AbstractThis proposal responds to SOCOM SBIR 08-001, "Small Team Command, Control, Communications and Situational Awareness (C3SA)". Small combat diving teams require situational awareness and low-probability-of-detection (LPD) communication both underwater and on-shore. Ceebus Technologies proposes a small, rugged, low-power, dual-environment communication and personnel-tracking system that improves limited-visibility situational awareness and C3 to a level commensurate with clear-visibility operations. A team-based effort will investigate real-time graphical display of individual team member locations; associated range, bearing, and depth (or altitude) information; the ability to seamlessly transition between environments; and the incorporation of LPD text messaging and voice communication. Ultimately, this capability will provide a common operational picture for Special Operations team members, undersea and surface mobility platforms, and tactical commanders in both environments.
