Abstract:

The objective of this proposal is to develop a modification kit for the AN/SSQ-53 series of sonobuoys that will enable them to have a precision guidance and glide capability. The quick modification and installation kit will feature a slip on wing and tail assembly along with a precision guidance module that will enable the sonobuoy to be modified in-flight if necessary and launched from either the Pressurized Sonobuoy Launch Tubes or the freefall chute with the fiberglass liner installed. This technology will have an enormous impact on the current and future ASW tactical capability for maritime patrol aircraft as it will allow them greater mission durations, tactical flexibility, greater kill probabilities and potential access to denied waters.
