Abstract:

Despite significant advances in acoustic processing and data display techniques, passive sonar classification still involves a significant amount of human effort. Sonalysts, Inc. proposes to develop an automated passive target signature fusion rule base. Relying on our unequaled expertise in passive and active sonar classification, as well as surface and air undersea warfare (USW) operations, modeling, and simulation, our innovative technical approach will focus on the development of a set of deterministic and heuristic rules that represents the passive sonar classification process. We will then describe how to automate these deterministic and heuristic rules using a parallel rule processing technique. Finally, we intend to demonstrate the feasibility of this approach using data generated by a best-in-class commercial personal computer-based naval combat simulation that provides a challenging, detailed, and realistic simulation of an USW tactical environment.
