The long term goal of this project is to demonstrate the efficacy of a swimmer deterrent system that focuses high intensity, low frequency sound at a sector of a harbor containing a swimmer. The system integrates swimmer location data from high frequency sonar detectors with control templates to drive a multiplicity of sound sources. Focusing is achieved by driving each of the sound sources with optimal magnitude and phase based on measured transfer functions between source and harbor sectors. These measurements are obtained from the acoustic calibration of the harbor.
