Twin-line cable and array shape modeling systemMakai has received a 5-year, $5mill IDIQ from the Space and Naval Warfare System Center (SPAWAR) for engineering services to complete the development, testing and delivery of a cable and array modeling software system for the Surveillance Towed-Array Sensor System (SURTASS) vessels.



The software being developed will allow the Navy SURTASS vessels to accurately determine the shape of towed twin-line arrays during vessel maneuvers resulting in substantial array gain, and improving the ability to track targets. The software product will be initially tested in the laboratory with real-data collected at-sea followed by real-time at-sea operations to test and validate the model's capabilities before acceptance by the U.S. Navy.
