Abstract:

The Advanced Environmental Acoustic Support AEAS Program is the Navys Advanced Development focus for EnvironmentalAcoustic EVA products used for system developmentdeployment and operational support. Among the more important and visible EVA products are the sound transmission models often referred to as TL or transmission loss models, which have over the past twenty years made dramatic strides not only in technical capabilities but also in credibility. Because of the popularity of the EVA models throughout the Navy, AEAS and other projects make day-to-day decisions about these models, such as which model is best for a given environment, how fast is it likely to run, what computer resources are required, what kind of accuracy is expected, who else uses the model, how does it treat the bottom, fluctuations, etc. This notebook was prepared to help transmission model users including model developers, fleet personnel, war gamers, etc. answer such questions and make informed decisions.
