Unmanned Vehicle Security System
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) deployed beyond the direct observation of the host Littoral Combat Ship are susceptible to significant threats due to vandalism, piracy, and/or fouling from fishing gear. Advanced Acoustic Concepts (AAC) and Accurate Automation Corporation propose a multi-sensor fusion and dissuasion solution that is robust and cost effective for protection of USVs. This Unmanned Vehicle Security System (UVSS) will consist of a set of optimally selected surveillance sensor technologies assembled via a "peer review process" in which "best of breed" solutions are identified from a representative field of competitors. This represents a departure from the tradition approach of offering a "magic bullet" solution, and allows the system to integrate the best technologies available regardless of the origin. AAC has a successful history of applying the best of breed/peer review process to Navy surface fleet sonar systems, and provides expertise in underwater and air acoustic surveillance as well as signal processing and sensor integration. Accurate Automation has extensive expertise in USV development and USV threat dissuasion technologies, and will be developing both lethal and non-lethal dissuasion systems for the UVSS. Once the optimal set of surveillance sensors and dissuasion tools have been identified, a system design will be produced.
