Abstract:

To understand and predict key properties of the signal intensity vector field in forward propagation with emphasis on mid-frequency, shallow water propagation. Because of enabling technologies involving MEMS and bio-inspired transduction, tomorrow s navy will depend on and utilize acoustic vector field properties velocity, acceleration, intensity much more than today s. Advancement in Navy relevant capabilities will be in part realized through a better understanding of the environmental and acquisition geometry dependence source depth, range, etc. of the vector field in a shallow water environment.
