The S-351 mini-sub is a prototype of the Dry Combat Submersible (DCS). This prototype was established as a means of risk reduction prior to a full commitment to the DCS program. Both of these platforms have an operational need to transit with minimum operator fatigue safely to a pre-defined point and covertly deploy and retrieve SEALS. To meet these operational needs, these platforms require upgrades in the areas of situational awareness, human computer collaboration, autopilot, and mid-water-column lock in/lock out. ASSETT has assembled a highly experienced team which includes ASSETT, Draper Lab, and John Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab to provide these improvements. These improvements will be provided as a part of a four block effort with each block providing SOCOM with significant improvement in platform performance. The Block 1 effort addresses situational awareness, human computer collaboration and the algorithm development for vehicle control.
