Abstract : The Small Boat Deployment System (SBDS) was developed for the Mobile Inshore Underwater Warfare System Upgrade (MlUW-SU) program to deploy and recover two acoustic arrays and 8-km (4.3 nm) of fiber optic/electrical trunk cable from a 6.7 m (22-ft) Boston Whaler outboard motor boat. The arrays are part of a transportable surveillance system for guarding near shore assets that integrates visual, thermal, radar, EMS and acoustic data.
