Paper Abstract

In this paper, the author presents the recent results of passive Broadband Bionic Sonar System in the detection and identification of underwater targets in background noise, 'acoustic daylight'. Using a resonance detection technique, various underwater objects, cylinders and spheres of different sizes and different material compositions, were detected in acoustic backgrounds noise in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. In addition, bottomed and buried 3-inch diameter, stainless steel sphere targets were detected in background noise. The report presents the result of many passive broadband sonar experiments in acoustic background noise.
