Battelle will work with the University of Hawaii on the college’s research into undersea technologies that are intended to support the country’s homeland security mission.
Battelle will evaluate and transition work from the Center for Island, Maritime and Extreme Environment Security that is housed within the university, UH said Wednesday.
The Department of Homeland Security-led CIMES is tasked to research and develop products geared toward maritime domain awareness for first responders and security personnel.
Among the center’s key projects with UH is the Unmanned Port Security Vessel, a robotic platform designed for maritime missions such as seafloor profiling, mapping and study, reconnaissance, or water pollution detection.
Other CIMES hardware, software, data, models and knowledge tools include those for remote power stations, satellite systems, shore-based radars, passive acoustic systems and differnet sensors.
