NASC Advanced Acoustics designs and manufactures the special purpose equipment that enables our customers to conduct system performance testing of advanced ASW sensors and systems.

Research and Development

The NASC Advanced Acoustics Sector works closely with our government customers to provide extensive research and analysis of advancing underwater threats. We have been awarded numerous Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Contracts to provide next generation underwater acoustic sensors. By conducting thorough threat assessments and mission needs analysis, our engineers can develop design concepts and patterns with specific sensor types, quantity, and spacing.

NASC conducts advanced research into critical technologies and provides an unmatched depth of experience in all aspects of Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) system development. This includes the areas of acoustic performance modeling, transducer calibration, hydromechanical design, and RF electronics and signal processing. The NASC Advanced Acoustics research and engineering team provides real solutions to operational issues confronted by the fleet during ASW missions, improving the effectiveness of Naval Forces.

Nasc Aas History

History

Since 1977, NASC has supported the U.S. Navy in the detection of enemy underwater threats such as submarines, unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs), and mines. NASC began by providing highly specialized acoustics engineering and analysis support to the Naval Air Development Center (NADC) in Warminster, Pennsylvania. Our engineering staff worked with naval base researchers to develop new innovations for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW).
