  3. ON-THE-BOTTOM SURVEILANCE BUOY

    SBC: Defense Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SONOBUOY ON THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN CAN ACHIEVE LONG DETECTION RANGES BY USE OF THE RELIABLE ACOUSTIC PATH (RAP). BY PUTTING AN ACOUSTIC SIGNAL PROCESSOR IN THE BUOY TO DO SPECTRUM ANALYSIS AND CONTACT REPORT GENERATION, THE DATA TRANSMITTED TO SURVEILLANCE AIRCRAFT CAN BE REDUCED TO SHORT BURSTS ON A SCHEDULE THAT MEETS PATROL AIRCRAFT REVISIT REQUIREMENTS FOR INCREASED AIRCRAFT UTILIZATION AT ...
