Abstract
Accurate Automation Corporation's main objective of the SENTINEL SYSTEM is to provide a 24/7 presence on the water without putting valuable human resources in harm's way. Capable of being controlled remotely or configured for autonomous operation, the SENTINEL SYSTEM is an attractive solution to a range of marine applications. The SENTINEL can interdict threats in the maritime and littoral environments. A secondary application is the patrol of inland waterways. The U.S. Navy cannot provide adequate security for all the waterways of Iraq. Similarly, the Coast Guard cannot provide adequate security for all the dams, bridges, and power plants on the inland and coastal waterways of the U.S. without support. A SENTINEL USV can cruise near the shore or on lakes and rivers, watching for suspicious activity. Cameras, radar, sonar, and microphones can act as the operator's surrogate eyes and ears. Ship, boat, and barge traffic can be monitored and inspected. Dams and bridges can be inspected and protected. Plant intakes and outflows can be monitored and cleared. Suspicious activity can be identified. A SENTINEL USV can be the incident first responder to support an initial assessment of the situation with imagery and with air and water sampling.
