Research Institution
Over the last decade developments in ASW sensor systems has greatly increased the number and quality of the sensor systems deployed thus increasing the volume of data to be assessed by orders of magnitude. Sonobuoys as acoustic sensors provide the unique quality of being an in-situ sensor in remote environments. Processing of sonobuoy data also presents unique challenges not encountered on more advanced sensors, and this processing has proven resistant to automation. This notwithstanding, the tactical need for remote sensors such as sonobuoys has only grown. New approaches are needed which address the core issues which throttle process automation. The techniques listed in this proposal addresses fundamental issues which have long limited progress in automation of sonobuoy data processing.
