The division of the army strives to keep up, via its workplace of Naval examine (ONR), a lively technology and expertise (S&T) software in these parts thought of severely vital to U.S. naval superiority within the maritime atmosphere, together with littoral waters and shore areas. In pursuing its S&T investments in such parts, ONR needs to make sure that (1) a strong U.S. study power to paintings on long term S&T difficulties in components of curiosity to the dep. of the army and the dept of security is continued, (2) an sufficient offer of latest scientists and engineers in those parts is maintained, and (3) S&T items and techniques essential to be certain destiny superiority in naval conflict are supplied. one of many severe components for the dept of the army is undersea weapons.
An evaluate of Undersea guns technology and Technology assesses the wellbeing and fitness of the present army application in undersea guns, evaluates the Navy's learn attempt to increase the functions wanted for destiny undersea guns, identifies non-Navy-sponsored study and improvement efforts that may facilitate the improvement of such complicated guns functions, and makes options to concentration the Navy's examine software in order that it could actually meet destiny needs.

So some facilities will continue to be necessary, and the associated technical capabilities, personnel, and equipment must be of high quality. Acoustic test facilities appear to be adequate for undersea weapons S&T. There appear to be sufficient numbers of research vessels and commercial craft that can be leased, as necessary, to support an S&T program. Distributed, secure simulation facilities are needed in greater numbers and capability, and the current plans for these should be encouraged to achieve greater efficiency and economy.
It is presumed that since the WDO program is in its early stages of development, an end-to-end application of the process is unlikely for some time, but the committee lauds ONR for parallel development and application, provided that feedback is used to improve the process. Furthermore, the committee believes that successful development and application of WDO could help to alleviate a serious concern, namely that the operations and systems analysis was not adequate to support development and evaluation of the weapon system concept.
The intelligent control architecture necessary to manage this type of information and decision making is now available. Similarly, the depth dependence of the weapons could be dealt with. Current weapons are launched at the best depth for coverage of the water column. However, in shallow water with downward refraction there are large areas that the weapon is not able to interrogate. In addition, frequencyselective fading is best handled by depth changes. Communicating weapons could coordinate their search strategies in the depth plane.
