Abstract:

This Final Engineering Report summarizes the results of a study conducted for the Navy to develop an Adaptive Beamforming ABF Systems Designers Handbook to aid sonar system planners and designers in conducting tradeoff analyses of such variables as size, weight, power and complexity versus system capability. Tasks involved in this study which are summarized in this report include algorithm definition, system design, semiconductor tradeoff analyses, system implementation, and handbook and module specification generation. Summary charts and equations relating design parameters to system size, weight, power, and complexity are conveniently tabulated in appendix form for ease of use by the sonar system designer.
