The boat was instrumented with an acoustic receiver (Model MAP_600 RT, Lotek Wireless) and stereo hydrophones (Model LHP, Lotek Wireless) capable of detecting, identifying, and recording CDMA transmitter signals.
Here's a small sampling of topics to give an idea of the subject range and technical level of the papers: symbol synchronization for an underwater acoustic receiver, particle discharge pattern recognition of electrical transformers, sorting radar signals based on coherency, acoustic evaluation of different types of external windows in severe cold areas in China, an optical fiber displacement sensor based on RBF neural network, and application of optimization in image de-noising by shrinkage of wavelet coefficients.

Each acoustic receiver was assigned a position along the centerline of the river on the basis of the distance of the receiver from the mouth of the river (the mouth of the river was assigned the position of river kilometer 0; the capture location was assigned the position of river kilometer 10.5).
On the first mooring to be deployed, a critical microprocessor on the main acoustic receiver array malfunctioned, threatening to compromise the experiment.
