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 ...
