Title: Forward Bathymetry and Obstacle Avoidance Sensing for Safe High Speed Boat Operation Using 3D Forward Looking Sonar
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N00014-10-M-0166
Award Amount: $70,000.00
 

Abstract:

In order to improve the safety and efficiency of navy high speed small boat operations, FarSounder proposes a 3-dimensional, forward looking sonar solution capable of simultaneous bathymetry sensing and obstacle detection out to ranges of at least 1640 ft (500m). Additionally, the system will be cable of 50 knot operation and suitable for installation on a high speed planing vessel such as common 11-meter RHIBs: the SOCHRIB, NSW RHIB, and certain classes of Unmanned Marine Vessels (UMVs). Additionally, the system will be designed to include a simple to use and understand human interface as well as a machine interface suitable for integrating the sonar''s data output into 3rd party command and control systems.
