Abstract:

Aret¿ Associates and the Applied Research Laboratory of the Pennsylvania State University (ARL) are collaborating to develop a sensor/communications capability to aid the Navy gain much needed oceanographic data in denied areas. The plan is to design and demonstrate an expendable, in-situ sensor package that will measure several ocean parameters autonomously and covertly, record the data, and later transmit the data via an integral communications module. The communications module will rise to the surface to transmit its data via satellite to a base station. The sensor package will be a moored package, and it will be lightweight enough to be carried in by a diver, dropped from and aircraft, or deployed from a ship or an autonomous vehicle. In Phase I, ARL will develop the communications link and will test it with an Aret¿-developed sensor to show a proof of concept.
