Research Institution
The Persistent Anchorless Active Sonar Craft (PAASC) system is a unique approach to Naval ASW that achieves 90-day mission endurance carrying a state-of-the-art active sonar (DWADS) in a deep water operating area. The PAASC achieves this unparalleled endurance via an efficient balance between wave- and solar-energy-harvesting and fossil-fuel-based power generation and reduces the overall size, weight, and shipboard footprint of the system in comparison to a fossil-fuel only design.
