Research Institution
Knowing the exact submarine position while submerged is critical for the Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) submarine programs to ensure mission success. Based on the fiber sensor technology, AGILTRON proposes to realize a distributed sensor device to determine the relative location of a GPS device to its submarine mother ship. The sensor has a high precision over a long distance, and is suitable for harsh environments, such as undersea, with minimal impact on ship operations and covertness. In this Phase I program, a prototype device will be developed and demonstrated for the specific submarine GPS reference application.
