For decades Kongsberg has been a pioneer in the development of technology for a range of hydro-acoustic applications including seabed mapping on AUV. But one size doesn’t fit all, or does it? Understanding some basic sonar fundamentals this tutorial focuses on the fundamental methods and introduces problems and solutions to some new developments with both existing Multibeam and Synthetic aperture sonar.
