Synthetic Aperture Sonar Challenges

Synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) has been under active development for decades. The technique is particularly well suited for autonomous underwater vehicles, and it is expected that SAS will replace traditional side-scan sonars for many ‘high-end’ AUV applications in the years to come. Research systems have been used for more than 15 years and many R&D groups around the world have been able to present images that would not have been possible to produce using traditional sonars. However, in many cases, these impressive sonar images are the result of days of tuning and tweaking by experts. A lot of effort has... (read more)
