Abstract:

The long-term goals of this work are to develop a modeling tool that can be used in the design of an AUV to estimate the noise signature given a set of operating conditions. The same tool can be used to include noise mitigation procedures in the design, if the estimated signature does not satisfy some predefined set conditions. It is the intention of this work that the modeling tool developed would be directly integrated into engineering design tools. This will minimize the need of input from the engineering designer of the AUV.
