Abstract:

The long-term goal of the Quantifying, Predicting and Exploiting Uncertainty DRI is to understand and exploit if possible the fundamental acoustic, oceanographic, bathymetric and geoacoustic uncertainties of the tactical naval environment, and demonstrate how they may be exploited tactically or strategically in an Exercise Area. Focussing on the seabed, our goals are to understand the fundamental tactical and strategic uncertainty of the bathymetric and geoacoustic environment, and develop methods for their representation, visualization, computation and manipulation in a manner consistent with models of sonar performance estimation and prediction.
