Back Validation, Verification and Exploitation of Ocean Model Numerical Guidance for ASW Decision Support

The Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO) Reach Back Cell (RBC) is ramping up its support to ASW operations by developing new ocean model areas, in more areas and at higher resolution than ever before. The RBC is also applying the numerical model output in new ways to support ASW planning decisions. Output is being used to produce not only predictions of ocean conditions, but time-evolving, 3-D, threat-specific maps identifying areas where detection probability is relatively high (or low), and areas where dynamically changing ocean conditions can be exploited to provide an asymmetric advantage to our sensors. The new model areas and the Reach Back Cell support are major developments in both technology and CONOPS.
There is an urgent need for validation and verification of these new model areas and products as they are being brought on line over the next 1-2 years. A full understanding of the uncertainties-the variability of the ocean environment, and the predictive system's ability to portray that variability-is needed in order to make operational plans that hinge on these predictions.
