The fundamental problems associated with environmental 1 variability and sonar were explored at a previous SACLANTCEN conference in These problems have not gone away but, on the one hand are exaggerated by the move to the littoral and on the other hand, are open to treatrnent in new ways that advances in technology and computer power allow.

Pace, Nicholas G and Jensen, Finn B. eds., Kluwer Academic Publishers (). Realistic sonar performance predictions are served by understanding the causes of temporal and spatial fluctuations in the environment [ ].

The summer shelfbreak PRIMER exercise [ ] provided a high resolution environmental acoustics data set that we use to study the temporal variability of noise and acoustic transrnissions. The prediction of sonar performance using a probability density function (PDF) based on environmental variability is presented.

The PDF describes the distribution of the predictive capability of an acoustic model with respect to measurements of actual performance and, therefore, represents the uncertainty in one’s ability to model the actual. environmental variability Figure 1 illustrates conceptually sonar performance prediction, and how environmental uncertainty is incorporated into what we call “predictive probability of detection”, or PPD.

Impact of littoral environmental variability on acoustic predictions and sonar performance This book and the enclosed CD-ROM are the proceedings of a conference organised by the SACLANT Undersea Research Centre, and held at the Villa Marigola, Lerici, Italy, on September The fundamental problems associated with environmental.

The littoral environment can be highly variable on multiple scales in space and time, and sonar performance can be affected by these inherent variabilities.

The effects of environmental variability on acoustic propagation and sonar performance in shallow water has received much attention in recent literature. Of particular interest is the influence of water column variability on acoustic propagation and the subsequent effects on geoacoustic inversion.

In this paper, a modal-based inversion method is considered with the inclusion of internal waves. Peter C. Chu, Carlos J. Cintron, Steven D. Haeger, David Schneider, Ruth E. Keenan, Daniel N.

Appears in 6 books from Less. 1. Introduction. The sea surface parameters change drastically from the poles to the equator (), which has a significant impact on underwater acoustics and the ambient noise in the region (Ainsley,Nicholas et al., ).Ambient noise variability due to spatiotemporal variations of sea surface parameter is a challenge for ensuring optimum performance of underwater systems at the.A number of environmental parameters can have strong impacts on mine warfare operations.

These factors, discussed below, can affect operations directly, as with the influence of currents on diver operations and sediment transport, or they can influence sensor performance, as is the case for water column and seafloor acoustic properties.
