Marine Mammal Mitigation Decision Aid (M3DA)

Project Details
MAI has been cooperating with Rite Solutions, Inc. to combine the Acoustic Integration Model © (AIM) with the Rite-View visualization software and the Vista transmission loss engine. In this portion of the project, we added the ability to simultaneously model acoustic transmission from multiple sources simultaneously within a single animation.

This new software capability was applied to the analysis of a multiship Navy training exercise. The predicted sound pressure levels (SPL) and sound exposure levels (SEL) were calculated for marine mammals in the area.

This work has been performed as an SBIR for NAVSEA IWS5A.
