Akoostix Inc. announced today that it has won a competitive bid for support to the Marine Mammal Mitigation / Towed Array and Sonobuoy Multistatic Trials. This work will involve upgrading the Acoustic Subsystem, a module used in the Slocum Glider and Stealth Buoy, to perform detection of marine mammal vocalizations and integration of data from detections into the Acoustic Cetacean Detection Capability (ACDC) workstation. These efforts will support improved environmental mitigation during active sonar trials. It will also involve developing data interfaces between sea trial data gathering equipment and STAR (Software Tools for Analysis and Research) via DRDC Data Servers. This contract will culminate in approximately 3 weeks worth of sea trials in the Caribbean in early 2007.
