Abstract
Advanced Coherent Technologies, LLC (ACT) is using a multi-spectral, multi-channel imaging system to detect and monitor marine mammals. The system, designed with US Navy funding, is intended to monitor mammals on US Navy submarine training ranges prior to and during Navy active acoustic training activities. ACT has conducted system tests and data collection activities at the St. Lawrence Seaway (Quebec, Canada), at Ma'alaea Bay (Maui, Hawaii), and from the Coronado Bay Bridge (San Diego, California). A description of the imaging system and the results of the data collections are discussed and presented.
