Abstract
THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL INVESTIGATE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY, SYSTEM REQUIREMENT, PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION, AND COST OF AN EXPENDABLE OCEAN SENSOR SYSTEM TO MEASURE SEVERAL IMPORTANT ENVIRONMENTAL PARAMETERS. THE ABILITY TO MAKE THESE MEASUREMENTS QUICKLY, ACCURATELY, AND AT LOW COST IMPACTS A NUMBER OF TACTICAL SCENARIOS. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL RELY HEAVILY ON PROVEN AND LOW COST SONOBUOY TECHNOLOGY. A SURVEY OF EXISTING SENSOR TECHNOLOGY AND PERFORMANCE VERSES COST TRADEOFF WILL BE COMPLETED. SENSORS PARTICULARLY SUITABLE FOR REMOTE SENSING FROM AN EXPENDABLE BUOY IN A DYNAMIC OCEAN ENVIRONMENT WILL BE EMULATED. THE USE OF AN EXPENDABLE BUOY AS PART OF A COMPLETE DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM WILL BE DEFINED. THE DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM WILL UTILIZE EXISTING HARDWARE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT POSSIBLE TO REDUCE DEVELOPMENT COST AND ALLOW TIMELY FLEET IMPLEMENTATION.
