Every designated commando in the police department undergoes training for the improvement of his quick reflexes for attacking the surprise enemy and shooting accuracy in a given short period, typically 4 seconds. Present day commando training system in India lacks efficiency in posing a surprise enemy, timing control, programmability and measure of success or failure. The authors are engaged into the development of a completely automated commando training system employing a wireless sensor network (WSN) technology along with RFID technology. The project implementation also has a number of requisite mechanical systems fitted with an enemy bust figure, placed in a remote and harsh environment but hidden. Each of these systems has microprocessor based WSN router and a tiny camera for its operation. The active RFID tags are placed but hidden, along the commandopsilas predetermined moving path for continuously monitoring commandopsilas movement by a computer system. The paper describes the microcontroller based router, various aspects of the network design, RFID employment details, synchronization and operation, data exchange and image transfer among the network nodes, software controlled coordinator and data frames used for operation and control.
