Abstract

Sensintel Inc., White River Technologies, and Raytheon Missile Systems propose to develop a small unmanned aircraft system (UAS) magnetically quiet enough to enable the employment of small Magnetic Anomaly Detection (MAD) sensors and capable of performing the High Altitude Anti-Submarine Warfare (HAASW) target interrogation and identification mission profile. The solution, the Magnetically-quiet Expendable Sono-Launched Unmanned Aircraft System (MESL UAS), will be developed leveraging the vast experience of the team members in this arena; specifically with Sensintel s small sonobuoy launched UAS development experience.
