Experimental demonstration of a high-frequency forward scattering acoustic barrier in a dynamic coastal environment.

Abstract

Detecting a target by measuring its forward scattered field is of interest for harbor surveillance because target strength levels are generally higher in the forward direction than in the backward direction for simple geometries. An acoustic barrier based on forward scattering was demonstrated in a nearly range-independent shallow water environment. The… (More)
