Abstract
Stationary sensors are deployed in the ocean to provide situational awareness. Although the sensors provide valuable data, they cannot be repositioned as the situation changes. Increased capabilities of unmanned vehicles offer the potential to combine the sensors with the unmanned vehicle to produce a sensor that can be repositioned by the operational commander. In addition, it is desirable to deploy the unmanned vessel from an aircraft, for the vessel to reposition itself at high speed and for the vessel to project low or no signature. This proposal identifies the approach to develop the unmanned vessel from operationally important mission scenarios, to down select to a specific hull design and to define the provisions necessary for the vessel to survive the air deployment.
