  2. 2. Applied Technology Institute 349 Berkshire Drive Riva, Maryland 21140-1433 Tel 410-956-8805 • Fax 410-956-5785 Toll Free 1-888-501-2100 www.ATIcourses.com Technical and Training Professionals, Now is the time to think about bringing an ATI course to your site! If there are 8 or more people who are interested in a course, you save money if we bring the course to you. If you have 15 or more students, you save over 50% compared to a public course. This catalog includes upcoming open enrollment dates for many courses. We can teach any of them at your location. Our website, www.ATIcourses.com, lists over 50 additional courses that we offer. For 26 years, the Applied Technology Institute (ATI) has earned the TRUST of training departments nationwide. We have presented “on-site” training at all major DoD facilities and NASA centers, and for a large number of their contractors. Since 1984, we have emphasized the big picture systems engineering perspective in: - Defense Topics - Engineering & Data Analysis - Sonar & Acoustic Engineering - Space & Satellite Systems - Systems Engineering with instructors who love to teach! We are constantly adding new topics to our list of courses - please call if you have a scientific or engineering training requirement that is not listed. We would love to send you a quote for an onsite course! For “on-site” presentations, we can tailor the course, combine course topics for audience relevance, and develop new or specialized courses to meet your objectives. Regards, P.S. We can help you arrange “on-site” courses with your training department. Give us a call.2 – Vol. 105 Register online at www.ATIcourses.com or call ATI at 888.501.2100 or 410.956.8805

Summary This course provides an excellent introduction to underwater sound and highlights how sonar principles are employed in ASW analyses. The course provides a solid understanding of the sonar equation and discusses in- depth propagation loss, target strength, reverberation, arrays, array gain, and detection of signals. Physical insight and typical results are provided to help understand each term of the sonar equation. The instructors then show how the sonar equation can be used to perform ASW analysis and predict the performance of passive and active sonar systems. The course also reviews the rationale behind current weapons and sensor systems and discusses directions for research in response to the quieting of submarine signatures. The course is valuable to engineers and scientists who are entering the field or as a review for employees who want a system level overview. The lectures provide the knowledge and perspective needed to understand recent developments in underwater acoustics and in ASW.
