Abstract
This paper presents an assessment of present and near-future maritime surveillance technologies. Radar, optical and infrared sensor systems are each discussed. Thirty-two major domestic and foreign manufacturers' market position, current products and their applications are reviewed. State-of-the-art research is presented and analyzed to see in what direction the future of maritime surveillance is headed. In examining current systems and those being researched, rapid signal processing, data fusion, interpretation and dissemination constitute the major challenges and provide the most opportunities for improvement.
