The US Navy has released its Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for its proposed Low Frequency Active (LFA) sonar array The LFA would use underwater speakers to detect "enemy" submarines by blasting the world's oceans with powerful 220-decibel (dB) low-frequency sound waves.
To improve detection of the new breed of quieter submarine, the Navy hopes to employ a low-frequency active sonar array. As opposed to passive sonar, which simply listens for unnatural sounds, active sonar produces a low-frequency signal (between 75 and 1,000 Hz) to create echoes off of hostile submarines.
