Abstract
Station keeping platforms represent significant new capability for the Navy and for various PMs in PEO LMW specifically. In order to make best use of these platforms for surveillance applications, Polaris Sensor Technologies is proposing to integrate proven imaging polarimeter technology that is superior for detecting low observable objects on to a Liquid Robotics Wave Glider. Polaris will take the proven sensor technology, adapt existing image processing algorithms for detection and cueing, and integrate them onto the Wave Glider platform, a platform that already contains the existing infrastructure of mechanical, electrical, control, and data telemetry.
