This project will provide support for the Navy's Tactical Signature Guidance and associated training systems. Support will be in the form of acoustic signature modeling, software/system development, upgrades, integration, testing and maintenance for a variety of antisubmarine warfare-related systems and suites such as: Sonar Tactical Decision Aid (STDA), Sonar Performance Predictions Functional Segment (SPPFS-STDA), and the Sonar Tactical Decision Aid for IUSS (STDA-I). In addition to supporting these tactical decision systems, the project will include computer modeling through the continued development of the Scalable Tactical Propagation Loss Engine (STAPLE) and STAPLE Toolkit. Interface development and integration of the tactical decision aids and support modules with additional undersea warfare tactical support systems such as USW-DSS, LCS ASW Mission Package, and Aircraft Carrier-Tactical Support Center configurations. Training systems support include IMAT, PC-IMAT, and IMAT.Explorer.
Requires 2 to 5 years with BS/BA or 0 to 2 years with MS/MA/MBA or 8 to 10 years with no degree.
The Scientist Level 2 shall provide scientific program support for Task Orders within this program. This will include the design, testing, implementation, and post-process analysis of acoustic models that support and validate the tactical decision aids and other tools used in tactical signature guidance support. Working with programmers and engineers, leverage the common signature guidance modeling tools developed for acoustic sensors and extend the common architecture to support non-acoustic sensor modeling. Support documentation, delivery, integration and testing of software and systems. Maintain the operational versions of software and systems through fleet updates and configuration management.
Technical efforts will support Sonar Tactical Decision Aid (STDA) on submarines, the Sonar Performance Predictions Functional Segment (SPPFS-STDA) on surface ship configurations, and the Sonar Tactical Decision Aid for IUSS (STDA-I) for surveillance systems. Efforts shall also support development of the Scalable Tactical Propagation Loss Engine (STAPLE) and the STAPLE Toolkit utilized for signature propagation modeling and analysis. Efforts will also support interface development and integration of the sonar tactical decision aids and supporting modules with additional undersea warfare tactical support systems; such as Undersea Warfare Decision Support System (USW-DSS), LCS ASW Mission Package Command and Control, and Aircraft Carrier-Tactical Support Center (CV-TSC) configurations. Signature guidance training systems including the Interactive Multisensor Analysis Training (IMAT), Interactive Multi-sensor Analysis Trainer for the Personal Computer (PC-IMAT), and IMAT Explore shall also be supported.
