Abstract"Submarines with improving stealth and attack capability - particularly modern diesel attack submarines - are proliferating world-wide at an alarming rate. Locating these relatively inexpensive but extremely quiet boats presents our Navy with a formidable challenge (CNO statement to SASC sub committee on Seapower 3May07). Single material properties allow for sensors with increased sensitivity and/or decreased size with dramatically enhanced bandwidth . In the proposed effort these material properties are exploited in Progeny's innovative vector sensor and integrated signal conditioning electronics design approach to enable significant size reduction, packaging efficiency, low frequency and acoustic sensitivity performance, and cost benefits to high priority ASW sensor systems currently in early stages of development such as Deployable Autonomous Distributed System (DADS) and Reliable Acoustic Path Vertical Line Array (RAPVLA).
