Default Bastion Gambit

Ahoy shipmates!

Question on Bastion Gambit. I figured early on we had a Delta IV and Grisha Escort coming out of the barn. I've set myself up on a parallel course to the delta, scootin along at 3 kts and tracking the boomer on the conformal and towed. I got a curious thing happening though.

Occasionally the boomer will suddenly disappear. Its a complete step change (full signal then suddenly none). One second there, next they are not. Also strange is that when they disappear on the towed I can still see it (the boomer) on the conformal. I've already checked and they are not anywhere near the towed array baffle.

Does anyone have any idea what might be happening? Is it surfacing? Going dead stop in the water periodically?
