Paper Abstract

This paper describes a Wide Area Integrated Maritime Surveillance (WAIMS) system based on High Frequency Surface Wave Radar (HFSWR) for monitoring surface and low-level air activity within the 200 nm Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). The system is designed to help authorities to locate and identify illegal activities. In particular, we investigate the bias problem from a nonlinear latitude and longitude transformation. The geometric relationship between a sensor and a target position is formulated. Then using Taylor series, an analysis of the nonlinear transformation bias is done with comparison of calculated and simulated results.
