Abstract
As a company experienced in passive acoustic sensor and signal processing design and development, Analysis, Design & Diagnostics, Inc. (AD & D) understands that the ability to detect and classify sea-born vessels with a very high Probability of Correct Classification (Pcc) and a very low Probability of False Classification (Pfc) is an extremely challenging undertaking. The primary method currently used by AD & D is to employ optimal detectors designed to exploit traditional narrowband, broadband and active acoustic emissions from targets of interest. We recognize, however, that there is enormous potential in novel classification algorithms developed in other fields such as computational neuroscience, one of which is Cortical Processing. Under this SBIR we will investigate the feasibility of using Cortical Processing to classify sea-born vessels to a Taxon level.
