Overarching goals for this work aim to advance the state of the art for detection, classification and localization (DCL) in the field of bioacoustics. This goal is primarily achieved by building a generic framework for detection-classification (DC) using a fast, efficient and scalable architecture, demonstrating the capabilities of this system using on a variety of low-frequency mid-frequency cetacean sounds. Two primary goals are to develop transferable technologies for detection and

For each key area, we will focus on producing publications from this work and providing tools and software to the community where/when possible. Currently massive amounts of acoustic data are being collected by various institutions, corporations and national defense agencies. The long-term goal is to provide technical capability to analyze the data using automatic algorithms for (DC) based on machine intelligence. The goal of the automation is to provide effective and efficient mechanisms by which to process large acoustic datasets for understanding the bioacoustic behaviors of marine mammals. This capability will provide insights into the potential ecological impacts and influences of anthropogenic ocean sounds. This work focuses on building technologies using a maturity model based on DARPA 6.1 and 6.2 processes, for basic and applied research, respectively.
