We thank all those people responsible for the development of NAVDAS-AR, in particular, we thank the late Roger Daley who first formulated and initiated the development of NAVDAS-AR. We would also like to thank Liang Xu who was the PI of the project that ultimately led to the transition of NAVDAS-AR into operations. Boon Chua, Tim Hogan, Ben Ruston, James Goerss, and Pat Pauley also made major contributions to NAVDAS-AR. This research was started while D. D. Kuhl held a National Research Council Research postdoctoral fellowship at the Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, D. C., and continued during his NRL Jerome Karl Fellowship award. T. Rosmond acknowledges support from PMW-120 under Program Element 0603207N. C. H. Bishop acknowledges support from Office of Naval Research base funding via Program Element 0601153N, Task BE033-03-45, and NOPP funding via Program Element 0602435N. NAVDAS-AR was originally developed with ONR and PMW-120 funding under NRL base Program Elements 0601153N and 0602435N.
