Science Objectives

Background: In recent years there has been increasing interest and emphasis placed on
developing and fielding unmanned systems to support Intelligence, Surveillance and
Reconnaissance (ISR) mission areas. The Navy Strategic Plan, Defense Planning Guidance and
other Program Objective Memorandum guidance cite an urgent need to employ unmanned
systems in forward operating areas and augment Carrier/Expeditionary Strike Group and
Theater ISR assets. Systems fielded under the CNO Littoral Battlespace Sensing . Unmanned
Undersea Vehicle (UUV) program have significantly increased dimensional oceanographic
sensing capability and capacity in support of Undersea Warfare (USW); leading to significant
changes in operational TTP and UUV employment.
The Naval Oceanography Program is poised to expand its unmanned systems portfolio to
include UAV- and USV- based sensing capabilities in support of optimized sensor employment,
improved maritime forecasting, UxV platform mission planning and environmental hazard
avoidance and mitigation, and rapid hydrographic survey operations. The availability of high
resolution UxV-based METOC observations, typically in data sparse or contested areas, will
inevitably lead to significant changes in fleet TTPs.
Science Objectives: Utilize observations from unmanned air, surface, and undersea vehicles
(UxVs) to assess the impact of in-situ observations on the representation and prediction of the
Ocean Battlespace Environment and subsequent tactical impact on predictions of the
electromagnetic (EM) propagation characteristics in the coastal marine atmospheric boundary
layer.

Pre-mobilization June 25th-28th Objectives
1) Crane SkyHook (3500lbs - has four designated lift points for crane) onto Knorr in the port aft corner of the main deck
2) Setup SkyHook and test out the desired location and clearances on flight deck
3) Crane aft antenna pedestal for Directional #2 (250lbs) on the 01 deck on the port side of the trash van
4) Bolt 30"x30" pedestal mounting plate to the 01 deck beside the trash van and attach antenna pedestal to the mounting plate
5) Setup AIS transmitter and simulate UAV GPS position transmissions to verify Knorr AIS display picks it up.
6) Bolt forward antenna pedestal for Directional #1 (no crane required) to the short ~3-4ft tall post already on Knorr in the forward starboard corner of the 02 deck. (Need those four holes (2 3/4" square pattern) on top of that post drilled and tapped to 1" depth for 1/2"-13 bolts)
7) Attach forward Omni #1 antenna to the starboard side of the foremast on the forward 02 deck (No crane required, but I'd have to go up. We have climbing harnesses that we've used before for shipboard installations)
8) Attach Omni #2 antenna to the port side of the forward railing on the 04 deck. (No crane required)
