IEEE Underwater Acoustic Signal Processing Workshop

Four members of the group presented research at the IEEE Underwater Acoustic Signal Processing Workshop last week in Exeter, RI.   Congrats to Savas, David, Chris and CJ on giving great talks.   We also seized the opportunity to get a photo of all of the UMassD Signal Processing Group extended academic family at the workshop, with Dr. David Hague (NUWC/NPT) and Prof. Kaushallya Adhikari (URI) joining us, along with Kaushallya’s students.

SPG Minigolf day

Our group meeting last week was a game of mini golf – a great way to enjoy the summer weather.   Congrats to Brandon who is this year’s SPG mini golf champion.  Brandon also did a great job analyzing the “data” created by our scores (see figure below)

Mooring Cruise on 30 Jun 2023

We had another day cruise out to visit our mooring on the Encourager with Captain Jarrett Drake.  This time we did a quick turn-around: replacing the batteries and SD card with the acoustic data, then replacing the mooring to collect another 6 weeks or so of data.   Perfect weather and calm seas made for an easy cruise.   

CJ Passed His MS Defense!

Congrats to CJ Berg on passing his MS defense “A comparison of two approaches for rainfall estimation from underwater acoustics in Buzzards Bay” this morning!  CJ will be wrapping up his thesis revisions before starting at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport RI in Code 1513.
