  author={M. Bono and Ben Shapo and Pete McCarty}
Broadband processing is an important part of the Navy's current and future SONAR systems. This paper provides an introduction to a new class of passive broadband processing algorithms, Subband Energy Detection (SED), which includes both Subband Peak Energy Detection (SPED) and Subband Extrema Energy Detection (SEED). It will be shown that SED has several performance advantages over Conventional Energy Detection (CED), also known as Linear Rectify (LR). SED exploits the spatial coherence of the… CONTINUE READING
