Research Institution
The proposed research "Deep UUV Deployed Surveillance System" will identify the requirements and formulate a conceptual design for a new wide area underwater surveillance that exploits the unique attributes of deep submergence environments to detect and track atmospheric, seismic and acoustic observations. The effort will address the noise, propagation and geophysical properties of acoustic listening posts that can be found at depths greater than 6 kilometers. Additionally, APS will build a deep ocean data collection tool to collect data for concept validation. Finally, the research will culminate in the detailed design of a deep diving sensor that meets all of the surveillance objectives.
