CHECKMATE The Ultimate Remotely Deployable Undersea Platform

International Underwater Storage Ltd ("IUWS") publishes a Paper for an Undersea Surveillance Barrier, based on its CHECKMATE undersea platform, suitable for screening a port facility.

The proposal provides for a triple barrier with detection modules at 5, 13 and 24 kms offshore from the focal point.  The table gives the warning time at each barrier for a vessel travelling at 30 Knots.

                       Time at 30
                        Knots to      Length of   Number of CHECKMATE
    Distance from       travel to    individual       surveillance
    focal point           shore        barrier          packages
      5km, 3 miles       5 mins         16km               8
      13km, 8 miles      14 mins        41km               20
     24km, 15 miles      26 mins        75km               37

Full details of the Paper can be found on the IUWS web site @ http://www.underwaterstorage.com/checkmate/Surveillance Barrier.pdf

This Paper proposes a solution to the problem of port surveillance, and the detection of small high speed offensive craft.  The barrier operates 24 hours per day, seven days a week and 52 weeks a year without interuption and monitors entry to and movement across an area of over 90,000 Hectares - how many patrol craft would be required to achieve this?  

And CHECKMATE can deliver this level of efficiency at a significantly lower capital cost than that of the number of patrol craft which would be required to attempt to match it - and at effectively zero operational cost to be compared with the operational costs of keeping a number of patrol vessels at sea.
