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).

MIMO SONAR System

Recently, we get the new projector front-ends from Atlas Elektronik for our MIMO SONAR system. This was part of the "Großgerät" which was obtained with the help of the German research foundation (DFG). Now we are able to perform underwater experiments that will show if our ideas and corresponding realt-time algorithms also works in real environments.

We would like to thank all of our ...
