OVERVIEW

Original Description
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP TORNADO DETECTION AND TRACKING CAPABILITY USING RADIATED INFRASONIC SIGNALS. A PROTOTYPE OPERATIONAL NETWORK OF INFRASOUND DETECTION ARRAYS WILL BE DESIGNED AND DEPLOYED TO MONITOR TORNADO ACTIVITY IN A REGION THAT IS HISTORICALLY ACTIVE WITH SEVERE WEATHER, SPECIFICALLY TORNADOES. THE ARRAY GEOMETRY AND NETWORK CONFIGURATION WILL BE OPTIMIZED BASED ON STATISTICAL INFRASOUND PROPAGATION TOOLS DEVELOPED FOR DEFENSE APPLICATIONS. THOUGH IT IS EXPECTED THAT FOUR NINE-ELEMENT ARRAYS WILL SUFFICE; THE FINAL NETWORK DEPLOYED WILL BE BASED ON THE RESULTS OF THE OPTIMIZATION. TRACKING SOFTWARE WILL BE DEVELOPED BASED ON REAL-TIME PROCESSING ALGORITHMS USED AND TESTED IN DEFENSE APPLICATIONS FOR THE TRACKING OF MULTIPLE MOVING TARGETS. ADDITIONALLY, THE STUDY OF THE PHYSICAL MECHANISM THROUGH WHICH TORNADOES RADIATE INFRASOUND WILL CONTINUE, BOTH THEORETICALLY AND THROUGH THE DEPLOYMENT OF A SPECIALLY DESIGNED ARRAY CONSISTING OF UP TO 40 INFRASOUND S
