Research Institution
The Naval Autonomous Surface Threat Identification system will leverage Augmented Reality technology, advanced sensors and automated threat detection to enable superior surface threat detection aboard the Littoral Combatant Ship. Camera systems will be enhanced with magnification and non-visual optical sensors operating in the low light and infrared spectrums. Visual images of targets will be automatically or on-demand examined by intelligent agents to obtain and analyze threat related clues from the images. Image mapping and correlation to threat data bases will be created, and imported radar tracks will be monitored for clues to hostile intent (course and speed changes, etc.). Monitored track information will be collected and analyzed by a decision support algorithm and operator alerts will be triggered when a possible threat behavior is detected.
