Abstract : The Mobile Sonar Technology (MOST) Exploratory Development Program carries out the technological investigations necessary to develop the technology base to support advanced sonar system development. The end objective is to provide the fleet with the enhanced sonar system capabilities to meet continually increased mission requirements. The breadth of the Program, directed toward achieving this objective, is increased through monitoring the overall Navy Sonar exploratory development program to maximize the benefits to be derived from other activities' efforts, through surveying foreign sonar R and D efforts to disclose areas where maximum benefit might be achieved through data exchange and cooperative programs, and, finally, by allocating Program resources to those remaining technical areas which, through the guidance obtained from the MOST Committee, offer the greatest potential payoff on the end objective.
