Abstract:

UNITES is a unique, interdisciplinary team with expertise spanning the environment physical oceanography and bottom geology, ocean acoustics propagation, ambient noise, reverberation and signal processing, and tactical sonar systems. The overall goals of the research are to enhance the understanding of the uncertainty in the ocean environment including the sea bottom, characterize its impact on sonar system performance, and provide the Navy with guidance for understanding sonar system performance in the littoral ocean. The Harvard work is ongoing within the context of this overall program.
