Abstract:

The goal of this contract N00014-07-C-0722 is to develop a portable system for underwater port security focusing on ship hull scanning. This, and previous efforts, have been to develop a system that meets the requirements of the Coast Guard, the Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team EOD and local law enforcement. The result is a Mobile Inspection Package MIP, capable of surveying ship hulls, seawall, pilings, and seafloors. The MIP can be mounted on numerous platforms such as a Coast guard vessel, a Remotely Operated Vehicle ROV, or an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle AUV. Previous versions of the MIP have been extensively validated in real-world conditions, and under operational constraints, in collaboration with the US Coast Guard e.g., Super Bowl XXXIX with the Coast Guard and the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office
