Abstract
Phase II would utilize a RDTS sensor and three PSRS sensors to verify the concept and capabilities of an `over the water' intruder detection system. The proposed project would utilize multiple high-resolution radar sensors, with overlapping coverage zones, to detect surface targets. Each radar sensor acts independently and reports its own set of intruders. A single Control Station would receive all the intruder data from each sensor and merge this information onto a single display. Actual field tests using a single radar without the benefit of data from multiple sensors have resulted in reliable detection of various size targets of opportunity. This proposed project would provide the additional algorithm development to combine the overlapping intruder data from multiple independent sensors into a single target image. The system would classify objects based on course, speed, and estimated size. The key to success of the overall program will be the development of the data fusion algorithms that combine the detection and tracking information from multiple sensors, and the reduction in false alarms caused by wave motion. The overall system will have the capability to detect, track and generate characteristics of targets ranging in size from a single person (snorkeling) to very large ships.
