Title: Littoral, Deployable, Modular, Sensor (LDMS) System
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N00024-10-C-4138
Award Amount: $300,000.00


The proposed project will create an innovative sensor system to augment an outer ring of defense used for queuing, classifying, and tracking go-fast boats, small and commercial craft, swimmers and divers that are a threat to harbors, anchorages, and other high value assets. The Littoral, Deployable, Modular Sensor (LDMS) system will be part of the Navy's deployable capability in locations where US or host nation security infrastructure is either inadequate or nonexistent. It utilizes a combination of proven sonobuoy sensors and adaptations of current technologies to meet the mission needs. SkySight Technologies' experience and expertise, combined with this unique approach, creates a low cost, lightweight, modular, and reusable system to be easily deployed and recovered by a single person in a small surface craft. The LDMS system can remain on station for 6 months with a weekly battery refresh and is capable of being moored in littoral waters for extended periods because of an innovative, multi component, mooring system. The LDMS system fills a critical gap in Navy sensors, and offers additional governmental and non-governmental applications persistent sensors in littoral waters.
