Executive Summary

The purpose of this paper is to describe a successful undergraduate research project and lessons learned. The project scope is to design, implement and test a proof of concept for personnel and mission-critical asset tracking at the Texas A&M Disaster City site utilizing RFID system. On a larger scale solution, this system can be used for underground mine safety and communications, subterranean building safety and communications, indoor/Outdoor Personnel tracking, indoor/Outdoor Moveable asset tracking, environmental test and measurement, and continuous data logging, trending and homeland security concerns. The approach is to start with a proof-of-concept scalable system architecture that could be used for a full-scale system.
