Abstract


The System Integration of Mini Mobile Target Torpedo (MMTT) paper presents a comprehensive study on the design and development of an innovative Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) known as the Mini Mobile Target Torpedo. The MMTT system aims to replicate the acoustic and physical signatures of submarines, serving as a realistic target for anti-submarine warfare training and validation of detection and engagement systems.

This paper focuses on the system integration aspects of the MMTT, covering key elements such as the vehicle's mechanical, electrical, and software components. The mechanical design encompasses the structural framework, hydrodynamic shaping, and propulsion system, which enables efficient maneuverability and precise control. The electrical system incorporates power management, sensor interfacing, and communication interfaces for real-time data transmission.

The MMTT's software architecture is analyzed in detail, emphasizing the integration of navigation algorithms, autonomous behavior, and mission planning capabilities. The paper highlights the importance of robust communication protocols and control systems to ensure seamless coordination between the MMTT and the operator or autonomous control center.

Furthermore, the integration of sensors for target emulation, including acoustic signature generators and sonar reflection modules, is explored. This aspect ensures that the MMTT exhibits accurate and realistic characteristics to enhance training scenarios and effectively test the performance of sonar systems and underwater sensors.

The implementation and testing of the MMTT system integration are presented, including validation experiments performed in controlled environments and open water trials. The results demonstrate the successful integration of the various subsystems, showcasing the MMTT's capabilities as an effective target for anti-submarine warfare training exercises.

In conclusion, this paper provides valuable insights into the system integration process of the Mini Mobile Target Torpedo. The presented design and development approach, coupled with the comprehensive analysis of subsystem integration and testing, contribute to the advancement of UUV technology and enhance the effectiveness of anti-submarine warfare training and evaluation.
