Acoustical Society of America selects AUE paper for award

The editors of the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America have selected Perry Naughton‘s paper on using ambient sound to localize our Autonomous Underwater Explorers for their Technical Area Pick for Signal Processing. With colleagues from the Jaffe lab, UCSD, and Université Grenoble Alpes, Perry demonstrated that the free drifting floats could be tracked relative to each other with only sounds of opportunity from the surrounding environment — no extra pingers needed! The technique could be used to facilitate low cost, low energy multi-vehicle surveys.
