Abstract
In operational use of towed arrays, environmental factors conspire to degrade the acoustic performance of the array. Overall improvements in performance will be the result of a systems approach that addresses the entire degradation equation. Triton Systems proposes a simple effective straightening approach that will work at all speeds and will have minimal acoustic impact on the array. During Phase II, the team will develop the concept using a simulation-based design approach. The design will be prototyped and the simulation will be validated with test data. The validated simulation will then be used to predict operational array straightening performance and a with increased confidence.
