Research Institution
Multistatic operation of Navy sonar systems can potentially improve overall ASW effectiveness despite significant improvements in the capabilities of potential submarine adversaries. As enemy submarines become quieter and more capable, utilization of active sonar techniques becomes necessary to maintain tactically effective ASW ranges for detection, classification, and localization. Active sonar operation in shallow water environments is in turn complicated by the severe clutter that is encountered. Multistatic operation enables Navy forces to take full advantage of active sonar capabilities and to improve decluttering performance while allowing critical assets to remain acoustically covert. Multistatic capabilities for all viable combinations of U.S. Navy sonar systems eventually need to be developed.
