Abstract
Improving sonobuoy splash point accuracy from high altitude deployments can be accomplished by designing a new descent mechanism (or making modifications to current systems), and / or improving the performance of existing splash point prediction algorithms. In order to maximize performance, we intend to continue the approach taken during Phase I and attack both problems in parallel during Phase II. The simulation developed during Phase I will be upgraded for improved fidelity, performance and integration with US Navy systems. The innovative deployment technique designed during Phase I will be developed into a proof of concept system and evaluated during extensive testing. All of the systems will be demonstrated in a final at sea exercise.
