Filtering Acoustic Signal Tags

FAST is a program for filtering out noise from acoustic-tag reception data. The program is designed for use with reception of acoustic signals from JSATS tags on cabled and autonomous hydrophone nodes.

FAST is no longer supported by Columbia Basin Research. However, the logic used in the FAST filter is described in the three documents provided under “Attachment.” We encourage interested users to review the logic for filter definitions and removal of mimic decodes. Note that this logic was developed for the JSATS technology in use in 2013 and may require updating for modern technology. (July 2023)
