Abstract:

The Maritime Mobile Force Protection MMFP project provided an on-water demonstration of the feasibility of providing US Coast Guard USCG escort vessels a real-time, user directed tactical command and control C2 capability for the execution of mission escort duties and coordination with escorted units. The project focused on developing a mobile on-the-water C2 capability for USCG escort vessel Patrol Commanders during the conduct of escort missions of high value unit HVU vessels between portharbor and open waters. The scope of the project consisted of integrating new off board shore mounted above water sensors with current on board sensors, adding organic underwater sensors, and integrating sensor collection and distribution networks with a vessel mounted Console Display. System design provided control of radars and cameras for detection of surface contacts, and acoustic sensors for detection of underwater objects. System software allowed ingestion of AIS Automatic Identification System and GPS data, and provided a contact correlation capability for discrimination among detected objectscontacts.
