DREA and NATO mine countermeasures trials begin this week on the east coast

July 17, 2001

HALIFAX - Innovative experiments involving mine hunting and seabed
acoustics are taking place from July 3 to 20, 2001 in Halifax Harbour and
St. Margaret's Bay, as scientists from the Defence Research Establishment
Atlantic (DREA) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's (NATO)
Undersea Research Centre (SACLANTCEN) come together for collaborative sea

Twenty-six scientists will collect data to help them better understand mine
detection. This collaborative trial will significantly advance the ongoing
work of DREA and SACLANTCEN in mine hunting and seabed acoustics.

"The data from these tests will provide what is needed to develop the heart
of future Canadian Navy mine hunting systems," says Deputy Director General
at DREA, Warren Nethercote.

The sea trials are the result of the deployment of the NATO research vessel
NRV Alliance to the East Coast of North America this summer. Alliance
operates out of La Spezia, Italy, and usually spends most of her time in
the Mediterranean or the Western Atlantic. Alliance last visited the
eastern seaboard, and collaborated with DREA in 1992. SACLANTCEN scientists
aboard Alliance will be cooperating with DREA scientists aboard the
Department of National Defence's research vessel, CFAV Quest.

SACLANT's staff, including external branches, consists of 574 members (405
military and 87 civilian) from 17 of the 19 NATO nations, including France
who has a mission located near SACLANT Headquarters. Allied Command
Atlantic has a permanently assigned multinational naval force called the
Standing Naval Force Atlantic (STANAVFORLANT), which consists of six to 10
ships from different NATO nations. The command is also responsible for the
SACLANT Undersea Research Centre, located in La Spezia, Italy, which
conducts marine research for both major NATO military commands and operates
the research vessel Alliance

Si studia il perfezionamento della ricerca antimine.
Joint Sea TrialsIn collaboration with NATO scientists aboard the Research
Vessel Alliance, we conducted innovative experiments in mine hunting and
seabed acoustics in Nova Scotia. High-frequency sonar systems were used to
determine characteristics of the ocean bottom and to perform mine detection
tests. The ultimate goal of the project is to allow tactical commanders to
optimize the performance of active sonar systems by exploiting our
knowledge of the undersea environment.

Informazioni sull'attivita della nave nel mar mediterraneo

La nave alliance sta sperimentando un nuovo tipo di sonar militare molto
per i cetecei.

Fact - In 1998 Nature published a letter by Dr. Alexandros Frantzis in
which he discussed a highly unusual stranding of Curvier beaked whales off
the coast of Greece in 1996. Dr. Frantzis correlated the stranding with
trials of LFAS from a NATO research vessel, "Alliance". According to the
official NATO report on this stranding, these whales were exposed to
150-160 dB of LFAS.

Bioacoustics panel met in mid-June 1998 to investigate circumstances
surrounding the stranding of Cuvier's Beaked whales (Ziphius cavirostris)
on the Greek Coast in Kyparissiakos Gulf in May of 1996. The NATO Research
Vessel Alliance had been conducting sonar testing in Kyparissiakos Gulf at
the time of the strandings. The following summary of findings regarding
possible causes and panel recommendations are quoted from the panel report.


Stop the Madness of LFAS-Fermare la pazzia del LFAS

The US Navy and NATO forces are intent on deploying a proven deadly sonar
system [LFAS] in 80% of the world's oceans. This technology would send a
pulseblast of up to 250 decebels (1 billion times louder than a 747 at
takeoff!) out into the ocean atmosphere that amplifies its speed up to 8
times. This fatal blast will completely inundate any cetaceans and other
sea life whose sensitivity tosound is at least 10 times greater than ours.

Even NATO's own undersea research centre made findings several years ago
that support the link between high-intensity sonar and damage to marine
mammals. The centre correlated a mass stranding of Cuvier's beaked whales
off Greece in 1996 with sonar tests conducted by the NATO vessel Alliance.

After looking for possible causes of the stranding, Frantzis and colleagues
discovered that the NATO Research Vessel Alliance had been conducting LFAS
tests the day prior to the strandings.Noting that LFAS tests had previously
been tentatively linked with Cuvier's strandings elsewhere, Frantzis
concluded in the Nature article, "We know that LFAS was used in
Kyparissiakos Gulf. We also know that no other LFAS tests or mass
strandings have occurred in the Greek Ionian Sea since 1981. Taking the
past 16.5-year period into account, the probability of a mass stranding
occurring for other reasons, during the period of the LFAS tests is less
than 0.07 percent. Although pure coincidence cannot be excluded, it seems
improbable that the two events were independent."

 In a 1998 Nature article, Alexandros Frantzis pointed out that 12 Cuvier's
beaked whales beached themselves alive on a Mediterranean coast while NATO
was testing LFAS there. He concluded the chance of that happening for any
other reason was less than 0.07 percent. The U.S. Navy research vessel
Alliance performed that test for NATO but at a higher frequency than the
United States used, said the Navy's Johnson

May of 1996? Alexander Frantzis, an oceanographer at the Natural Center of
Marine Research in Athens, puzzled over the incident for more than a year
before he hit upon what he believes to be the cause: during that period,
the NATO research vessel Alliance conducted tests of Low Frequency Active
Sonar (LFAS), a system that can track submarines by sending out underwater
sound waves. Since marine mammals use their hearing to navigate the seas,
Frantzis contends, bursts of noise from sonar systems could cause the
animals to go astray and become stranded on the shore.
