There is a significant security threat to the natural gas and crude oil production wells and conveyance pipelines, out to and under sea as well. A sonar based system was developed to detect, track, identify and classify all the undersea threats along the boundaries of the territorial waters of the State of Israel. The process included performance research in signal processing and tracking, and a full system simulation.
