Abstract:

It is the intent of this paper to outline the philosophy which undergirds the field of signal processing as it relates to instrumentation in underwater acoustics and in particular to the most prevalent application of underwater acoustics, sonar. The term signal processing as used here refers to the real time transformations carried out in sonar equipments to maximize the performance of the equipment within the limitations imposed by the ocean and its boundaries. Emphasis is placed on the limitation of the ocean and the influence of these limitations on equipment design rather than on a detailed description of the signal processing instrumentation which has been developed over the past several years.
