Abstract: In this talk we discuss ASTRO, a platform for autonomous data-driven mobile sensing missions via networked drones. ASTRO objective is to develop (i) high-resolution distributed mobile laser-spectroscopy gas sensing to identify, localize, and track health and environmental hazards in real-time and (ii) automated mobile radio-frequency spectrum analysis and usage via distributed diverse-spectrum virtual arrays. To demonstrate our system we will discuss design principles with a mobile or hiding wireless transmitter “spectrum cheater”.
