Paper Abstract

This paper describes preliminary results of the interdisciplinary research and development venture lead by The Military University of Technology, Warsaw, Poland. The main task of the project is to develop remote solutions that support dogs guide during different special activities. According to the law-enforcement operational procedures, system has been designed basing on three different modules: special dogs electronic vest, mobile command center and supporting UAV (Unnamed Airborne Vehicle) platform. Project integrates such technologies as GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System), IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), remote sensing tools and UAV platforms as a support device. General idea of the project comes from boarder control and law-enforcement forces whose big scope of work is related with K-9 dogs activity. The main functionality of the system is to monitor and control the K-9 dog during high level risk operations. The biggest challenge of the project is to develop official training and operational procedures suitable to the applied technology.

This article presents general concept of the system and the results of validation process in scope of remote sensing (NIR , RGB) and navigation functionalities (GNSS). The set of tests has been taken with different methods and tools to establish efficient ergonomic solution. Possibilities of project application areas are also shown here in details.
