Abstract
The AAI CMAS conceptual Phase I design focused on two primary design features: the feasibility of designing AEER and IEER-type acoustic sources capable of meeting the CMAS mission requirements, and designing both acoustic source and vehicle propulsion modules compatible with A-size sonobuoy packaging constraints. AAI’s Phase II design successfully meets these CMAS requirements. The proposed CMAS design is modular. Broadband and narrow-band acoustic sensor modules have been designed. A modular vehicle propulsion unit has also been designed. These modules are interchangeable either in the “field” or at the “factory”. Significant echo repeater source levels have been achieved within sonobuoy A-size packaging constraints. AAI is very confident that successful demonstration of this design and subsequent transition to an operational system is achievable in a Phase II /Phase III development program
