Abstract"Sonalysts, Inc. proposes to develop a networked modeling and simulation tool to support estimating environmental and tactical performance parameters. The tool will be accessible using any standard web-browser software. It will provide any user havingaccess to a secure wide area network (WAN), such as secret internet protocol network (SIPRnet), with faster than real time acoustic modeling and environmental characterization. This project will leverage Sonalysts' commercial and military modeling,simulation and tactical decision aid (TDA) experience to support multiple and disparate users. This will be further enhanced by our teaming with the Naval Postgraduate School's (NPS) Modeling Virtual Environments and Simulation (MOVES) Institute. Aintuitive graphic user interface (GUI) supported by a modeling decision engine (MDE) will be developed. The MDE will act as an intelligent agent to prevent inappropriate use of models/algorithms in the determination of USW sensor implementation. Becausemany of the users may have limited indigenous computational capability it is anticipated that a central site or sites will serve as a hub to support computationally and data intensive models, algorithms and databases. Potential benefits derived from thisresearch project will be applications to other military, government, and commercial interests involving undersea modeling and simulation. This tool could be beneficial to the U.S. Coast Guard, and
