Abstract
The current tested and proven LBVDS system is limited in the platforms that can host it due to the large volume and weight requirements of the system. Active Signal Technologies proposes to retain the high power density features of the system, but modify it to retain as much performance as feasible in a much smaller package. To achieve this, we will perform a rigorous study of materials, transducers, arrays and deployment systems based on both modeling and the build/test experience we have with several types of each component. At the conclusion of the study, we will generate a design for a system that will exceed 200 dB SL in the 1-7 kHz band, retain directivity, be rapidly deployable, and be small enough in size to be installed on a wide variety of platforms, including unmanned vehicles. The Phase I program will concentrate on the down select of components, and the Option Phase will develop a system design based on the results of Phase I in preparation for prototype system development in Phase II.
