Scoping study for upgrading the Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) underwater acoustic calibration system: D68-9/58-2016E-PDF

"DRDC’s acoustic calibration system has been in operation since 1959. Periodic upgrades are performed on the system hardware to make use of new technology as it becomes available. In 2014, new hardware was purchased for data acquisition and generation. Updates to the calibration software are required to integrate the new hardware into the system. This study included an analysis of the upgrades needed to achieve a functional and maintainable integrated system. The options for updating or redesigning the calibration software were evaluated, and recommendations are provided for software and hardware upgrades necessary before the new data acquisition hardware can be used with the system. The assessment also identified areas where the addition of equipment and environmental sensors would improve and enhance the capabilities of the system. With these upgrades to both software and hardware, the DRDC underwater calibration system will be in a position to better meet the research needs of scientists at DRDC, the Canadian Forces and other government departments, as well as offer a competitive and attractive facility for researchers in industry and academia"--Abstract, p. i.
