Description

The object of this research is to identify ways to reduce the auditory information available to enemy forces about individual soldier and squad activities by minimizing and manipulating one's (individual or squad) auditory signature. This research involves various methods of manipulating surrounding environment in order to hide soldier's presence, deceive the enemy by simulating soldier presence at a different location, and to project false information about the strength of the actual force. Data obtained could guide the creation of devices and procedures that mask, multiply, or misdirect the auditory information available to the enemy. This requires the extension of the current understanding of sound identification principles and their application within different contexts. In adition, this may include an understanding of the perceptual principles that induce change deafness. This understanding must include the multimodal cues that drive the real world processing of one's operational environment.
