Classical analogs of the quantum mechanical concepts of the Loschmidt Echo and quantum fidelity
are developed with the goal of detecting small perturbations in a closed wave chaotic region.
Sensing techniques that employ a one-recording-channel time-reversal-mirror, which in turn relies
on time reversal invariance and spatial reciprocity of the classical wave equation, are introduced. In
analogy with quantum fidelity, we employ scattering fidelity techniques which work by comparing
response signals of the scattering region, by means of cross correlation and mutual information of
signals. The performance of the sensing techniques is compared for various perturbations induced
experimentally in an acoustic resonant cavity. The acoustic signals are parametrically processed to
