Abstract
Signal Systems Corporation will develop, test and deliver three acoustic surveillance and warning systems for HMMWV, M113, LAV and unmanned land vehicles. SSC will demonstrate functional compatibility with different Future Combat System (FCS)concepts,fielding a common acoustic system on four land vehicle families. This system will provide detection and localization of acoustic targets, with 100% increase in acquisition ranges, for emissions received on vehicles with large displacement engines.By extending the operating envelope for a range of vehicles, SSC's Platform Noise Reduction technology enables the use of acoustic sensor technology for FCS. These systems will operate on-the-move and have networked communications providing all-weatherreconnaissance, surveillance and warning capability in a low cost/weight package. Multiple platform data fusion of acoustic detections and line of bearing reports will improve reconnaissance capability and survivability for US Army mobile land forces. SSCwill conduct experiments using government supplied manned vehicles (HMMWV, M113 and LAV-25), as well as testing with an Experimental Unmanned Vehicle (XUV), supplied by General Dynamics Robotic Systems (GDRS), subject to Army approval. GDRS, a subsidiaryof General Dynamics Land Systems,will also provide technology transition support for the system, including the Demo III XUV and LAV-GEN III family of vehicles.
