SOF combat swimmers have a need for the continuous monitoring of each others relative position while diving and for the capability of being able to communicate with each other to help establish a common operational picture (COP).The C3SA system was previously developed under SBIR Topic SOCOM08-001 thru the receipt of both Phase I and Phase II SBIR awards.The C3SA established a stand-alone network where each diver carried a C3SA device that formed a node in the C3SA network.The C3SA system successfully met all of the required situational awareness and communications objectives of the Phase II effort, and provided the low probability of detection (LPD)/low probability of interception (LPI) real time tracking of Special Operation Forces (SOF) underwater in nighttime and daytime conditions via a visual interface mounted on a TAC board.The SOF operators goals significantly changed during baseline development, however, affecting the Human Factor Integration requirement for the C3SA device and the C3SA was not transitioned as a result.Since then, Ceebus Technologies, LLC has continued to refine the size of the design and have successfully demonstrated a smaller design is possible due to recent advances in related technologies.
