Abstract : NADC has the responsibility for executing and sponsoring R&D projects to build on the Navy's Technology base for improved ASW systems. The objective of project NICRAD-85-NADC-008 is to provide information to support NADC's planning and management of future Sonobuoy development and acquisition programs. IPD tabulates Navy Requirements and conducts a computerized search, analysis, and evaluation of U.S. patented inventions which offer promise towards improving the design of future Sonobuoys. IPD contacts the owners of the selected inventions to determine the current status of the invention, and the owners' suggested path to its implementation in terms of Navy Requirements. Keywords: Sonobuoys, Requirements, Patents, Technology assessments, Computerized selection, Systems analyses, Design analysis, Planning, and Methodology.
