Research Institution
Under the Phase II program we will develop and demonstrate a wide band automated handheld sonar acoustic intercept system for divers. The Phase II system will automatically detect and classify active sonar emissions and will alert the diver when threat sonars have been detected. We will provide the diver a bearing to the source transmission and also provide him with a threat zone which must not be crossed in order to ensure the diver is not detected by the active sonar. Our open architecture approach will ensure that our system can be readily integrated into the next generation Tactical Underwater Navigation System (TUNS) or any other platform desired by the Program and Transition Sponsors.
