Paper Abstract

An SRI breadboard designed specifically for use in the underwater environment was assembled, and a second series of underwater imaging experiments were performed in the swimmer delivery vehicle test tank at Coastal Systems Station in November-December 1999. The objective of these experiments was to collect information for a critical assessment of the effect of selected system parameters on image quality, to help quantify the effective underwater performance of the SRI under controlled test conditions, and to obtain data in support of an active modeling effort. The data from these experiments are currently being analyzed. A brief description of these experiments is presented along with a discussion of selected results.
