Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO DETERMINING THE PROPAGATION PATH OF ACOUSTIC DATA RECEIVED BY A THIN LINE TOWED ARRAY. WE MAKE USE OF THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN SEAFLOOR ACOUSTIC MODELING CAPABILITY AS WELL AS EMPLOYING THE EMERGING AND POWERFUL TECHNIQUES ASSOCIATED WITH ARTIFICAL NEURAL NETWORKS. THE PROPOSED NEURAL NETWORKS WILL BE DESIGNED TO IDENTIFY THE PATH OF PROPAGATION FROM AN ARBITRARY RECEIVED SIGNAL BASED ON TRAINING FROM AN ACOUSTIC PROPAGATION MODEL. THE FEASIBILITY OF EMPLOYING NEURAL NETWORKS FOR PATH DISCRIMINATION IN DIVERSE DEEP-WATER ENVIRONMENTS WILL BE DETERMINE USING SYNTHETIC DATA.
