Abstract
Achieving and maintaining effective control of our nation`s maritime borders which comprise 95,000 miles of shoreline and navigable waters, and 361 ports is an ongoing challenge. Due to greater numbers, increased maneuverability and reduced observables, smaller vessels pose unique and special risks. A complete accounting of all these small vessels that could be anywhere in the nearly 3.5 million square miles of U.S. territorial waters is a daunting task. To address this problem, Nokomis will build upon its Measurement and Signature Intelligence (MASINT) technology to meet DHS Non-cooperative Vessel Imaging and Tracking (NVIT) system needs. Nokomis MASINT systems are passive, stand-alone receivers that make use of ultra sensitive Software Reconfigurable Receiver (SRR) technology along with advanced real time signal processing to detect measure and exploit unintended electronic system RF emissions and identify, geo-locate, and track conveyances containing targeted electronic devices. A Nokomis` MASINT system is an NVIT capability as there is no cooperative link or special equipment of any kind on the monitored vessels. Nokomis MASINT systems are the result of ten million dollars of highly successful Department of Defense (DOD) funded research and development over a period of 10 years culminating in successful applications on land and air vehicles.
