Abstract
Underwater surveillance is inherently difficult because data transmission is limited and unpredictable when targets and sensors move around in the communication-opaque undersea environment. This report summarizes a three-year research project finding inspiration in Nature’s collaborative tasks, such as wolves hunting in packs, to advance undersea-surveillance. The research proposes an unsupervised surveillance concept aimed at maximizing target localization and sensor covertness. This research project leverages recent technological advances to address two unique undersea challenges: intermittent communications and dynamic environmental changes. This document first reviews the scientific objectives and engineering challenges pertaining to these research activities before discussing impacts, results, and future challenges.
