Abstract:

As adversarial submarines become quieter and operate in increasingly adverse acoustic environments, the U.S. needs effective non-acoustic detection capability deployed from maritime patrol aircraft. Air-dropped buoys exploiting submarine ELF emmissions offer unique advantages over MAD and other non-acoustic methods. Teamed with USSI, Arete Associates will design the hardware and detection algorithms, predict performance, and conduct testing in realistic environments to demonstrate the concept's tactical utility.
