dc.description.abstractThis proposed initiative focuses on developing an integrated UUV/USV multi-glider acoustic and oceanographic sensing system that has potential to provide long-endurance, wide-area environmental sensing and surveillance of the battlespace. The system is intended to be remotely piloted while operating independently of other naval assets. Current undersea and surface glider technologies have proven to be highly reliable and capable of operating continuously over extended (multi-month) periods. Using a distributed approach, a set of undersea and surface gliders working as a networked system can adapt to the environment to operate collaboratively and thereby leverage the best capabilities of both glider types to yield superior performance applicable in many Undersea Warfare and Battlespace Awareness missions. A functional system developed primarily from NPS resources will provide insight into what an operational system may evolve into and offer opportunities to continue research into improving various aspects of system performance. This research initiative is unique in that it emphasizes both engineering (collaborative navigation strategies) and science (acoustic propagation) objectives. Students conducting research in this project will have the opportunity to develop thesis ideas on wide-ranging topics such as controls for a multi-asset system, acoustic communication of critical data and navigational information in challenging environments, and impacts of environmental factors affecting system performance and optimization. Students will also be able to develop efficient onboard processing techniques and investigate innovative methods of fine-tuning and adapting this distributed system in response to changing environmental conditions and/or partial loss in capability.
