Signal Systems Corporation in Severna Park, MD has been awarded a contract by the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division to use current sonobuoy systems to investigate the environment of coastal waters. Coastal waters experience rapid and sudden changes in environmental characteristics so it is important to the Navy to be able to make these measurements quickly and whenever needed. The contract was awarded as a Phase III Small Business Innovative Research contract, for $25 million over five years.
SSC is tasked to use the currently available air deployable active receiver (ADAR) sonobuoy in order to take these environmental measurements and to help give information which will determine the most effective way to search for hostile submarines.
Signal Systems' technology in multistatic signal and information processing is used for environmental assessment, improved target detection capability and advanced distributed networked sensor systems.
