Abstract

Triton Systems proposes to develop a sonobuoy structure with vastly reduced sea state driven motion. Motion and tilting of sonobuoy acoustic sensor arrays can negatively impact sensor acoustic detection and localization performance. The Triton system will integrate into an A size sonobuoy and maintain the reliability and robustness of current systems. In Phase I Triton will develop the design concept and evaluate component and system feasibility and performance.
