Abstract:

The role of the U. S. Navy as a credible world sea power is placing increasing demands on sonar systems development for ASW. The management of the Navys Ocean Environmental Acoustic Program EVA is of great concern because of the critical nature of this support service to systems development. At present, sonar developers and operators do not have sufficient EVA data and models available for optimum systems design and use. The deficiency is primarily due to a technological gap between EVA program outputs and the system developers requirements. The most effective and efficient management and implementation of the EVA program is therefore required. A detailed plan for a program management structure in NAVSEA Sonar Technology Division is presented it calls for the establishment of a technical group assigned the responsibility for developing and maintaining a working relationship between environmental acousticians and systems developers.
