We designed and jointly optimized an integrated signal processing chain for detection and classification of long-range passive-acoustic underwater signals recorded by the global geophysical monitoring network of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization. Starting at the level of raw waveform data, a processing chain of signal...

Reliable localization of marine mammals using towed arrays is often required for mitigation, population density estimates, and bioacoustics research. The accuracy of the range estimates using towed arrays is often not well quantified. Triangulation methods using multiple hydrophones allow for fast range estimates but are sensitive to the species...

In-situ measurements of the scattering function are used to drive a channel simulator developed in the context of underwater acoustic telemetry. Two operation modes of the simulator are evaluated. A replay mode is accomplished by interpolation of measured impulse responses. A second, stochastic mode delivers multiple realizations of a given...

The authors discuss the way we perceive the quality of a speech signal and how different degradations contribute to the overall perceived speech (listening) quality. More specifically, ITU-T Recommendation P.862 (perceptual evaluation of speech quality-PESQ), which provides a perceptual modeling approach with which the subjectively perceived...

This paper focuses on estimating the two-dimensional (2-D) target-speed vector (course and speed) using a multistatic sonar that consists of one monostatic sonar and one bistatic receiver. The speed and course estimates are obtained after a single transmission. The theory on bistatic Doppler and 2-D target-speed vector estimation is first...

This paper provides an overview of the special session on multistatic sonar and radar tracking at FUSION 2006. This includes background on the multistatic tracking working group, a brief description of the datasets and trackers that compose this working group at present, and a detailed discussion of a proposed set of tracker performance metrics....

In this paper, we present an acoustic-phonetic approach to automatic pronunciation error detection. Classifiers using techniques such as Linear Discriminant Analysis and Decision Trees were developed for three sounds that are frequently pronounced incorrectly by L2-learners of Dutch: /a/, /y/ and /x/. This paper will focus mainly on the problems...

The unmasked underwater hearing sensitivities of an 8-year-old male and a 7-year-old female Steller sea lion were measured in a pool, by using behavioral psychophysics. The animals were trained with positive reinforcement to respond when they detected an acoustic signal and not to respond when they did not. The signals were narrow-band,...

Active noise reduction is a successful addition to passive ear-defenders for improvement of the sound attenuation at low frequencies. Design and assessment methods are discussed, focused on subjective and objective attenuation measurements, stability, and high noise level applications. Active noise reduction systems are suitable for integration...

BPSK signals have been defined for transmission through a shallow-water acoustic communication channel. The signals were accompanied by two displaced carriers to facilitate carrier recovery. To correct for the adverse effects of time spreading, a pseudo-random learning sequence was transmitted ahead of the communication signal. The signal...
