SPAWAR Seeks Info on Potential of Undersea Cables as Maritime Surveillance Tools

Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command SPAWARThe Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command is seeking sources on telecommunications and oil and gas technology advances that could lead to using commercial undersea cable systems for maritime surveillance, Military & Aerospace Electronics reported Monday.

John Keller writes the Undersea Cable System and Sonar System Technology Advances program is looking into technology areas such as undersea data transport, remote sensor integration and compact remote power sources.

SPAWAR intends to address performance and cost issues with maritime surveillance systems, the report said.

The Naval unit expects responses to the notice, in the form of white papers, by August 6 and will hold industry briefings regarding the program on July 15.

Maritime surveillance systems use sonar technology to monitor ship traffic and the movements and locations of military vessels along strategic waterways.
