Abstract : The objective of the USG task under which this report was prepared was to determine existing acoustic frequencies, review future requirements and to develop underwater frequency standards. The task originated from an expressed desire for 'Standards for Underwater Recovery'. However, as this requirement was of such a broad scope, it was decided to concentrate initial efforts on frequency standardization. This work was further narrowed to RCC-member Ranges underwater (U/W) frequency usage. The future requirements were considered to be extensions of present usages and were incorporated accordingly. The results of Range surveys, related work by other agencies and final conclusions/recommendations are contained in the report.
