The Commandable Mobile ASW Simulator (CMAS) operational need was identified by NAVAIR and by the Fleet community to obviate the use of fleet subsurface assets in the conduct of Navy RDT&E testing of airborne ASW acoustic sensor systems, as well as Fleet at-sea training of multi-static acoustic sensor systems and advanced dipping sonar systems. The CMAS vehicle developed in Phase I and Phase II contracts is an A-size autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). The primary objective of this Phase II.5 SBIR program is to refine and upgrade the Phase II CMAS prototype design to incorporate those features not included in the prototype buoy but which are required to bring CMAS to a TRL of 6 and ensure transition to a Phase III SBIR program. A second objective of this Phase II.5 contract is to build and deliver five over-the-side ship-deployable CMAS units to the Navy for use in at-sea trials with the MAC and ALFS ASW sensor systems. An option task is identified to fabricate additional models incorporating a decelerator package and demonstrating air launch capability.
