Persistent Active Deployable Systems (PADS)
Persistent Active Deployable System (PADS) consists of an Autonomous Station Keeping Vehicle (ASKV) that features an inflatable hull to maximize packaging efficiency and allows an innovation low drag hull form a passive propulsion device. The ASKV provides the platform, buoyancy and control for the deployable active Sonar. Two of the packaged systems will be stored in a standard ISO container and easily deployable from a platform such as the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS). Our technical approach begins with system level modeling. We will begin with modeling the operational environment to calculate power requirements. This will also include some systems engineering at the subsystem and component levels. Following system level modeling, we will perform technology research and development into critical components and develop a solid model. Development of PADS will build on the experience and knowledge we have gained from the research performed on numerous other projects for an autonomous underwater station-keeping buoy and Risk Management and Systems Engineering consultation for the Deep Water Active Deployable System (DWADS). We will build upon that knowledge by designing an autonomous, sea-keeping vehicle that controls the transmit-and-receive functions of the sonar system.
