Abstract:

A set of Guidelines for Research and Development has been prepared based upon the papers and discussions at the Acoustic Fluctuation Workshop held at NRL and subsequent panel deliberations. Included is a background on acoustic fluctuations research and the considerations in structuring a program in ocean acoustic fluctuation. Specific tasks are itemized, beginning with the use of highest priority to formulate a potentially complete model of SNR. This is followed by those relevant to terms in the sonar equation, namely, source level, transmission loss, signal gain, beam noise and some in Signal Processing and SNR. For reference, an Appendix contains editorial summaries of synopses of papers presented at the Workshop.
