows for the potential incorporation of sensors based on other technologies in any possible follow-on project, and making it easier (and so, more economic) the transition from a demonstrator (TRL 4-5) to a final operative system (TRL 7). On the one hand, the integration plan considers the effort to mechanically combine and mount all subsystems on an intended military Unimog vehicle as a basis for the integration into the final SUM system. An open architecture system mount that allows the adaptive installation of all subsystems on the vehicle roof and providing all sensors a sufficient and similar view on the scenario in front of the vehicle is envisaged to be developed by DLR, with its comprehensive and long-term experience in system integration. Likewise, this Integration Plan includes the incorporation of the subsystems into a vehicle-based Communication and Information System (CIS) prototype in order to give a proof of feasibility for the incorporation of auxiliary information from external C2 systems and C4ISTAR sources (such as UAVs and satellites). This strategy will provide for an assessment of the integration of an operational system for threat detection into an overall vehicle-based C2 system. This CIS prototype has been developed by taking advantage of the expertise acquired from GMV participation in the Spanish Future Combat Soldier programme (COMFUT), more specifically of its vehicle-deployable configuration, and provides the Human Machine Interface for the demonstrator.
