Dr. Sutin’'s research includes Physical and nonlinear acoustics - experimental investigations and theoretical interpretation, Underwater acoustics and acoustical oceanography, Interaction of the acoustic waves with cracks and damage, Applications of nonlinear acoustics to Nondestructive Evaluation, Time Reversal Acoustics and its application in medicine, Nondestructive Evaluation, land mine detection, and Passive acoustic diver detection.

In addition to his contributions as senior scientist for the Center for Maritime Systems, Dr. Sutin is also an acoustics expert, and an innovator of a new technology known as time-reversal acoustics. The technology promises a wide array of applications, including in medicine for ultra-precise medical imaging, diagnostic techniques using ultrasound, incision-free surgical techniques, and even the potential for a method of recharging the batteries of implanted devices like pacemakers without performing surgery.

Dr. Sutin is an award winning author, has contributed to multiple conference proceedings and journals, and has received recognition for his research contributions such as the Winner region Blekinge, Sweden 2001, and SKAPA Foundation Award in memory of Alfred Nobel, for Nonlinear Nondestructive Ultrasound Testing.
