Research Institution
The proposed effort will design and build a 64 channel ASW test/training system that relays individual sonobuoy acoustic data from a master scenario generator to each randomly located/drifting relay sonobuoy. The data is retransmitted as simulated sonobuoy data for purposes of training and testing. This adds a degree of realism to test and training previously unavailable, and is a valid substitute for using real platforms for test/training. The approach applies a software-based overlay to existing test/training systems, and uses a newly-designed reusable floating relay buoy based on an SDR design for future flexiblity.
