BAE Systems has won a $4.6 million contract from US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to enable submarines to detect other submerged vessels at greater distances, while minimizing the risk of counter-detection.
The contract was awarded for its Mobile Offboard Clandestine Communications and Approach (MOCCA) program, the company announced Tuesday.
“Advances in maritime technology are critical to the Department of Defense and an area where the US military can continue to strengthen its advantage,” said Geoff Edelson, director of Maritime Systems and Technology at BAE Systems.
“With the resurgence of near-peer competitors and an increasing number of submarines, MOCCA technology will provide Navy submariners with a vital asymmetrical advantage against a rapidly proliferating undersea threat.” Edelson added.
To meet the MOCCA program’s ambitious Phase 1 goals, BAE Systems’ researchers will design efficient sonar capabilities to maximize detection range and improve target identification and tracking.
The MOCCA program demonstrates BAE Systems’ strength in innovation and its capability to design technologies for future combat scenarios.
The research and development team at BAE Systems regularly works closely with DARPA and other defense research institutes to create and deliver capabilities that improve the competitive advantages of the U.S. armed forces.
