Progress in underwater robotics and acoustic communication has led to the development of the Autonomous Ocean Sampling Network (AOSN), a network of fixed moorings and/or autonomous underwater vehicles. This paper describes the GOATS 2000 (Generic Oceanographic Array Technology Systems) Joint Research Program, aimed toward the development of environmentally adaptive AOSN technology specifically directed toward rapid environmental assessment and mine counter measures in costal environments. The research program combines theory and modeling of the 3-D environmental acoustics with field experiments.
