Adelos Offers Ground-Breaking Sensor Intelligence
GEOINT Applications Showcase
During the late 1990s, the U.S. Navy conducted research and development on an advanced fiber-optic sensor system code-named "BLUE ROSE" (Battlescape Land Undersea Extensible Rayleigh Optical Scattering and Electronics). Under the inventive leadership of Dr. Robert M. Payton and a team at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC)-Newport, NAVSEA, BLUE ROSE represented a novel use of the electro-optical properties of Rayleigh's Backscatter for a continuous phased array by detecting, classifying and localizing signals from disturbances along a single strand of commercial-grade fiber-optic cable. Because the highly sensitive cable could be buried in the ground, virtually undetectable by standard countermeasures, BLUE ROSE was designed for covert intelligence and surveillance gathering across a range of national security missions.

DULLES, Va. - IceWEB, Inc.™ (OTCBB: IWEB), www.iceweb.com, today announced that they have completed the first delivery of systems to the GCS Research Adelos Program. The Adelos™ sensor system is an advanced covert intelligence and surveillance sensor system protecting high value critical infrastructure, monitoring sensitive perimeters, and securing vulnerable borders.
Stephen A. Gill, VP of Sales for IceWEB said of the milestone delivery, "IceWEB is pleased to announce that their line of INLINE Storage products have been chosen as the hardware of choice for the recent sizeable government award to GCS Research for the "Adelos" program. The program's mission requires hardware to be fully mobile and self sustained. The field deployable solution consisted of multiple high performance servers, high density database appliances, network switches and accessories bundled in rugged-hardened transport cases. The solution is optimized for very large data ingest, processing of that data and ultimately giving the results to field personnel to act upon it in a timely manner."
"We are extremely excited to have taken delivery of the IceWEB hardware configuration. This new capability will allow GCS to perform more effectively in the challenging data and field requirements associated with the Adelos Program," states Mr. Mike Beltz, Adelos Program Manager for GCS Research.
"IceWEB and GCS Research have been collaborating on the hardware requirements for over 12 months. The research performed on this project positions both companies to deliver field proven replications of this innovative configuration more quickly and affordably than any other solution available. We're honored to be a partner with GCS Research and to help in the hardware design and implementation of the Adelos project. We look forward to many more implementations in the next 12-18 months." Mr. Gill added.
