Abstract
The Canadian Navy has a continuing requirement to acoustically detect both surface vessels and submarines. The Defence Research and Development Branch (DRDB) through the Defence Research Establishment Altantic (DREA) is embarking on the first phase of development of the next generation of operational sonars for the Canadian Navy: the Towed Integrated Active Passive Sonar (TIAPS). The TIAPS Technology Demonstrator (TD) will demonstrate basic sonar capability and will serve as a testbed for concept development. Q266 is the fourth in a series of sea trials that are required to develop and demonstrate this capability. Since acoustic energy will be transmitted during the trial, a Marine Mammal Impact Mitigration Plan has been developed to detail the procedures to be used. This document describes the procedures.
