Abstract

In response to N231-032, Launchable Mini Glider for Variable Payloads, Triton Ocean Systems will provide an open architecture subsea sensor platform based on Triton’s proven low-cost ocean tools: (1) the expendable subDART glider, (2) the LIMBIC inertial navigation system, (3) the openORB surface buoy, (4) the PBOF rotary actuator, (5) the BEM extreme-low-cost buoyancy engine module. Triton has developed these innovative tools for low-cost oceanographic, environmental, and biological data collection. Two system variants are proposed: (1) the miniDART (based on the SUBDART) will be used for both long range and station holding and (2) the optional openORB providing high freeboard antenna placement.

All system variants will be A-size sonobuoy compatible (fitting within the LAU-126A SLC and suitable for air drop).
