Abstract
"The Navy has recently exerted a focused management effort TSMS for submarines, resulting in significant progress in several areas. TSMS functionality includes noise detection, noise localization, and extrapolation of measured noise to far fieldvulnerability. Due to limited research and development funding, none of these functional areas has received concerted attention for algorithmic improvement since the implementation of existing TSMS baselines.In our view TSMS is not primarily an analysis workstation but a tactical tool to identify acoustic vulnerabilities as promptly and quantitatively as possible, and to identify actions required for mitigation. While the current baseline makes it a valuablemeasurement and diagnostic asset, it has potential to be a prominent tool used establish and maintain tactical control against threat submarines. DSR intends to focus on the goals of making TSMS more tactically useful and less operator intensive. This SBIR topic presents an opportunity to explore and develop significant improvements to the TSMS functional capabilities. The opportunity for transition of any developed improvements is especially good since the modularity of the current TSMSCOTS-based software baseline can support a wide range of processing improvements flexibly and without architectural impact. DSR proposes to identify improvements in five specific areas of TSMS performance:¿ More rigorous transient detection and chara
