Boston Engineerings proposed project significantly increases the Navys capabilities by providing a technology that performs superbly in tactically critical littoral and VSW applications currently unaddressed. We propose to advance the existing technology readiness level (TRL) by combining our GhostSwimmer AUV with actuation, sensing, payload, and processing technology as applicable. Our proposed program is aimed at doing two things: 1) advancing the technology, its capability, and design for transition while directly supporting and performing in a naval demonstration in 2015 and 2) providing options for a series of demonstrations and next generation improvements based upon the success and lessons learned in (1).
