Author Affiliations +
This paper describes a simple new optical technique for enhancing underwater target detection. Small-scale laboratory experiments using an idealised turbid medium consisting of polystyrene particles in water showed that detection ranges were up to an order of magnitude greater than those achieved using conventional methods. This work was carried out as part of the Electronic Systems Domain of the MOD Research programme.
