Abstract:

This study evaluates the character and extent of the long range classification problem. It was decided to investigate first the BB mode of propagation, reserving the CZ mode for future work. An investigation has shown that schools of fish are probable sources of false contacts for sonars operating with a CW pulse in the BB mode.
