A Study on Threats Detection and Tracking Systems for Military Applications using WSNs

In Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) applications it is critical to accurately determine the location of the distributed sensor nodes in order to report the data that is geographically meaningful. Since localization and tracking algorithms have been attracting research and development attention recently, a wide range of existing approaches regarding this topic have emerged. Tracking and localization algorithms have been proposed for different WSN applications including civilian, industrial and safety applications. A few research studies focused on tracking Threats through military applications, such as detecting and tracking Threats through border security area. Therefore this paper studies and investigates the existing WSN based tracking and localization algorithms and summarizes the potential requirements for localizing and tracking Threats through military applications.
