Abstract:

The primary goal of this program is to develop and deploy an Unmanned Swimmer Intercept and Verification USIV system for terminal swimmer detection and targeting. This system will provide the US Navy and port security organizations with the ability to detect, track, and assess unauthorized swimmers using autonomous and semi-autonomous operation. The system uses field-proven components integrated into a system that will locate and confirm the classification of a target detected as a potential swimmer by an early warning system. It will provide high quality imagery that commanders can rely upon to take action against surface and underwater threats.
