Title: Real-time predictive sensor network and deployable sensor

Abstract

Deployable, predictive sensor systems may form a sensor network configured to provide environmental data in real-time or near-real-time. The sensors may be deployable sensors that can be launched and/or airdropped in areas that may be contaminated or otherwise unsafe for humans to enter. The predictive sensor network may include sensor tetrapods that may include anemometers for measuring wind speed, radiation sensors, gaseous contaminant sensors, biological sensors, and/or any other desired sensor type. These sensors may inform wind, transport and dispersion models in real-time. The sensor tetrapods may be satellite-linked, linked via a cellular network, linked via RF line-of-sight, a wireless communication link, and/or another compatible wireless network to a wind, dispersal, and deposition model that provides a dispersion pattern, a deposition pattern, and a wind pattern to enable a high-quality remote assessment of the changing scene in real-time.
