Who are the key experts or organizations within the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) involved in research efforts in maritime communications and surveillance defense-related research?
DSIAC was asked to identify key players in DoD research efforts in the following areas:
- Long-range (500 – 1,000 meters) acoustic messaging
- Acoustic submarine communications
- Wide-area ocean surveillance
DSIAC searched open-source documents and the Defense Technical Information Center’s repository for relevant information, which was compiled into a report for each topic and delivered to the inquirer. Key players were organized by government, academia, and industry, followed by a summary of each organization’s research.
