Abstract
Maritime Security is derived from robust Situational Awareness and enabled through a man machine interface which promotes rapid human cognition. The ability to sense threats even in seemingly benign environments is key. Sensing threats early affords Fleet Operators critical timely reaction to set material conditions, station personnel, initiate a challenge and prepare responses. An approach has been developed by Technology Systems Inc (TSI) and Advanced Optical Systems (AOS) which offers a novel adaptation and combination of several existing technologies to drive a significant advancement in threat awareness. In the approach developed Augmented Reality is used to georegister sensor inputs and data base information over real time video to produce a multi sensor fused Common Operational Picture. Those same senor inputs are evaluated for threat determining clues. The system will autonomously alert an operator when a potential threat is uncovered. Operators can instantly shift attention to the contact and prepare the ship to respond.
