Abstract
SOFTWARE SHALL BE DEVELOPED FOR THE SUN 4 THAT ALLOWS INTERACTIVE EVALUATION OF SONAR SYSTEM LINEUPS AND SEARCH PLANS OVER A LARGE GEOGRAPHIC AREA OF INTEREST. THE BASIS FOR THIS EVALUATION WILL BE THE DEPTH COMBINATIONS AND TARGET FREQUENCIES (MATRIX) FOR MULTIPLECEIVER LOCATIONS WITHIN THE GEOGRAPHIC AREA OF INTEREST. THE LARGE NUMBER OF INDEPENDENT CALCULATIONS WILL REQUIRE THAT AN ARRAY PROCESSOR BE APPLIED TO THE TASK. ONCE THE PROPLOSS DATA HAS BEEN GENERATED AND LOCATION. LIKEWISE, A SPECIFIC SENSOR AND THREAT CAN BE IDENTIFIED, AND A SEARCH PLAN CAN BE COMPUTED BASED ON THE UNIQUE ENVIRONMENTAL, SENSOR, AND THREAT CHARACTERISTICS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS LOCATION. THIS AREA-WIDE SEARCH PLAN INFORMATION CAN BE APPLIED TO THE TASK OF ALLOCATING SEARCH RESOURCES OVER A LARGE AREA. ONE INDICATOR OF PERFORMANCE HOMOGENEITY IN THE AREA WOULD BE THE REGIONAL VARIABILITY IN SEARCH PLAN PERFORMANCE MEASURES FOR A SPECIFIC SENSOR. IT IS LOGICAL THAT A PLATFORM BE ASSIGNED TO SEARCH A REGION IN WHICH MINIMAL CHANGES TO THE SEARCH PLAN ARE REQUIRED. THIS INFORMATION IS OBTAINABLE FROM THE DATA DESCRIBED ABOVE.
