Marine Acoustics, Inc., proposes applying the team's operational expertise and tactical decision aid (TDA) technology to the development of a TDA that innovatively applies tactical oceanography principles to the employment of multistatic ASW assets. The foundation of the TDA module architecture will be the integration of innovative parametric sonar equation matrix analysis techniques with existing multistatic analysis tools and data base And modeling resources. On the basis of the attributes of the module architecture, the user interface will be designed to present a clear assessment of the operating environment and key driving factors, identify the tactical constraints and opportunities, and be responsive to changing operational conditions. The development of our-approach will require designing and developing the employment concept of operation for, the decision, aid designing the technical concept, identifying the modeling and long term support concept, identifying and designing the transition architecture and developing proof of concept prototype. The software module will be designed to be fully compatible with the TCP architecture to leverage existing data resources, ensure access to platform position and kinematic data from JMCIS, and ensure accessibility to a wide range of potential fleet users.
