Abstract
A novel yet mature technique will be used to assimilate coherent-source multistatic ASW data obtained from drifting acoustic sources and receivers. We will demonstrate the technique's ability to correctly estimate the locations of drifting buoys from acoustic data only even when the buoys may drift significant distances during a mission.
