2 2  Swimmers or divers using available technology pose a serious asymmetrical threat to maritime assets  The ability to detect, classify, locate, and engage a hostile threat is required  Current engagement options are limited and do not provide a scalable engagement capability Challenge: To Protect High Value Maritime Assets From Underwater Terrorist Threats

3 3 Summary report on the bio-effects of low frequency water borne sound by Edward Cudahy, Eric Hanson, and David Fothergill (20 March 1999) reports that pulsed continuous wave (CW) signals produce the following bio-effects: Acoustic Bio-Effects Background  Non-lethal swimmer neutralization study Non-Lethal Swimmer Neutralization Study with Space and Naval Warfare Command (SPAWAR TD 3138, May 2002) Acoustic systems offer the best option to provide a scalable engagement capability Pressure (dB)Reported Bio-Effect (NSMRL) 100Sound detected 130Vibration detected on some part of the body 157Somewhat severe to severe aversion 180-185Physical damage to organs and soft tissues

4 4 Acoustic Properties of the DIS Operate Across The Range of Frequencies Causing Adverse Effects on Divers Effective DIS Operating Range

5 5 Notes1.This is the peak pressure measured at Dodge Pond for a 10 cu in air gun with 2,400 psi supply pressure 2.Assumes a 20*Log r spreading loss 3.Assumes a 20*Log n array gain and 20*Log r spreading loss Potential Bio-Effect Range From Air Guns Every Environment is Different # of 10 inch 3 Air Guns DischargedRange (yd/M)Peak Pressure (dB) Single60/55190 (Note 1) Single600/550170 (Note 2) Five (Simultaneous)600/550184 (Note 3) Five (Simultaneous)1200/1100178 (Note 3) Ten (Simultaneous)600/550190 (Note 3) Ten (Simultaneous)1200/1100184 (Note 3) Air gun arrays can be fired in sequence separated by msec or seconds, all at once or just particular guns  Firing all guns at once is the equivalent of adding the inch 3 of all the guns together  The firing of an air gun array in sequence provides a “longer punch” verses a “single punch”

6 6 Anti-Swimmer System Acoustic Impulse Testing March 2004 – USCG completed acoustic baseline tests at NUWC (Naval Undersea Warfare Center) Dodge Pond facility April 2004 – NFESC (Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center) processed raw acoustic data 2004 - NSMRL (Navy Submarine Medical Research) prepared Human Effects test plan 2004 To 2008 – USCG & Laboratory NSMRL Tested IAS (integrated anti swimmer) Human Effects at NUWC Dodge Pond facility using the HAI DIS 2005 To 2007 – USCG & NUWC Conducted IAS Demonstration Tests at NUWC Pier One facility using the HAI DIS – Data fed into MSST (Maritime Safety & Security Team decision and testing)

7 7 Shallow water environment at the US Navy Dodge Pond testing facility is similar to that in ports and harbors where high value assets are exposed to terrorist swimmer threats Variable air gun and receiver depths allowed evaluation of the effects of multiple surface and bottom reflections HAI Characterization of Air Gun Performance in the Shallow Water NUWC Facility at Dodge Pond

9 9 Predicted Performance of 10 Cubic Inch Air Guns The predicted data shown are for selected air guns in a 4 by 5 array Of 10 cu. In. Air Guns operated with a system pressure of 3,000 psi. With precise control of the Air Gun discharge using the HAI air gun controller, the far field pressure from multiple air guns in an array will add coherently or as 20*Log (N-guns) This phenomenon has been demonstrated in Seneca Lake calibration tests Controlling the number of air guns discharged simultaneously provides control of the peak pressure and spectrum levels thereby allowing a scalable influence on swimmer threat The single pulse shown here can be repeated to generate a multiple pulse wave train with a pulse repetition rate as fast as one pulse per second.
