Advanced Acoustic Concepts, in collaboration with industry partners, participated in the U.S. Navy’s Advanced Naval Technology Exercise (ANTX) last month in Newport, Rhode Island. AAC participated in two exercises to highlight how AAC’s cutting edge technology can provide significant value to accomplishing undersea warfare. The first exercise demonstrated how AAC’s MobileC3 (Mc3) solution, currently fielded as the operational LCS Mission Package Mobile Control Station (MPMCS), provides the latest technology in a seamlessly integrated, open architecture, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) system providing flexible support of any UxV control interface. The second exercise, executed in collaboration with Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII), demonstrated a single-sortie detect-to-engage capability for ‘Seabed Warfare in Denied Waters’. This capability was largely possible by the situational awareness provided by AAC’s SAMDIS imaging sonar and the engagement provided by AAC’s ANGLER underwater weapon system. Descriptions of the exercises can be found within the US Navy’s “Playbill” found at the ANTX Website:
