Title
Mine Hunting Sonar Performance Prediction Application
Description

Mine Hunting SONAR is heavily used in MCM operations. Poor estimates of SONAR performance may result in poor mission planning and inaccurate assessment of remaining risk. The estimation of probability of detection and classification of echoes is taken into account to determine the track spacing and the number of runs per tracks necessary to complete the assigned task. For this purpose, an off-line database is used. The Sonar Performance Prediction Application enables users to retrieve Mine Hunting SONAR Performance figures for an MCM Unit to perform its task. The Application returns P(y) Curve, A and B values, Probability of Detection (Bd), Probability of False alarm (Bfa), Probability of Classification (Bc), and False Contact Rate.
