Abstract:

To understand the hydrodynamic mechanisms which facilitate the remote sensing of ship generated disturbances, experimental measurements are required which correlate the hydrodynamic properties of the flow field with the electromagnetic properties of the sensing field. To make the measurements, specialized facilities have been under development. This research effort has concentrated on the development of new, and accurate high-speed instrumentation which measures tangential velocities, displacements, and slopes of the water surface. The goal is to compare these observations through benchmark hydrodynamic studies with simultaneous radar scatterometer measurements. This data set will allow spatial andor temporal correlations of the hydrodynamic surface, with the radar and infrared signatures.
