Multi-sensor data acquisition, tracking, fusion and intelligent decision aids in the NATO Maritime Situational Awareness Initiative: countering underwater intruders
The objective of the NATO Maritime
Through-the-sensor geoacoustic inversion along a towed horizontal line array: results from real data set in the Mediterranean sea
The assessment of active sonar performances in shallow water strongly depends on the environmental conditions. Of most importance, bottom properties are known to strongly affect the forward acoustic propagation and ...
The effectiveness of a system-of-systems for countering asymmetric maritime threats in ports and harbours
A small boat loaded with explosives has been used by terrorists to attack military and civilian maritime surface vessels at berth or at anchor. For example, suicide bombers attacked the USS Cole using a small boat while ...
Adaptive normalization of active sonar data
In active sonar detection the background interference is reduced through normalization prior to applying a detection threshold. From the two mainstream normalization algorithms, i.e. the sliding window and the split window, ...

Project 03F - 1: phase 1 completion report
(NATO. SACLANTCEN, 2002/12)
This report describes the results of Phase I of Project 03F-1. The overall aim of this project is to
Autonomous underwater vehicles for port protection
NATO's present capability to deal with a terrorist threat to our ports is slow, dangerous, and inefficient. Ports are a challenging area within which to conduct MCM operations due to several factors: shipping movements, ...
A Bayesian approach to predicting an unknown number of targets based on sensor performance
Estimating remaining targets after some attempt has been made to detect an overall, unknown number of targets is critical to determining the potential threat associated with these remaining targets. This paper presents a ...
Infrared detection of marine mammals
An infrared (IR) binocular, designed for in-the-field military applications, was tested using in situ marine mammals during the Mar Ligure Joint Experiment 2003 (MLJX03) that took place in August-September 2003 onboard the ...
Active detection enhancement in coastal areas
The processing chain used for active detection analysis in association with measures of performance that allow real time performance monitoring is presented. Real life examples demonstrating environmental volatility ...
