This dataset report presents a description of data collected during the 2013 TALON demonstration at the NATO Science and Technology Organization (STO) Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE). This dataset contains 8 days of data containing ship detections from marine radar, terrestrial Automatic Identification System (AIS), ship-borne AIS, and video camera sensors. Also included are the high-accuracy Global Positioning System (GPS) tracks of test boats used during the TALON demonstration. The purpose of this publication is to provide a reference multi-sensor dataset for the development and evaluation of processing algorithms. Potential research applications include multi-sensor data fusion, anomaly detection algorithms, traffic characterization, and visual analytics. The data is available on request from CMRE.
