Anti-Terrorism - Detection, Indications, and Warnings
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Protecting the U.S. coastline with commercial and naval ports is important. Providing indications and warning to U.S. Navy ships in foreign harbors is an equally daunting task. Argon Engineering Associates proposes to develop a small, low-cost HF, VHF,and UHF sensor to search and monitor maritime bands, providing both Over-The-Horizon (OTH) and Line-of-Sight (LOS) warning capability. The system design allows Angle of Arrival (AOA) and Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) from system sensors used alone orin cooperation with mobile platforms such as the U.S. Navy's Ship's Signal Exploitation Equipment (SSEE) or aircraft and helicopter systems. One of the key innovations of the system is providing situational awareness in a tiered security level, allowingimmediate information for law-enforcement and maritime security actions while protecting Sensitive Compartmented Intelligence (SCI) used to predict the terrorist or criminal maritime operations. Once the Anti-Terrorism Technology Surveillance System(ATTSS) remote sensor is demonstrated, Argon believes that because of the universal TCP/IP interface, the sensor can be integrated with a variety of signal measurement systems such as HITS, CMASS, and other large Government application programs for signalintelligence reporting. This allows for increased Argon business exposure.
