Abstract
The Objective of the Phase 1 AROSS program was to develop a system concept that could provide coastal zone wave spectra measurements and promote scientific advances in littoral oceanography. Coastal wave spectra measurements were based on space/time imaging for algorithm development. The resulting products included providing littoral parameters including depth, waves and current. Military operations benefiting from the data products based on space/time imaging include expeditionary forces, landing zone bathymetry, wave & current determination. The focus of the Phase II effort will be to fully transition the major TLS products into the COBRA PMA station. The baseline tasks will consist of integrating the TLS Currents and Bathymetry (Bathy, Sand Bar, and SZ Characterization) with the COBRA PMA station. The optional task will consist of integrating Digital Elevation Maps (DEM) with the COBRA PMA station. The proposed technology will significantly aid in the planning of MCM assault breaching missions and rescue missions. Specifically, the combination of COBRA products with AROSS / TLS products will provide actionable information such as targeting, GPS mensuration, and hydrographic characterization of potential littoral penetration zones.
