Abstract
The U. S. Navy has determined that Dense Field Multistatic processing could provide critical detection capability to fleet ASW capability. Affordable implementation of this technology will require miniature Sources and Receivers with ten to one size and weight reductions. Phase I of SBIR N06-041 established the feasibility of achieving miniature impulsive sources in the MJU-10/B form factor that replicate the AN/SSQ-110 capabilities. During Phase II, prototypes of the MJU/10 packaging concept will be built to evaluate HERO survivability, and safe aircraft launch. Testing will be conducted at contractor and Navy facilities to determine performance of sources, electronics, deployment methods, floats, and air/water descent techniques. Phase III buoys will be developed and tested with fully miniaturized electronics, multi channel transmitters and other enhancements.
