Abstract:

Noncooperative vessel tracking to assess potential threats is becoming increasingly important to the defense of the U.S. coastline and ports of entry; so there is a need to identify and intercept potential threats well before they reach our shores. To support this critical surveillance activity a Phase I Program established a relatively low cost, long life, moored buoy based vessel detection / signal processing system concept, that could be readily deployed by Coast Guard or Navy vessels in forward areas as a barrier and have an acoustic detection range of 20NM. The system would provide a communication link to a shore station for sorting and tracking the detected vessels of interest. The Phase II program will fabricate and deploy such a deep ocean, moored acoustic array prototype system to demonstrate operational performance. Contact and track reports will be relayed back to a shore station. LewTech Company plans to commercialize the resulting technology from this program by fully supporting the Coast Guard / Navy Maritime Domain Awareness mission requirements. This technology will also be readily expanded or used directly in supporting various tactical operations and surveillance systems for such organizations as the Navy, DEA, BATFE, NOAA and the Special Forces.
