Abstract
An initial survey of the passive underwater acoustic signal processing capabilities available at Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) was conducted. The focus of this survey was methods and algorithms for passive sonar detection, classification, localization, and tracking (DCLT) to enable research for the Canadian Arctic Underwater Sentinel Experiment (CAUSE). The information in this review was primarily gathered through discussions with other scientists, engineers, and computer scientists, rather than an exhaustive literature review. As a result of this survey, several gaps in DCLT processing capability were identified that should be addressed during the CAUSE project. Seven main areas for research and development were identified that have the potential to significantly enhance the signal processing capabilities for the CAUSE project. Much of this work will be conducted by a contractor; however, some research will continue to be carried out by DRDC scientists, and in collaboration with academic and international partners.
