Abstract Oceanfront resort cities in the United States have enjoyed steady growth in direct tourism revenue for the past ten years. This growth has resulted in greater numbers of ocean swimmers taking advantage of resort beach facilities. Unfortunately, this increase in swimmer activity has been accompanied by a proportional rise in shark attack incidents. Shark attacks during the twentieth century show a rate of increase which correlates with the population increase near the shore. Over the next three years, our team will research and develop the Shark Detection and Warning System (SDWS) to warn swimmers of possible attack and protect oceanfront revenues. The SDWS will provide resort city managers with a warning of shark presence and an accompanying probability of attack.
Problem Ocean swimmers are concerned with the possibility of shark attack while swimming.
HF SONAR tracking • Environmentally friendly • Aesthetically pleasing • Safe • “Off the shelf” parts • Proven technology • Proven effectiveness
Bottom Line • Schedule – 3 years • Budget – $3,000,000 • Profit – 3rd unit
Why? • Why will the project take so long? • Why does it cost so much? • Why don’t we see profit until the 3rd unit?
Ideal Location • Area with natural barriers • Single point of entry • Narrow opening • Coverage with 1 or 2 sensors
Realistic Location • Long, straight beaches • Florida, north/south beaches • Requires sensor array • One mile sections to be effective
Project Implementation Plan • Functional Specifications • Prototype and Funding Demonstration • Production / Installation of Unit 1 • Follow-on Production
