Abstract:

Alaska Native Technologies (ANT) and Johns Hopkins University-Applied Physics Lab (JHU-APL) have teamed to present an innovative, solution to the acoustic inversion sensor problem by combining a new, cost effective, high gain, broadband array (JHU, sponsored by ONR Code 32) with a new UUV (glider, ANT, sponsored by ONR Code 321) designed to operate in littoral areas that has extensive onboard processing capability and communications, JHU has been developing a new array composed of inexpensive PVDF wire. The compact array has been successfully tested and would fit on the nose of a new glider. Littoral Glider (LG) can carry the array and process the data in situ and report results during its weeks-long mission.
