Abstract:

The United States Coast Guard`s homeland security mission includes providing security for 361 ports and 95,000 miles of US Coastline. This coastline is susceptible to both criminal and terrorist attack. Waterside facilities and critical infrastructure are especially vulnerable to attack from on or under water. Alaska Native Technologies, LLC (ANT) propose using broadband active sonar technology coupled with artificial neural networks to provide critical swimmer detection capability at less than $100,000 per 1000 lineal feet of shoreline. A brief feasibility study with a system designed for fish identification performed for the US Navy in 2003 resulted in an 86% swimmer detection rate and a 94% nonswimmer identification rate.
