Slide #1 Port & Maritime Security Summit 30 November 2011
Slide #2 Most Important Factors in Designing System ●What is the expected threat? ●How do you intend to respond to an intrusion? ●How long will it take you to do so? ●These factors determine the size of the area that must be surveilled
Slide #3 Mine Threat ●Mines are the most cost effective method of conducting naval warfare. Low cost to produce Low risk to install Expensive and time consuming to remove. ●A more serious threat than generally realized On the sea-floor near choke points Delivered by mini-subs or Swimmer Delivery Vehicles Affixed to the hull of innocent vessels 3
Slide #5 Enormous Economic Impact ●Sinking a vessel in a choke point is not that hard to do Limpet Mines on the Vessel Solution is Hull Scanning Proximity Mines on the Sea Floor Solution is Q Routing 5 It’s been estimated that an attack that shuts down the Port of Long Beach or LA would cost the US economy >$1,500,000,000/day
Slide #6 High Resolution 3-D Sonar for Next Generation 12 ¾” UUVs SeaBat 7130.
Slide #7 Features ●Dual Frequency Operation 200 kHz for 3-D Obstacle Detection and Avoidance and Concurrent Mapping and Localization 635 kHz for High Resolution Classification ●120 Degree Swath ●3,000 Meter Operating Depth ●LFM Sweep Eliminates Crosstalk From Other Payloads, Simplifies Integration ●Consumes Less Than 100 Watts
Slide #8 First Sea Test, 13 Jan 2011 Classification Mode-635 kHz Note detection of 1 1/2” Diameter Cable at 50 m near the end
