Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS The long-term goal of this work is to better understand and model reverberation, target echo, and clutter in shallow water environments, and to develop techniques for Rapid Environmental Assessment REA and environmentally adaptive sonar. OBJECTIVES The current project is a joint collaboration between Defence Research Development Canada Atlantic DRDC Atlantic and the Applied Research Laboratory of The Pennsylvania State University ARLPSU to analyze and model reverberation, target echo, and clutter data in shallow water. It allows the Principal Investigator PI to spend approximately two months each year at ARLPSU. The collaboration leverages programs in Canada and the US, and joint research projects with the NATO Undersea Research Centre NURC. The primary effort is analysis and interpretation of data, together with development and validation of improved modeling algorithms.
