Abstract
"In Phase II Daniel H. Wagner Associates, Inc. proposes to developa prototype Current, Wind, and Wave Data Fusion (CWWDF) systemfor Mine Countermeasures (MCM) and amphibious warfare. Theproposed CWWDF system will significantly improve the ability ofNaval MCM and amphibious warfare forces to carry out theirmissions through the more effective use of availableenvironmental data to accurately estimate the current, wind, andwave conditions in the area of interest. The system will allowMCM planners and operators to: (1) Improve the placement ofcleared lanes for use by landing craft, making it easier for thelanding craft to stay in these lanes, (2) Develop more effectiveplans for MCM systems, such as divers and UUVs, that aresignificantly affected by current, wind, and waves, (3) Improvethe ability to sweep pressure mines, and (4) (Option) Moreaccurately estimate the location of drifting mines at all timesof interest, optimize search for them, and estimate their source.BENEFITS: Improved MCM and amphibious warfare technologies such as these are particularly necessary at a time when the United States is facing a sophisticated mine threat with limited fundsto procure additional MCM assets/sensors. Effective use of environmental data fusion techniques in MCM and amphibious warfare operations will produce more effective operations, conducted at lower risk, which will result in fewer casualties to friendlyforces and improved overall operationa
