Abstract:

On 24 February 2004, the Naval Postgraduate School, Commander, THIRD Fleet staff, and AKSI Solutions, LLC, conducted a demonstration for information exchange from a local network of distributed sensors to a remote decision-making node. The goal was to establish connectivity between the two nodes, assess the quality of relayed data transmission from distributed sensors, and determine the viability of the technology for future testing and evaluation of distributed sensor information exchange for maritime missions. The demonstration brought to light the impact of limited bandwidth for data flow, dependence of information quality on collection management, and the need for an architecture to support the recognized maritime picture information exchange. This paper describes the demonstration, expectations, outcomes, and implications for follow-on testing, sensor management applications, information exchange, and use of prototype systems that support emerging technologies.
