Abstract

Triton Systems is developing 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 integrates into an A size sonobuoy and maintains the reliability and robustness of current systems. In Phase I Triton developed two design concepts and demonstrated feasibility of both with significant performance improvement.
