Abstract:

Research is presented on the detection of a single target in an isotropic noise field. In each case studied, the data source was assumed to be a given array of omnidirectional hydrophones, but many different schemes for processing the various hydrophone outputs were considered. The problems investigated involved comparison of optimum detectors with standard detectors and comparison of detectors operating on clipped and unclipped hydrophone data, or, more generally, hydrophone data that have been operated upon by an arbitrary non-linear device. The results of these comparisons are described in detail.
