AbstractArete Associates proposes to develop novel techniques to exploit radar-identifiable small boat wake signatures associated with unsteady motion and turbulent signatures in addition to enhancing existing methods to exploit steady-state wake characteristics. Using advanced nonlinear hydrodynamic techniques, Arete will develop innovative advanced modeling of steady, unsteady and turbulent wake signatures. Arete will then integrate the physical modeling results with its state-of-the-art radar simulation code to produce radar predictions that will help determine what signatures are identifiable in radar. Based on these results,Arete will develop exploitation algorithms to identify signatures and methods to retrieve important and relevant information about small surface vessels. Additionally, Arete will explore and scope out radar waveforms that would be optimal for each identified wake signature.
