Abstract:

The coverage and timeliness of environmental data is improving significantly. New analytical acoustical models offer increased resolution and greater accuracy. PC computing platforms are orders of magnitude faster. There is a need to turn a moderately slow environment assessment into a rapid environment assessment. Given near-complete environmental data and faster more accurate models. DERA recently posed the question of how can these capabilities be harnessed to improve the performance of ASW sonar operations and tactical decision making. How would this environmental data be displayed Visualization is one tool that can be beneficial in presenting and exploiting the environmental picture.
