ABSTRACT
This article reports that the American services and other agencies have several projects under way that could contribute to future networked pervasive sensing capabilities. The U.S. Navy is developing the Advanced Deployable System, a passive sonar surveillance capability that would be built of distributed and unattended sensors on the seabed. DARPA on July 30, 2004, published a broad agency announcement for a new program in persistent ocean surveillance. The goal of this effort is to develop a network of undersea sensors capable of holding position against wind and waves, to monitor ocean activity over long periods of time.
