Forward scattered waves are always overwhelmed by severely intense direct blasts when a submerged target crosses the source-receiver line. A processing scheme called direct blast suppression based on adaptive filtering (DBS-AF) is proposed to suppress such blasts. A verification experiment was conducted in a lake with a vertical hydrophone array and 10 kHz CW impulses. Processing results show that the direct blast is suppressed in a single channel, and an intruding target is identified by the lobes in the detection curve. The detection performance is improved by adopting a time-delay beam-former on the array as a pre-processing technique.
