The coastline of India extends up to nearly 12 Nautical miles which increase the possibility of intruders into the coastline of country (Barr et al. Barrier coverage for underwater sensor networks. IEEE Military communications conference. MILCOM; 2008. p. 1–7) [1]. This work looks into the intrusion of the other submarine to coastline of the country. Most of the existing submarine intrusion detection systems use sonar-based technologies. As submarine hulls can absorb the sonar waves, it can effectively hide from the detection system (Heidemann et al. Research challenges and applications for underwater sensor networking. IEEE Wireless Commun Netw Conf (WCNC). 2006;1:228–35) [2]. The proposed submarine detection system described in this paper helps to avoid this issue. The proposed system uses a wireless sensor network which provides an effective submarine detection and localization. In this work, a new MAC protocol and Routing Protocol is proposed for efficient working of the system.
