Description

The project involved listening to sound at two locations in the ocean and then doing cross-coherence calculations (compensating for relative differences in Doppler shift) to try to determine real sources in the ocean (ships, submarines) versus random noise. One issue was the use of appropriate statistics to call a "hit," and the M-out-of-N code was an exploration of this statistical analysis.
