Abstract

The Modular Covert Communications System (MCCS) will bring together the world leading expertise of JPAnalytics LLC in the areas of adaptive signal processing, underwater acoustic communications and high frequency acoustic propagation analysis, the experience and expertise of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in designing and developing small low-power deployable systems of systems for the oceanographic and commercial communities and the U.S. Navy, and the system development and integration experience of BAE Systems. The MCCS will incorporate proprietary technologies in signal coding and modulation and low-SNR multi-stage adaptive equalization and decoding, and the proven methods of WHOI in integrating communication systems into operational UUVs and Navy assets. The resulting system provide the Navy with highly capable modular system that will enable multiple types of platforms to communicate seamlessly over a wide range of environments while still maintaining an LPD posture.
