In this project, we will develop innovative and advanced display and processing techniques, and innovatively combine existing algorithms, software, and systems, to create a Detection Avoidance System for Submarines (DASS) that assists the submarine operator, planner, and commanding officer (CO) in minimizing the probability that a submarine penetrating into and operating within an A2/AD zone will be detected by threat ASW assets, or, in the case of an attack mission, minimizing the probability of being detected by the threat target before successfully attacking the target. In particular, DASS will assist the friendly submarine operator to select optimal operating modes and/or: (1) Penetration routes into an A2/AD zone or transit routes within an A2/AD zone (2) Patrol areas that allow the submarine to accomplish its mission successfully within an A2/AD zone while remaining undetected.
