Abstract LONG TERM GOALS: Improve accuracy, fidelity, and speed of reverberation models for modeling, simulation, training and sonar system performance predictions. OBJECTIVES: The objective is to achieve more efficient transitions from the 6.1 basic research community to the applied modeling community. APPROACH: The approach is to: (1) develop enhanced understanding of 6.2/6.3 needs within the 6.1 community (emphasis on physics rather than signal processing); (2) develop long-term interactions between 6.2/6.3 and 6.1 researchers (addressing current/future Navy needs through FNC or alternate paths) and (3) identify topics that require long-term 6.1 basic research. WORK COMPLETED: The PI worked closely with Tony Eller (ASPM reverberation modeler) to identify physics upgrades that would improve speed and/or fidelity. The PI had close association with the HIFAST program, via two formal review meetings and recommendations to Mike Vaccarro (ONR program manager of HIFAST program) for reverberamation modeling improvements. The PI also interacted with the air community (Carrie Root) about specific recommendations for reverberation modeling speed and fidelity improvements. The PI provided guidance on several occasions to a software support engineer (John Pinezich, Advanced Acosutic Concepts) developing the air community simulation system, CASE. The PI also continued collaborative modeling with the two operational model leads, Tony Eller (ASPM) and Ruth Keenan (CASS).
