Avoiding Active Acoustic Impact On Marine Mammals Using Autonomous Detection And Classification Technology

In-Depth Engineering Corporation (IEC), teamed with Marine Acoustics, Incorporated (MAI), L3Harris Corporation (L3), and QorTek, Incorporated will provide a low-cost, and compact active and passive acoustic marine mammal detection and classification capability for the Deep Water Active (DWA) component of the Deployable Surveillance System (DSS). This research effort pairs MAI ‘s subject matter expertise on sonar mitigation system design, marine mammal population dynamics, and vocal behavior ecology with IEC, L3, and OorTek’s proven technical capabilities in developing novel active and passive sonar systems.
