60 MTR March 2007 in the sea into mathematical formulas solvable by computers. This course provides a comprehensive treatment of all types of underwater acoustic models including environmental, propagation, noise, reverberation and sonar performance models. Specific examples of each type of model are discussed to illustrate model formula- tions, assumptions and algorithm efficiency. Students will receive a copy of Underwater Acoustic Modeling and Simulation by Paul C. Etter. ter_acoustics_modeling.htm

Sonar Principles &

ASW Analysis

This course provides an excellent introduction to underwater sound and highlights how sonar principles are employed in ASW analyses. The course provides a solid understanding of the sonar equation and discusses in-depth propagation loss, target strength, reverberation, arrays, array gain, and detection of signals. ciples_asw_analysis.htm

Mechanics of

Underwater Noise

The course describes the essential mechanisms of underwater noise as it relates to ship/submarine silencing applications. The fundamental prin- ciples of noise sources, water-borne and structure-borne noise propaga- tion, and noise control methodolo- gies are explained. Illustrative exam- ples will be presented. The course will be geared to those desiring a basic understanding of underwater noise and ship/submarine silencing with necessary mathematics presented as gently as possible. A full set of notes will be given to participants as well as a copy of the text, Mechanics of

Underwater Noise, by Donald Ross. ics_underwater_noise.htm

International ROV


The Marine Advanced Technology

Education (MATE) Center and the

Marine Technology Society's (MTS)

Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV)

Committee are issuing an icy chal- lenge to students interested in under- water technology. Next June, the annual international ROV competi- tion, sponsored and organized by the

MATE Center and the MTS ROV

Committee and supported by the

National Science Foundation (NSF), will focus on the earth's Polar

Regions. The competition will be held in the Canadian province of

Underwater Acoustic


Technologies and Results

Like the successful 1st international conference on Underwater Acoustic

Measurements: Technologies and

Results, held in June/July 2005, the 2nd international conference will focus on underwater acoustic meas- urements, the applied technologies and the results obtained. As many theoretical and computational predic- tions are available in the field of underwater acoustics, and as several important experimental studies rang- ing from model scale tests in labora- tories to full scale tests at sea have been performed over the past or are planned to take place in the near future, it is timely again to review the whole field of underwater acoustic measurements.
