      In FY07 the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport Rhode Island began the development of 2 major undersea tracking range replacements programs. The first program is called the Southern California ASW Range (SOAR) Refurbishment (SOAR-R) and the second program is called the Barking Sands Undersea Range Expansion (BSURE) Refurbishment (BSURE-R). These ranges will be located off the coast of San Clemente Island, California and Kauai, Hawaii respectively. The in-water instrumentation of the undersea tracking range is a series acoustic receive and transmit sensors nodes that are interconnected electrically and optically through a cable. These sensors make up arrays. A wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) telemetry schema is being developed for these arrays.
