Abstract:

The objectives of the proposed MPL component of a SWAMSI continuation will develop bistatic applications of the iterative time reversal techniques to focus along the ocean bottom. Iterative time-reversal provides a simple solution for self-adaptive focusing on strong reflectors i.e. scattering targets located on the ocean bottom without relying on predictive or modeling capabilities of the environment and of the target of interest. These robust focusing properties are crucial for mapping large and uncharted area with little signal processing effort involved. With the experiments planned by Schmidt et al, there will be enough data to understand the ultimate limitations of the proposed self adaptive methods.
