LSV and AESD models on Lake Pend Oreille

Our people and facilities represent the Navy and the nation's capability to develop technologies and methodologies to reduce ship (including surface ship, submarine, unmanned vehicle, and craft) signatures. Silencing products are the development of silencing requirements, silencing technology, materials, equipment and systems necessary to ensure that all Navy ships have the lowest possible acoustic, radar, infrared, electro-optical and magnetic signatures that are cost effective and compatible with the ship's mission. In their application, the products reduce the signature(s) at its source, reduce the signature(s) before it is radiated, and/or impede the return of threat sensor energy to its source.

Major Functions:

  • Structural Acoustics, vibrations, airborne noise, and target strength of ships and machinery
  • Hydroacoustics of hull, turbomachinery, propulsor and flow control devices
  • Signature mitigation materials sciences
  • Active and passive acoustic signature measurement and diagnostic technologies
  • Data acquisition, processing, and imaging systems
  • Ship signature control integrated design
  • Development of electromagnetic signature theory and analysis
  • Infrared scale modeling and scaling
  • Infrared signature measurement & diagnostic technologies; data acquisition, processing and imaging systems
  • Electromagnetic signature measurement & diagnostic technologies; data acquisition, processing and imaging systems
  • Radar cross section measurement & diagnostic technologies; data acquisition, processing and imaging systems
  • Ship signature control integrated design
