Abstract
Arete will define the algorithmic, sensor, and platform requirements needed to perform airborne radar-based detection, tracking, and characterization of marine mammals in ocean or littoral battle spaces during Naval anti-submarine warfare (ASW) training and testing activities. Achieving performance in higher, more stressing sea states will be emphasized. Radar-based surveillance technology from airborne platforms represents a new and powerful addition to the traditional marine mammal detection paradigm by enabling high-search-rate operations through long-range, automated day and night operations over 360-degree FOV coverage.
