Abstract
The Continuous Active Sonar (CAS) program is a NAVAIR project to demonstrate the feasibility of CAS operation for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW). The project is focused on multistatic distributed ASW sonar, supporting the localization-to-attack and maritime shield missions of ASW. In Phase I of this project, Signal Systems Corporation (SSC) demonstrated, using simulations, that a CAS variant of a Directional Command Activated Sonobuoy System (DICASS) may enhance performance for the localization to attack Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) mission. The Phase II objective is to show, using Navy standard system analysis tools and at-sea tests, better environmental compatibility, enhanced detection of strongly specular or `glint' type target reflectors and better energy efficiency due to lower SPL operation. These improvements should result in improved tracking and maritime shield defense.
