Impact of the satellite data assimilation on the naval undersea capability is investigated using the ocean hydrographic data without and with satellite data assimilation. The former is the Navy’s Global Digital Environmental Model (GDEM) providing the monthly mean; and the latter is the Modular Ocean Data Assimilation System (MODAS) proving the synoptic data. The two environmental datasets are taken as the input into the Weapon Acoustic Preset Program to determine the suggested presets for a Mk… CONTINUE READING
