Bearing estimation using a large towed array
(Acoustical Society of America, 1975)
When a towed array of hydrophones is significantly nonlinear due to bending, ordinary linear array beamforming gives a biased estimate of the true source bearing. By processing the array as a sequence of smaller aperture ...
Beamforming when the sound velocity is not precisely known
(Acoustical Society of America, 1980-08)
Beamforming is an integral part of most signal processingsystems in active or passive sonars. The delays used to generate a beam are functions of the sound velocity, which depends on temperature, salinity, and pressure. ...
Bearing estimation using a perturbed linear array
(Acoustical Society of America, 1977-06)
A linear hydrophone array which is towed in the ocean is subject to snakelike bending. If the array is processed as if it was truly linear, the author has shown that the bending causes a deflection of the measured bearing ...
