Computer model of a high-resolution imaging sonar
by Naval Postgraduate School, Available from National Technical Information Service in Monterey, Calif, Springfield, Va
Written in English
A computer model of a high-resolution sector-scanning sonar used for imaging objects against the sea bottom is presented. The model accounts for the sonar parameters, bottom backscatter, reflections from the target"s visible surface, and the target"s acoustic shadow. A variety of imaging scenarios can be simulated including the type of target, the target"s orientation relative to the sonar and the bottom, and the backscatter statistics. The acoustic images are presented in the conventional B-scan format. A new display format that is useful for visualizing the target"s silhouette is also presented. Visual perspective images of the scene are presented to serve as a reference for subsequent image reconstruction work. Preliminary results for 3-d reconstruction of the confining volume of the visible target surface are also presented. The simulation model and the results of the 3-d reconstruction demonstrate the promise of the application of image processing techniques for classification of objects using acoustic images. (kr)

Sonar (sound navigation ranging) is a technique that uses sound propagation (usually underwater, as in submarine navigation) to navigate, communicate with or detect objects on or under the surface of the water, such as other vessels. Two types of technology share the name "sonar": passive sonar is essentially listening for the sound made by vessels; active sonar is.
Robert D. Christ, Robert L. Wernli Sr., in The ROV Manual (Second Edition), Interpretation of sonar images. In many cases, the sonar image of a target will closely resemble an optical image of the same object. In other cases, the sonar image may be difficult to interpret and unlike the expected optical image.

Side Scan Sonar/Side Imaging® Sonar 1 – Hull Mounted vs Towed. With the advent of inexpensive hull mounted sonar systems such as the Humminbird® Side Imaging® sonar and professional software, users want to know if this unit will be as effective as a towed side scan sonar system.
The answer is absolutely, positively, maybe. Expert contributors identify applications and assess the impact of and improvements in radar, sonar, and medical imaging systems.
This handbook develops a generic processing structure, based on the similarities between radar, sonar, and medical imaging systems, to present an introduction to these new principles and applications. The accurate detection and identification of underwater targets continues as a major issue, despite, or perhaps as a result of, the promise of higher resolution underwater imaging systems, including synthetic aperture sonar and high frequency by: A high frequency, wide band sonar for high resolution imaging (English) EDO Model Sonar.

Numerous techniques have been proposed for computer aided detection to detect all possible mine-like objects, and computer. Digital image processing is the use of computer algorithms to perform image processing on digital images.
As a subfield of digital signal processing, digital image processing has many advantages over analog image processing; it allows a much wider range of algorithms to be applied to the input data, and can avoid problems such as the build-upFile Size: 9MB.
This model, the most extensive ever used for SAS simulations, has been verified by comparison to a SAS ocean experiment performed by others. By the use of the model, the three dominant influences of ocean, platform, and signal processing may be studied on the performance of synthetic aperture sonar by: 9.In this paper, high-resolution 3-D radar imaging system configuration using a 3-step image formation procedure is analyzed and discussed [1,2].
To demonstrate the high-resolution of the imaging system, a 3-D facet-model of object is used and computer simulation was conducted.
In the 3-D radar imaging system, an object is illuminated by coherent.This paper presents a novel and practical convolutional neural network architecture to implement semantic segmentation for side scan sonar (SSS) image. As a widely used sensor for marine survey, SSS provides higher-resolution images of the seafloor and underwater target.
