Research Institution
Triton Systems, Inc. (Triton), is developing an Autonomous Undersea Vehicle that provides covert and persistent undersea surveillance in littoral waters. It utilizes less energy than other similar vehicles (low Joule/km and net positive Joules/year), and can operate in shallow coastal environment where others cannot. The system is called the Persistent, Autonomous, Repositionable, Surveillance (PARS) vehicle. There is an urgent operational need for this capability in order to identify and track potential threats, and to allow friendly assets to make a safe transit. CNO Guidance specifically calls for"long endurance unmanned systems"and"unmanned systems that truly reduce personnel requirements". With the program plan and funding identified in this proposal, a preliminary demonstration will be conducted to show that this approach can meet the CNO endurance goals now and can address capabilitiy gaps in other AUV platforms in place or in development for the Navy.
