Real time Underwater sensor networks (UWSNs) suffer from localisation issues due to a dearth of incorporation of different geometric scenarios in UWSN scenarios. To address these issues, this paper visualises three specific scenarios of perturbation. First, small sized and large numbered particles of perturbance moving in a tangential motion to the sensor nodes; second, a single numbered and large-sized particle moving in a rectilinear motion by displacing the sensor nodes into sideward and forward direction, and third, a radially outward propagating perturbance to observe the influenced sensor nodes as the perturbance moves outwards. A novel target localisation and tracking is facilitated by including marine vehicle navigation as a source of perturbation. Using semidefinite programming, the proposed perturbation models minimise localisation errors, thereby enhancing physical security of underwater sensor nodes. By leveraging the spin, cleaving motion and radial cast-away behaviour of underwater sensor nodes, the results confirm that the proposed propagation models can be conveniently applied to real time target detection and estimation of underwater target nodes.
