Abstract:

The study described in this report was conducted for the purpose of improving our submarine target-strength prediction model. In the study computer programs were expanded to treat a greater variety of elementary shapes such as cones and hemispheres in order that hull forms can be represented more realistically. Additionally the relationship of surface reflections of pulses to jitter parameters was assessed for the purpose of gaining some physical insight in the echo forming process.
