Abstract
The Canadian Navy has a continuing requirement to acoustically detect both surface vessels and submarines. Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) through DRDC Atlantic has embarked on the first phase of development of the next generation of operational sonars for the Canadian Navy. The Towed Integrated Active Passive Sonar (TIAPS) Technology Demonstrator (TD) is being developed to demonstrate basic sonar capability and will serve as a testbed for further concept development. Q271 is the fifth 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 Mitigation Plan has been developed to detail the procedures to be used. This document describes the procedures.
