The Defence Science Institute reports that Defence is seeking expressions of interest from Australian universities, research organisations and industry to join a community advisory group to help guide and shape research in the area of remote undersea surveillance.
Closing date for submissions is 12 November 2021.
The advisory group will assist with the ongoing development, implementation and quality assurance of the research and innovation activities under the Remote Undersea Surveillance STaR Shot, a large-scale, multi-disciplinary, long-term program of research aimed at securing Australia’s maritime interests through persistent and responsive undersea situation awareness.
It is expected that members of the advisory group will have strong capabilities and existing research programs that could support innovation efforts in one or more of the following areas:
- Underwater environmental sensing, modelling and forecasting
- Acoustic sensing and propagation
- Active and passive optical sensors for submerged objects
- Automated data processing for object detection and recognition
- Dynamic and robust sensor networks
A diverse range of partners will be needed to cover the scope of the research program.
Advisory group members will contribute to the design of the program, the generation of white papers, and the development, quality assurance and evaluation of complementary programs and activities.
