Staff use the maritime autonomy test tank to demonstrate and test prototype technology for unmanned undersea vehicles.

Advanced Undersea Systems and Technology

We develop and assess innovative technology to support the U.S. Navy and Department of Defense's undersea and counter-undersea missions. Our expertise lies in acoustic and non-acoustic sensors, undersea networks, autonomous systems, and advanced signal processing. We perform rigorous systems analyses, develop system architectures, and build prototypes to test the effectiveness of new concepts, capabilities, and processing techniques. Our staff help inform the development of new systems that combine undersea concepts with concepts from other technological domains including communications, sensing, and energy systems.
