A neural network (NN) approach for the continuous recognition of undersea targets from side- scan sonar returns is presented. This approach takes more than one return at a time, thereby enabling the network to learn the spectral temporal dependencies of consecutive returns. The horizontal distance scanned at a time could be expanded by increasing the number of groups in the input layer of the network. Also, a simple and powerful stochastic algorithm called Alopex is described for the training of the network. The studies and results with approach are described.
