MAI awarded SBIR Phase I funding for the initial development of a Virtualized portable expeditionary AN/UYQ-100 USW-DSS Unit for Training

MAI was recently awarded SBIR (N231-044) for phase one work in which MAI will team with CAE to create a portable, virtualized expeditionary AN/UYQ-100 USW-DSS unit that will integrate with the Navy’s Consolidated Afloat Network Enterprise Services (CANES) while also providing a stand-alone capability for real world and training tactical scenarios. This effort pairs MAI and CAE’s ASW and ASUW expertise with CAE’s technical capabilities, which includes, modeling and simulation, gamification, virtual reality development, mixed reality development, software development, hardware development, and database management will result in a powerful tool that will enhance the Navy’s tactical decision makers ability to employ assets.
