SONAR Applications

Real-time Underwater Channel Simulation

The video shows the application of KiRAT for SONAR applications. Several send and receive hydrophones can be placed in an underwater environement with adjustment possibilities, such as sound velocity profiles (depth dependent). In addition, wind speed and direction can be adjusted (both is fed into a statical model for creating a time and location dependent water surface and corresponding noise). Furthermore, several moving target can be simulated. The channel simulation is based on a restricted 3D ray tracing scheme, that allows freqeuency dependant ray parameters (e.g. reflection and attenuation).

Saturday Morning Physics 2018

The DSS team was invited to participate in the last of the "Saturday Morning Physics" (SMP) events in 2018. On December 8th, a Saturday of course, Thorben Kaak, Gerhard Schmidt, and Owe Wisch gave a talk on underwater signal processing. Pupils from all around Schleswig-Holstein were quite interested, especially in the basics of SONAR systems.
