Akoostix entered into a contract with the JIP in December of 2007 to develop a PAM detection software module for PAMGUARD. The primary objective of the module was to address deficiencies in mysticetes detection using marine mammal detection experience gained through projects for Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) as the foundation. The project was completed in December of 2008. This report documents the contracted work. The work was conducted in two phases. During the first phase the original algorithm was improved and the detection performance was examined using available data. In the second phase a custom PAMGUARD module was designed, developed, integrated, and tested. Beyond development of a PAMGUARD detection algorithm, Akoostix also focused on applying standard user interface design and software engineering practices to ensure the usability of the module.
