Ongoing efforts are being performed by ManTech personnel in the areas associated with underwater acoustics pertaining to SONAR and Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), ship silencing and signature reduction, and the establishment of coastal defense systems for Homeland Security. ManTech efforts associated with these research and development projects have included analyses of the fundamental physical processes involved; development of performance requirements and state-of-the-art conceptual system architectures to meet specific mission objectives; designing, planning, and conducting laboratory and at-sea experiments to evaluate the concepts; support for the development of prototype and production system components; designing, planning, and conducting at-sea tests to validate operational performance relative to the requirements; development of operational tactical employment concepts; and generation of tactical training aids. Under NSWCCD contract N00167-00-D-0110, ManTech personnel perform trade-off evaluations of existing hardware/software systems abilities, including implementation of system and/or tactical employment modifications, to meet requirements. In cases where existing systems cannot meet the mission requirements, our engineers develop conceptual design solutions, perform trade-off analyses, and either develop the needed system and/or support formal U.S. Navy acquisition programs. ManTech personnel also developed a concept of processing spatially separated sonar arrays to provide enhanced detection and localization ASW capabilities, specifically in littoral areas. The proposed concept defined the sensor array systems, deployment configurations, telemetry and interfaces, advanced signal processing algorithms, and enhanced display formats to improve battlespace management and collision avoidance.
