Abstract:

The Long Range Acoustic Propagation Project LRAPP includes within its charter the requirement to provide acoustic predictions in support of design concept formulation, system development and operational aspects of passive sonar surveillance systems. In meeting this responsibility, LRAPP has initiated a program including a series of environmental acoustic experiments to be conducted in the Atlantic Ocean and adjacent waters during FY 72 and FY 73. These experiments are intended to furnish information which is urgently needed for the engineering support of existing ASW system developments. Specific recommendations are presented for 1 the improvement of the exercise planning 2 identification of equipment and data collection problems and solutions therefore 3 an assessment of the data analysis to be conducted at the conclusion of the exercise and 4 a program leading to the generation of a data package in support of development programs for surveillance systems.
