Robust Deployable Acoustic Node (RDAN)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Applied Physical Sciences Corp. working with L-3 Communications Maripro will develop a trawl-resistant, Robust Deployable Acoustic Node (RDAN). The RDAN technology will enable the U.S. Navy to install and operate acoustic underwater training ranges in shallow water environment to enhance fleet readiness. The acoustic sensor on the node will be specially designed to provide excellent acoustic fidelity as a tracking hydrophone while maintaining a relatively low profile to minimize risk from commercial fishing activities. The RDAN system will be deployable from vessels-of-opportunity rather than specialized cable laying ships. Commercialization within the U.S. Navy and the oil and gas industry will be pursued.
