Abstract
Fishing activity remains an ongoing threat to bottom laid undersea instrumentation. We are proposing design concepts for the effective installation and protection of undersea cabled systems against fishing threats and the Mission Planning (MP) process required to install them. The threat environment will be defined and characterized, and a protective structure will be designed with a focus on anti-trawl as well as ease of deployment. The Design for Survivability (DfS) structure is an innovative protective technology which includes the installation methods that together will mitigate the threats to distributed undersea acoustic tracking instrumentation. Our DFS Structure, Installation and Mission Planning technology approaches will provide new capabilities that ensure that future training and tracking ranges can be installed that are more reliable for its systems life.
