The overall goal of our work is to utilize knowledge of the ocean environment to improve sonar detection and classification performance. Source classification and localization in the underwater environment is a challenging problem in part because propagation through the space- and time-varying medium introduces multipath, variability, and decorrelation to the signal. Traditional underwater signal classification has relied on parametric methods such as the likelihood ratio tests. Recent research has explored non-parametric methods like maximum entropy and maximum likelihood with favorable results. This talk considers other, more contemporary non-parametric methods, e.g. principle component analysis, independent component analysis and support vector machines, and compares their structure and performance with previous results.
