This report documents the work done to enhance the Software Tools for Analysis and Research (STAR) by creating displays appropriated for data collected using towed arrays. The STAR software suite was developed to support general research and analysis objectives at Defence R&D Canada (DRDC) - Atlantic. Though relatively generic, many of the STAR displays had been tuned to meet the requirements of sonobuoy analysis with a single display pane displaying data from a single receiver / beam combination. Under this contract, three displays were added to aid in visualizing and analyzing large amounts of Energy Time Indicator (ETI) data on a single image. These summary displays provide a more intuitive view of the available information. New displays include a beam map display, a polar beam map display, and an on-demand beam clutter display. Each new display contains a single image with intensity represented by a grey-scale or colour-map. For the beam map display, the time varying intensity of all beams from a single receiver is shown. On the polar map display, monostatic or multistatic data is mapped onto a geographic display. The beam clutter display maps the time varying intensity from many pings for a single receiver / beam combination onto a single image. The last display previously existed, but it can now be generated “on-the-fly”. A number of display options are user-modifiable at run-time using a number of custom settings dialogues. Options include quantization selection, c
