Abstract:

Due to the statistical nature of the active sonar detection and classification problem, the development of signal processing techniques for detection and classification requires an extensive data base for performance prediction. A host of restrictions make at-sea collection of the of the necessary data base a virtual impossibility. It is, therefore necessary to simulate most or all of the required data base. The logical first step in the development of an active sonar echo simulation algorithm is to develop an acoustic target model. This note documents a two-dimensional acoustic target model developed by NUC, Code 606. The actual echo simulation algorithm will be documented at a later date as an NUC TN.
