Abstract:

This report provides a summary of acoustic synthesizers that are either integral parts of ASW training devices, or function as research tools to create target spectra information. Questionnaires were submitted to users and designers of passive sonar acoustic synthesizers. The forms were returned to the Naval Training Equipment Center and then organized into the form of a Device Comparison Chart, Table 1. The table is designed to provide information in the way of specification data so that comparisons and evaluations of these synthesizers may be in related studies. The results showed many basic similarities for the acoustic synthesizers, e.g., multiple target presentation, variable target types, ocean modeling and spectrum control. A recommendation is made to investigate the possibility of developing an acoustic synthesizer that would be adaptable for all passive sonar training.
