Abstract

This effort will establish the baseline design of an advanced sonar simulator/stimulator suite for current and future systems with fidelity comparable with recorded at-sea data. This effort will bring together existing simulator designs with design changes or extensions to provide high fidelity simulation data for system certification and algorithm development while maintaining applicability to training systems. In the long term, a common simulator/stimulator suite will deliver cost savings among the user communities. For example, a change made by an algorithm development group to improve fidelity would benefit a user from the training community by showing him a more realistic training scenario.
