Abstract:

This report summarizes the Independent Research and Independent Exploratory Development program at the Naval Undersea Center for the fiscal year 1974. The program consists of a variety of projects that are considered basic to the development of undersea surveillance, ocean engineering, and advanced weapons systems. The four projects featured in this report are among the most promising in these areas. The projects featured in this report are MINOX program - the relationship between oceanic predictive correlates and sonic reverberation. Acoustic Scattering from Fish Schools and the Deep Scattering Layer - the effects of biological aggregations on acoustic systems. High-Speed Fourier Transforms - advances in signal processing techniques to improve the operation of modern communication systems. Bioacoustic Capability of Marine Mammals - the intensive study of dolphins behavior to determine if such knowledge can improve the operation of sonar systems.
