Abstract
Naval sonars operate in a variety of scenarios, and simulating sonar performance continues to be an art based on scientific principles. As it may be unrealistic to expect that sonar databases will exist for all possible naval theatres, an alternative solution is to attempt to quickly assess the sonar operating environment just prior to and/or during deployment. This paper presents the current DREA perspective on the rquirements for Rapid Environmental Assessment in the sonar context, current methods and activities, and some suggestions regarding the way ahead, with emphasis on acoustic characteristics of the seabed.
