Abstract:

Fishing gear continues to become entangled in SURTASS underwater towed array surveillance equipment causing a variety of damage to the arrays and towing equipment. Because of this, the SURTASS Program Executive Office has sought solutions to these entanglements in SBIR solicitation N102-155. In their Phase I proposal Adaptive Methods proposed methods for fishing gear deconfliction to improve the overall operational availability of the system, and won a Phase I award for development. This was successful and a Phase II proposal was requested. In Phase II Adaptive Methods proposes to develop EDM and PPD equipment for fishing gear deconfliction, building on work performed in Phase I. This equipment will be tested and demonstrated for the Navy in the Phase II Basic work period. In the Phase II Option Adaptive Methods will make final design revisions, develop documentation, conduct design reviews, and prepare for production.
