  2. Detection Identification and Geo-Location of UUVs with Hiawatha

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: N152113

    The utilization, and thereby, threat of unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) is experiencing a significant increase throughout the world. UUVs can be used to track vessels, covertly map ports, and attack targets. UUVs are inherently quiet targets making them difficult to track via traditional acoustic methods. To counter the threat presented by covert UUV activities, other detection and tracking me ...

  3. Synthetic Aperture Radar Approaches for Small Maritime Target Detection and Discrimination

    SBC: LAMBDA SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N152083

    Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) has the ability to detect and discriminate slow moving (= 10 knots) low radar cross section (RCS) objects such as small surface vessels and surface signatures in maritime environments at low-to-mid grazing angles. The physical mechanisms for detection and discrimination are made possible by the combination of coherent and non-coherent scatting phenomenology associate ...

  7. High Voltage Antenna Protection for Hand-held and Man-pack Radios

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: N153126

    In order to be an effective EM radiator, monopole antennas must be ideallywavelength. For HF frequencies, this can result in a significantly long radiator. This long radiator, when deployed, can accidentally contact a HV source such as an overhead power line. The results of such a contact can be devastating for the radio operator and potentially nearby soldiers. Because of this threat, a simple so ...

  8. Three Dimensional Ship Modeling for Submarine Combat Systems

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: N131024

    The rapid identification of ships from periscope and other imagery is a capability important to a variety of submarine missions, including sea control, anti-surface warfare, battle group support, covert operations landings, and ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) operations. When spotting a new vessel, the imagery taken from submarines can be useful to construct three-dimensional ...
