Swampworks - Contact Detection and Analysis System (CDAS)
Develop software for fast, accurate detection and classification of contacts using current EO/IR sensors (ONR 360 and Hammerhead) under difficult conditions
- Littorals, harbor, riverine (increased clutter)
- High sea state (up to SS3)
- Rain, fog, clear
- High speeds
- Day and night
Description of Technology
USVs need automated methods for detection, tracking, and classification of surface contacts to support 360-degree awareness of other maritime traffic as specified under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS) automated target recognition (ATR) capabilities for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and other mission scenarios.
