Abstract:

The goals of this team effort are to develop, demonstrate and transition the probabilistic method for characterizing and quantifying environmental acoustic uncertainty to the fleet. Also, adaptive sampling strategies for the reduction of uncertainty in fleet ocean and acoustic models will be developed and advanced data assimilation methods will be applied. The NPS portion of this effort is focused on development of algorithms, methodology, software and interfaces for the Naval Oceanographic Office to use adaptive sampling to improve predictions for anti-submarine warfare ASW. The objectives of this research are to i apply uncertainty analyses to APB Advanced Processor Build data sets with sonar operation detection calls ii work with CNMOC and NAVO to transition the algorithms, method and archive appropriate data sets into operational systems in order to reduce uncertainty in fleet ocean surveys, and iii develop adaptive sampling tools and strategies based on data assimilation methods to reduce uncertainty in fleet ocean and acoustic models.
