http://www.militaryaerospace.com/articles/2013/03/APS-DARPA-DSOP.html

"The DSOP program seeks to use deep-sea areas known as
the sound fixing and ranging channel -- also known as the
deep sound channel -- that exists at ocean depths below
about 3,000 feet where the water is cold, silent, and dense,
and where the speed of sound is at its slowest.

Conditions in these areas act as a sound waveguide that
enables low-frequency sound waves to travel for thousands
of miles. DARPA wants APS to develop sensors that
essentially look upward through this acoustically silent
environment to detect the low-frequency sounds of enemy
submarines against a quiet background at long ranges."


Don't existing SOSUS & Towed-array sonars already do this?
