Pagination or Media Count:
Our long-term objectives are to provide a fundamental understanding of high-frequency acoustic-bottom interactions sufficient to predict acoustic scattering from the seafloor, penetration of acoustic energy into the seafloor, and propagation of acoustic energy within the seafloor. These acoustic models support performance prediction and tactical use of MCM sonar including buried mine detection by Synthetic Aperture Sonar SAS, and also support shallow water ASW sonar systems.
