Pentagon bizarro-tech chiefs have issued a requirement for mysterious sensor systems which would be able to peer through concrete walls to produce a complete internal picture of a building. US Forces would use such kit for “overseas urban building interior awareness”.

The new plans are known as “Comprehensive Interior Reconnaissance”, and come – of course – from famed off-the-wall military tech bureau DARPA, where they believe it’s better to invent a head-mounted multispectral imaging device than curse the darkness. The Pentagon brainiacs note:

As overseas military and peace-keeping operations have expanded in urban environments, our adversaries have adopted asymmetric strategies such as hiding in and operating out of civilian buildings … it is imperative that we develop technologies to allow US Forces to confidently manoeuvre within urban interiors whether above or below ground …

Once specific buildings have been identified as deserving closer scrutiny, our forces [will] concentrate specific resources on these buildings to support tactical planning. Deployed sensors can spend more time providing detailed situational awareness of a single building, determining its floor plan, underground extent, and underground ingress and egress …

Additional sensors can be carried by blue forces as they enter the structure to verify or refine the interior situational awareness and improve our forces manoeuverability.

Specifically, the war-nerds think that operational systems would be deployed in vehicles and aircraft, or perhaps placed near a building of interest by US personnel. The latter static jobs should be no bigger than backpack sized, and “compatible with clandestine operations”.
