Exploratory development in this research involves the development of algorithms, based on human perception of sound, for improved and automated active sonar classification. Single-ping algorithms transform sonar sounds into aural features for a new classifier for sounds.
The project uses archived data sets and human subject research results to develop human-mimetic transforms to generate set-theoretic features to describe sounds. The project seeks to develop classifiers based on these types of features.
Derek Brock is a co-Principal Investigator in this project in collaboration with Dr. Charles Gaumond of NRL Code 7162.
