Abstract
The Distributed Undersea Sensor Network (DUSN) is a component of the Force ASW project. DUSN consists of research directed toward the implementation of autonomous UW networked ASW sensors. Included in the project is an international agreement with Norway and Sweden, which is also called DUSN. The DUSN project is attempting to create useful sized networks of ASW sensors and therefore DRDC is building a dozen DUSN nodes. These nodes, when combined with nodes from the other countries, will form a network that is just large enough to begin to demonstrate network issues; both positive and negative influences on performance. These nodes have UW acoustic communications, on-board detection and processing, and will allow for the development of UW network protocols and signal processing algorithms. The first Canadian prototype DUSN node is nearing completion and must under-go a series of engineering tests before full investment in the remaining eleven units is undertaken. This Bedford Basin Barge Trial is intended as the first engineering trial for the prototype sensor node.
