Visualization of Underwater Acoustics
This project is funded by the Office of Naval Research. For more information, please contact Rob King or Larry Rosenblum.
The technical objective is to develop effective hydro-acoustic data visualization techniques for use in an anti-submarine warfare system.
This project is a collaboration with the Naval Undersea Warfare Command.
The objective of this project is to design, develop, and assess 3-D visualization as an aid for the anti-submarine warfare decision maker to: (1) rapidly assimilate the battlespace, (2) understand the problem uncertainty and develop more accurate solutions, and (3) acquire new insights into the battlespace. The visualization will be assessed in a tactically relevant problem domain (shallow water passive localization) that includes a complex acoustic environment, measurement error and uncertainty, complex acoustic coverage, and data latency.
Here are a few slides showing some example visualization techniques and visualization environments.

We are designing a system that avoids information overload by showing only the relevant information at a given time.
