Research Topics


The P3C AN/AQA-7 (V) 10/11-SASP Acoustic processors provide almost unlimited selection of base band and multi-vernier settings by the acoustic operator. However, enviromnental conditions, processor capabilities and threat characteristics must all be considered in making selection decisions by the operator. The objective of this project is to research and develop a Proof-Of-Concept (POC) level design of an On-Board Mode Selection Computer Program for the P3C U III SASP acoustic operator base on previous Phase I results. This effort will include the development of an object-oriented Acoustic Threat Target OBMS Data Base; expansion, up-dating, testing and modification of OBMS MOE, operator interface, display interface, display interface, Raymode interface and output software and algorithms; data entry and programming of all OBMS algorithms, software routines and data storage/recall software; OBMS System testing, validation and further research and development; delivery of a Proof-Of Concept level of design prototype system; POC System field testing, evaluation and modificaton; and delivery of a POC System will full OBMS documentation and an Operators Manual to support future USN development and evaluation.
