Abstract:

The Navy is in the early stages of incorporating high resolution Electro-Optic IDentification EOID sensors into shallow water littoral zone minehunting systems on towed, remotely operated, and autonomous platforms. These downlooking laser-based sensors operate at unparalleled standoff ranges in visible wavelengths to image and identify mine-like objects that have been detected through other sensing means such as magnetic induction and various modes of acoustic imaging. Our long term goal is to provide a robust automated target cueing and identification capability for use with these imaging sensors. It is also our goal to assist the Navy in understanding, quantifying, and ultimately predicting the detection, identification, and false alarm performance of these systems in varied conditions of water quality, ambient light, and range to target.
