Abstract
ASSETT, Inc. proposes to develop an acoustic modeling and simulation system that will enable thorough and comprehensive testing of Navy sonar systems prior to their integration with fielded acoustic sensors and arrays. Traditionally, the complexities of accurately simulating the detail characteristics and nuances of acoustic sensors and the ocean environment have precluded providing detail stimulation for testing new sonar systems. The objective of this project is to introduce a capability that enables thorough sonar system testing prior to integration with the acoustic array. The ASSETT approach leverages existing simulation and acoustic data management system to produce a low risk system design approach. The system will produce high fidelity, realistic time series data simulating the performance of specific acoustic array types with the ability to mimic the effects of a wide range of anomalous array performance. This time series data can in turn be used to stimulate the sonar processing system in the development environment allowing the evaluation of how the system responds to both nominal array performance as well as anomalous behavior. In addition, the system will have the capability to receive information the acoustic arrays and perform testing and performance analysis of the array performance.
