An analysis of the multistatic employment of low frequency active sonar.  Strode, Christopher. CMRE-FR-2014-028. December 2014.

This work examines a number of metrics and operational analysis techniques to explore the potential employment of Low frequency Active Sonar (LFAS) within multistatic networks. The analysis considers the combined sonar area coverage of a number of monostatic and bistatic configurations including LFAS operating in conjunction with sonobuoys and helicopter dipping sonar. The conclusions of this study may be used to update the current Surface Ship Multistatic Sonar EXTAC which has been drafted by the United Kingdom, France and Canada.
