Based on the theoretical results reported in [ 1460 (1993)] and the simulated results reported in [ 3312(A) (1994)] an experiment to determine the performance of sequential classifying spherical objects in shallow water has been carried out. The shallow water data were obtained from experiments off the East Coast of the United States in 1993. Five spherical objects of different composition were embedded in shallow water data and the performance of a sequential classifier to correctly identify the objects was obtained. The performance results of these tests using standard measures of effectiveness will be reported.
