Abstract : This report presents brief summaries of Independent Research (IR) projects. Three projects are described in detail: Optical Fiber Devices Based on Index of Refraction Changes in Highly Overcoupled Fused-Fiber Couplers; Tidal Exchange at the Bay-Ocean Boundary; and Detection Algorithms Derived from Gaussian Mixture and Hidden Markov Noise Models with Applications to Radar and Sonar. This report is submitted in response to ONR INST 3900.37 of 3 June 1994. The work detailed in this report was carried out at the Naval Command, Control and Ocean Surveillance Center RDT&E Division during FY 96.
