Abstract
Acoustech Corporation, Applied Physical Sciences Corporation, and Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation have teamed to develop a low cost surveillance system that will protect assets located along the shoreline from domestic and foreign terrorists. The surveillance system consists of a multistatic sonar system and a passive optical/thermal imaging system. The Phase II project is centered on advanced development of the systems and components that were developed during Phase I. Key areas of R&DTE include development of acoustic transducers, data acquisition modules, and telemetry; development of signal processing algorithms to detect, classify, and localize targets; and performing tasks related to systems integration. A full scale experiment is planned to evaluate the performance of the surveillance system in which divers and swimmers will be used as targets in a predetermined security zone spanning 1,000 ft of shoreline in a realistic saltwater environment. A comprehensive commercialization plan will be developed and implemented concurrent with the technical agenda of the Phase II effort.
