SAIC developed the Bottom Loss Upgrade BLUG database, extraction software, and documentation for the AEAS program. The BLUG database is a world-wide Northern hemisphere database of acoustical and geophysical properties of ocean bottom sediments. On 1 October 1985, the beginning of Fiscal year 1985, the Navel oceanogrphic Office NAVOCEANO assumed responsibility for the maintenance and distribtuion of the BLUG database. During the period of the contract, the database was undergoing testing and evaluation for installation at Fleet Numerical Oceanographic Center at Monterey. As the developer of the BLUG data base, SAIC was tasked to support the evaluation process by supplying information about the development process, as well as to suggest techniques for improvements to the database as requirements were developed in the evaluation process. Two potential problem areas, sediment and basement reflectivity, were identified in the statement of work. Keywords Shallow water Korean Straits.
