Contract: N68335-10-C-0118
Award Amount: $79,904.00
 

Abstract:

A novel but proven sequential estimation method called Sequential Bound Estimation will be used to simulate the accuracy with which the relative locations of drifting buoys can be obtained using only sounds from coherent sources in current and upcoming ASW multistatic systems. The geometries for locating buoys, sources, and targets will be based in part on isodiachrons and isosigmachrons. We will demonstrate significant advantages of these novel methods compared with traditional approaches.
