Since 1985 the Navy has conducted focused Advanced Technology Demonstration ATD programs to introduce Low Frequency Active Acoustics LFAA technology into the Fleet to improve antisubmarine warfare ASW capability against the quiet submarine threat. The Critical Sea Test CST Project tested LFAA and related technologies at sea in CST-Magellan tests, both independently and in combination with tests sponsored by the Surveillance Towed Array Sensor System SURTASS Low Frequency Active LFA Program, the Submarine Security Program, the Air Defense initiative ADI Low Low Frequency Active LLFA Project, and Fleet Ship ASW ReadinessEffectiveness Measuring SHAREM Program and Air ASW Readiness Effectiveness Measuring AIREM Program exercises, among others. These tests were often conducted jointly with several of our Allies. Complementary environmental measurements were conducted with each test to ensure the technology transition process was complete, successful and timely.
