It focuses on the issue of vulnerability to underwater attacks of marine or coastal infrastructure such as offshore platforms, ports or boats at anchor; issues which are currently addressed either very little or not at all.
The objective is to introduce the concept of an acoustic barrier for the detection and 3D imaging of an underwater intrusion. The innovative nature of the system comes from the combination of two identical multibeam sonars which use a fully active “Mills Cross” array.
