Adaptive signal processing work at the Naval Ocean Systems Center NOSC dates back to the late 1960s. It began as an IRIED project by John McCool, who made use of an adaptive algorithm that had been developed by Professor Bernard Widrow of Stanford University. In 1972, a team lead by McCool built the first hardware implementation of the algorithm that could process in real-time at acoustic bandwidths. Early tests with the two units that were built were extremely successful, and attracted much attention. Sponsors from different commands provided funding to develop hardware for submarine, surface ship, airborne, and other systems. In addition, an effort was initiated to analyze performance and behavior of the algorithm. Most of the hardware development and analysis efforts were active through the 1970s, and a few into the 1980s. One of the original programs continues to this date.
