Abstract: Field experiments are crucial in developing and evaluating acoustic sensors for target detection, direction finding, classification, and identification. The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) regularly conducts field experiments to demonstrate and evaluate real-time performance of the acoustic sensor test bed and to collect signature data of new targets for an ARL acoustic and seismic database. During 20 to 30 September 1999, ARL conducted a field experiment of Spesutie Island, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, as part of the Distributed Uattended Networked Sensors (DUNES) program. The main objectives of this experiment were to demonstrate the advances of the new generation of acoustic sensors and to collect data of new targets. This report documents the field test log, sensor array descriptions, and meteorological data from that experiment.
