Abstract : The Center for Coastline Security Technology (CCST) focuses on research, simulation, and evaluation of coastal defense and marine domain awareness equipment, sensors, and components. It builds upon the existing efforts and expertise in coastal systems and sensor research at the Institute for Ocean and Systems Engineering (IOSE), the Imaging Technology Center, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, and the University Consortium for Intermodal Transportation Safety and Security at Florida Atlantic University. This report describes a number of projects that were carried out during year two of this program. The following projects are described in the report: 1) Development of a Remotely Piloted, Unmanned, Untethered, Underwater Vehicle (RPUUV); 2) Development of Acoustic Piloting, Communications and Positioning systems; 3) Environmental Assessment and Modeling: Monitoring Turbidity in Ports; 4) Development of a High Resolution Imaging Sonar for Underwater Inspections; 5) Experimental determination of the hydrodynamic/dynamic characteristics of a small underwater vehicle for port security; 6) Hydrodynamic and Dynamic Investigations for the Development of a Small Underwater Vehicle for Underwater Hull Inspection and Harbor Survey; 7) RPUUV Navigation and Control; 8) Development of a Chemical Sensor system for small underwater vehicles; 9) Development of HDMAX High-Resolution QUAD-HD Progressive Scan Electronic Camera Systems; 10) 3D Imaging and 3D Video Technologies for Coastline Security Applications
