Passive Infrared would be utilizing the IR capability within a smart phone, creating an infrared “beam” that when broken by an object (human, vehicles, etc.) would trigger a tip for another smart phone. This tip would enable video, still photo, or audio capability for the specific mission. The IR could actually tip multiple capabilities resident in the other four phones, again, mission dependent. We will need this type of flexibility. Another example would be a seismic trigger in the same fashion. Bottom line the phones will need to be able to tip and queue to each other, to trigger collection capabilities within the other phones. The is no need to have infrared imaging. However, although not a part of the challenge, it would be icing on the cake, but not a requirement at this time. Again, it is about movement detection on the ground. I hope this answered your question, please don’t hesitate to follow up if necessary. Thanks.
