Document Number: N0001401WX21030 LONG-TERM GOALS Our long-term goal is to assess the impact of temporal and spatial dynamics of oceanographic and meteorological factors on Navy sensors, systems, and operations. We will continue to improve our ability to exploit advances in remote sensing and climatology in the development of environmentally sensitive algorithms to improve ASW effectiveness in shallow-water, littoral regions. We intend to integrate

Current work has focused on the Genetic Algorithm (GA) to optimize the search path, but we are working on a Synthetic Annealing algorithm for problems where the GA is inefficient. We continue to develop GRASP in the areas of target motion modeling, multiple constraint measures of effectiveness, and user interface issues. New goals set in the past year include bistatic acoustic simulation, true broadband acoustic prediction, and classification and tracking algorithms.
