6 UNCLASSIFIED/FOUOEUGS-PSS-STC System Overview to ATEC6 Performance Requirements Requirement SensorDetects normal human walking traffic patterns and vehicles moving at 10 mph or greater 20m detection radii (Objective) and 15m (Threshold) when sensors are emplaced in pairs, 1m to 5m apart in representative operational environment of hard-packed soil. Transmission DistanceThe E-UGS sensors shall transmit and allow consistent reception at a range of at least 20km (Objective),10km (Threshold) from sensor to the PSS location without repeaters or relays to allow PSS operator to cue the to the EO/IR sensor to the location of the E-UGS detection location. CueingWhen an emplaced EUGS sensor detects a target, the PSS operator shall receive a cue indicating the location of the detecting EUGS and if that detection is a personnel or activity LatencyLatency. The E-UGS detection report, via the UTAMS SW, shall provide the operator a cue no more than five seconds (Objective) and 10 seconds (Threshold) after detection of activity. UTAMS SoftwareThe UTAMS software will serve as an interface between the EUGS Base Station receiver and the PSS Ground Station software. InterfaceThe EUGS base station provides an message via Ethernet interface containing the 24-bit ID of the sensor detecting activity along with the target classification in accordance with the EUGS Interface Control Document (ICD), 27 Sept, 2010 WeightThe E-UGS receiver, antenna and cables shall weigh no more than 5 pounds Status ReportsThe E-UGS shall send a status report identifying the sensor battery life, Mode selected and RF transmission strength 2min, 17min, 30min, 60min and every 12 hours after the sensor is turned on TamperThe E-UGS shall send a tamper alert message to the PSS operator immediately if a sensor is tampered Data DisseminationThe PSS system shall have the capability to disseminate data generated from the E-UGS cue, to include the image, to the emplacing units Tactical Operation Center (TOC) no more than 10 seconds (objective) and 15 seconds (threshold) after the EO/IR sensor is cued

(IAW current SOP for other cueing sensors)  If in the wider FOV no targets can be found then the operator begins a step stare or box search. (IAW current SOP for other cueing sensors).  When the target is located the operator zooms the camera in to gain positive ID of the activity. TOC KEY
