Training Session: ATI Sonar Systems Design

June 2, 2015 - June 4, 2015 Newport, RI



This 3-day course provides an overview of sonar systems design and highlights how sonar principles are employed in low frequency (LF), mid frequency (MF) and high frequency (HF) sonar applications. The course provides a solid understanding of the sonar equation and discusses in-depth propagation loss, target strength, reverberation, array gain, and detection of signals and their application to practical systems. Physical insight and typical results are provided to help understand each term of the sonar equation individually. The instructors then show how the sonar equation can be used to predict the performance of passive and active sonar systems. The course also reviews applications of passive and active sonar for ASW, including bistatics, for monitoring marine mammals and for high frequency detection, localization and imaging. The course is valuable to engineers and scientists who are entering the field or as a review for employees who want a system level overview. A comprehensive set of notes and the textbook Principles of Underwater Sound will be provided to all attendees. Students will also receive analysis tools that they can use to quickly assess systems performance in the ocean environment.

Conference: UDT 2015

June 3, 2015 - June 5, 2015 Rotterdam, Netherlands

UDT is the most comprehensive and interactive conference in its field. Held 3 - 5 June 2015 in Rotterdam, Netherlands, it is designed to bring together delegates, senior naval officials and R&D Departments to discuss current and future operational needs and move forward their undersea defence and security strategies. In particular, this year's discussions will focus on the overall conference theme.

The overall theme for the UDT 2015 conference of 'Underwater Capability for an Uncertain Future' has been specifically chosen to reflect the global response to a change in scale and tempo in challenges in the underwater domain.
