Sonar performance modelling (SPM) is concerned with the prediction of quantitative measures of sonar performance, such as probability of detection. It is a multi-disciplinary subject, requiring knowledge and expertise in the disparate fields of underwater acoustics, acoustical oceanography, sonar signal processing and statistical detection theory. No books have been published on this subject, however, since the 3rd edition of Urick's classic work 25 years ago and so Dr Ainslie's book will fill a much-needed gap in the market. Currently, up-to-date information can only be found, in different forms and often with conflicting information, in various journals, conference and textbook publications. Dr Michael Ainslie is eminently qualified to write this unique book. He has worked on sonar performance modeling problems since 1983. He has written many peer reviewed research articles and conference papers related to sonar performance modeling, making contributions in the fields of sound propagation and detection theory.

From the reviews:"This book attempts to provide a combination of information and understanding of the physics and detection theory to enable the reader to address sonar performance issues. ... this book is most useful for those who need to build models of aspects of sonar performance. It will also be useful for those who need to specify, test, or evaluate models. ... a source of material for someone preparing a course on underwater acoustics or sonar performance modelling. ... a good reference book for an acoustics library." (Adrian Brown, International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration, Vol. 17 (1), 2012)
