Tactical Decision Aid Model Upgrades

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: James Kraiman, Program Manager
Award Amount: $453,910.00
Abstract:
SSN missions often require littoral operations in shallow, geographically confined regions, where the submarine hull, wakes and/or exposed masts and periscopes could be vulnerable to detection by threat nonacoustic sensors. In addition, little is known about the effect of hull attachments such as… More
