Pagination or Media Count:
This Technical Note considers some technical and practical aspects of an exploratory development program to apply STARLITE Space-Time Analysis for Recognition of Line Target Echoes active classification techniques for PAIR SQQ-23 and to sonobuoys delivered by helicopter, VSVP aircraft or by gun or rocket from a surface ship. To provide NAVSHIPS OOV1C5 and OOV1B an estimate of the dimensions of an overall program, Work Breakdown Structures WBS and a listing of immediate tasks for the two programs are included. The feasibility of STARLITE, either technically or operationally, has not been proven, nor has any prototype, real-time processor been built and tested. Any eventual development program should be preceded by technical and operational feasibility studies. Appendices B and C present preliminary technical and operational considerations of a STARLITEPAIR system. Appendices D and E give background on some present sonobuoy system developments to which STARLITE might be applicable. Appendix A is a condensed description of STARLITE technique.
