Advancements in beamforming algorithms are exceeding the computation and communication capabilities of traditional sonar array systems. Implementing parallel beamforming algorithms in situ on distributed array systems holds the potential to provide increased performance and fault tolerance at a lower cost. This paper compares three parallel algorithms for distributed arrays in terms of execution throughput, result latency, scaled speedup, and parallel efficiency.
