High resolution sonar (tutorial slides)
On adaptive underwater object detection
A new algorithm for the detection of underwater objects in sonar imagery is proposed. One particularly novel component of the algorithm also detects the presence of, and estimates the orientation of, sand ripples. The ...
Performance assessment of the MUSCLE synthetic aperture sonar
Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) systems are quickly becoming fundamental tools for seabed mapping applications, as they provide high resolution imagery independent of range from the sensor, with high area coverage rates. ...
Multi-view SAS image classification using deep learning
A new approach is proposed for multi-view classification when sonar data is in the form of imagery and each object has been viewed an arbitrary number of times. An image-fusion technique is employed in conjunction with a ...
AUV-enabled adaptive underwater surveying for optimal data collection
A new adaptive strategy for performing data collection with a sonar-equipped autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) is proposed. The approach is general in the sense that it is applicable to a wide range of underwater tasks ...
