Abstract:

Applied Physical Sciences Corp. (APS) will develop designs and proof-of-concept devices to demonstrate a marine mammal detection capability for a variant of the AN/SSQ-125 active source sonobuoy. Acoustic transducers, signal processing algorithms, and data interfaces will be developed and tested. Surrogate targets will be used to facilitate testing. Open-water testing will also use surrogate targets although animals from the U.S. Navy Marine Mammal program may be utilized if separate funding is identified and appropriate approvals are secured. A detailed integration design for the AN/SSQ-125 will be developed to guide plans for a transition effort to PMA-264
