Maritime Surveillance Scenario Simulator

Mitja Vardjan and Jan Porekar

Abstract—As in many areas, typical scenarios are used to aid development of a maritime surveillance system. A software tool was developed to visually present high level aspects of a wide area surveillance scenario. Two basic types of objects are used in a scenario: threats and assets that are searching maritime area for threats. Assets include airborne, space-borne, maritime and stationary objects. Threats are maritime objects such as smuggling boats or oil pollution. An asset or threat is described by its speed, sensor description, detectability, trajectory, etc. From such input data the tool calculates dynamic behavior and any threat detections using spherical Earth model and simple radar equations. Each detection is associated with time, objects involved, text description and an image. The produced output is suitable for visual, animated and interactive presentation in an external geobrowser such as Google Earth.

Index Terms—Animation, detection, simulation, surveillance.
