Multi-Sensor Data Fusion for Littoral Undersea Warfare

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-011
Budget: 09/24/12 - 03/29/13
PI: Marc Robinson

The Phase II.5 effort improves the Multi-Mission Aircraft Likelihood Ratio Tracker (MMALRT) Phase II capability with the the addition of an automated multi-static contact follower that significantly enhances active/passive fusion and improves multiple submarine search capability. The Phase II.5 approach will reduce the cost of executing the Incr...

Three Dimensional Acoustic Sensing Unit (3DASU) Phase II

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB011.2-001-2011
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12
PI: Christopher B. Cechak

SSC proposes a low power tri-axial acoustic sensor that leverages our existing acoustic chambered design to provide a directional sensor that has high

Target Localization Using Multi-Static Sonar with Drifting Sonobuoys

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N093-168
Budget: 12/01/11 - 12/01/13
PI: Filiz Basbug

Future Air ASW will be conducted at higher altitudes, making visual, Mark-On-Top and RF techniques less accurate for receiver localization. Alternatives such as installing GPS receivers in the sonobuoys suffer from high cost or are easily jammed. Recent news reports concerning North Korea s jamming of joint US-South Korea military exercises high...

Spread Spectrum Techniques for Sonar Ping Technology

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-005
Budget: 03/16/11 - 03/16/13
PI: Drake Guenther

Coherent distributed active sonar systems are of great importance for the prosecution of modern day underwater threats. Existing systems typically employ sensor management strategies that underutilize the full capabilities of the multistatic sensor field. If the distributed multistatic field could continuously transmit waveforms, which are sensi...

Spread Spectrum Techniques for Sonar Ping Technology

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-005
Budget: 04/29/10 - 10/29/10
PI: Drake Guenther

Signal Systems Corporation (SSC) proposes to develop a Spread Spectrum Multistatic Active Covert (SSMAC) sonar system. The proposed research will benefit existing sonar systems and also yield revolutionary system concepts. During Phase I, we will develop algorithms necessary for mitigating undesirable sidelobe behavior of pseudo-random noise spr...

Automated Marine Mammal Mitigation Sensor for Multi-Static Active ASW

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N093-167
Budget: 01/26/10 - 07/26/10
PI: Dr. Laurence R. Riddle

Signal Systems Corporation, with its partners USSI and Marine Acoustics Inc, will show, using a simulation based design approach, that it is feasible to develop a highly automated Marine Mammal Mitigation Sonar (M3S), embedded in an AN/SSQ-125 source sonobuoy, which is effective in reducing operator workload while providing marine mammal mitigat...

Target Localization Using Multi-Static Sonar with Drifting Sonobuoys

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N093-168
Budget: 01/20/10 - 07/20/10
PI: Filiz Basbug

Future Air ASW will be conducted at higher altitudes, making visual, Mark-On-Top and RF techniques less accurate for receiver localization. What is needed are techniques that can provide buoy and target localization using just acoustic information. Alternatives such as installing GPS receivers in the sonobuoys suffer from either high cost or are...

Reliable Acoustic Path Vertical Line Array

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-171
Budget: 12/10/09 - 09/14/11
PI: Filiz Basbug

The RAP/VLA and other emerging sonobuoy based sensing systems require a robust over-the-horizon (OTH) communications mechanism that offers low probability of detection (LPD) and low probability of intercept (LPI) as well as secure transmission. Signal Systems Corporation (SSC) will demonstrate a system in water with a RF Gateway Buoy. The RF Gat...

Compact, Efficient Motor Controllers with Active Noise Cancellation

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM09-005
Budget: 06/08/09 - 12/08/09
PI: Mr. Chris Cechak

SSC will use a novel rafting concept that reduces the area authority fo the Active Noise Cancellation solution. This approach is patented and demonstrated in the Smart Skins Demonstration (S2D) program. Mature algorithms provide a low risk path to a Phase I demonstration and a Phase II insertion BENEFITS: The rafting concept enables flexibiity...
