Abstract
Around-the-clock vigilance of valuable military assets, even in an ostensibly secure setting, requires substantial human effort and even the slightest error can result in disastrous consequences. MaXentric is proposing ISWAS, an Integrated Shipboard Wireless Autonomous Surveillance system, to reduce the probability of error and allow trained personnel to perform other critical tasks. ISWAS is a comprehensive solution, covering, sensor interface, wireless transport network, and data interface. ISWAS utilizes open standard architectures such as OSGi and allows multiple operators to utilize the same sensor network for different tasks. ISWAS combines Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) wireless networking components with a hardware adapter that uses innovative yet proven technology in order to create a jam-free, secure, and robust wireless sensor network. The control modules for COTS sensors are rapidly deployable plug-and-play modules that support multiple sensor types, and the Fuzzy Logic user interface allows the operator to set criteria for intelligent autonomous surveillance.
