M. Sc. (Tech). at Technical Physics, including courses on pattern recognition, signal processing and applied mathematics in Helsinki University of Technology , 1986. Research career in Finnish Coastal Artillery (1986-1991) and after that in Finnish Navy. Research applications include passive acoustic sensor signal detection and processing , ambient noise modelling and pattern recognition applied to naval and merchant ship acoustic signature classification. Naval career includes also design and testing of new passive and active surveillance sonar systems as well as sonar performance modelling and measuring particularly concerning northern Baltic Sea area and Finnish territorial shallow water environment. Current interest also in acoustic intelligence and modern underwater communication networks as well as design and testing payloads for unmanned underwater vehicles for surveillance purposes.
