Abstract:

The long term goal of the project is to enhance our ability to detect submerged objects using acoustics. We aim to use our knowledge of the irregular spatial and time structure of sound in the ocean in order to improve the design of sonar apparatus and the way in which it is employed in operational situations. The work will apply to passive sonar when the submerged object is a sound source. It will also apply to active sonar when the submerged object is silent.
