Abstract
"The 3 inch Acoustic Device, Countermeasure (ADC) MK2 is theNavy's standard torpedo countermeasure which has been deployedon submarines for over 20 years. The Mobile ADC MK2 device iscurrently under development and will provide significanttactical value in putting as much seperation between thelaunching submarine and the countermeasure as possible. Inorder to maximize the mobility effectiveness of the Mobile MK2torpedo countermeasure, a cost effective, low risk integrationapproach for new acoustic technlogies, programming, microprocessing, and associated compact electronic packaging wasdeveloped under the Initial Phase I project. The Phase I Optioneffort will complete the detailed optimization ofcomponents/subassemblies designs and provide a technical datapackage suitable to produce the Phase II prototypes.Under the Basic Phase II project, the design will be finalized,materials/parts procured and prototypes fabricated for pre-demonstration risk mitigation testing in prepration for Navydemonstration testing under the Phase II Option.The Phase II Option will provide formal demonstration of theenhanced capabilites utilizing Navy test facilities. The demowill focus on the acoustic, programming, and electronicsenhancement performance factors with the Mobile MK2 design.Phase III will provide pre-production models.BENEFITS: The anticipated benefits of this research will make a significant contribution to protecting Navy surface ships and
