The Ocean Acoustic Signal Processing (OASP) Research Group is affiliated with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at George Mason University. Professor Kathleen Wage and her graduate students work on multi-disciplinary problems that require a synthesis of array processing, acoustics, and oceanography. Their current projects focus on random matrix theory, sparse array design, deep water ambient noise, and mode propagation. The group's work is funded by the Office of Naval Research.
