Research Institution

The objective of this SBIR topic is to develop innovative technologies to search anti-submarine warfare (ASW) test ranges for the presence of whales. This proposal offers such methods in the form of a process that is being refined by Brainlike Surveillance, Inc. This research will prove the feasibility of a special-purpose system, based on the Brainlike process, for improving the effectiveness of whale search radar (WSR). Brainlike will develop a prototype for a special-purpose system, based on the Brainlike process, and evaluate its clutter removal potential. The system will be developed by analyzing radar data containing heavy-tailed noise, extracting features within the Brainlike process framework, and evaluating the potential for Brainlike added value in terms of clutter and processing time reduction. As part of the proposed effort, the prototype will be delivered to the Navy in the form of a demonstration, simulation, and research tool. Doing so will allow the Navy to research and evaluate its potential for a variety of other remote sensing applications.
