The PAMGUARD project began investigating next generation Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) software in 2004. By PAMGUARD 3 (2006 – 2007) functionality analogous to that of the “RainbowClick” software was available and ruggedised by seatrials and functionality analogous to the “Ishmael” software was under development. 2D localisation was provided using stereo hydrophones. In this report we document PAMGUARD 4, the final phase of intensive PAMGUARD development. Beyond PAMGUARD 4 we anticipate that the PAMGUARD software will continue to evolve as part of the open-source community. Originally scheduled to run from January 2007 to December 2007 the loss of three key staff at OSU and Heriot-Watt during 2007 reduced available effort and caused the project to be rescheduled to complete in May 2008.
