Abstract:

Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance ISR is a key mission area for todays military applications. While this involves all types of platforms on land, air, and sea, the emerging capabilities of Unmanned Underwater Vehicles UUVs provide a new dimension to ISR operations. In the recently completed Navy UUV Master Plan, ISR was the number one ranked capability for future UUV development. On-going efforts at the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center SSC San Diego combine expertise in both ISR and UUV systems to meet these emerging requirements. The technologies and systems involved in implementing these missions are discussed, emphasizing developments in sensors, communications and system autonomy.
