Abstract
The goal of the Self-healing Autonomous Sensor Network (SASNet) Technology Demonstration project is to show that an ad-hoc wireless network of heterogenous, unattended ground sensors (UGS) can be rapidly deployed to perform remote surveillance for the Canadian Army. In October 2008, the first of three annual SASNet trials was conducted at the Shirley’s Bay campus of the Communications Research Centre in Ottawa. This memorandum reports on the metrics that were developed for this trial and the results of a user survey. The SASNet technology was demonstrated with the participation of potential future users from the Canadian Forces and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Feedback was obtained from the participants by conducting a structured survey at the end of each demonstration session. The results provided many recommendations for improving the design and usability of SASNet.
