Resolving power is very important when comparing localization methods in underwater passive listening. The authors introduce a simple criterion that is based on a second-order analysis of different localization functions usually available in array processing: conventional and adaptive beamforming and the MUSIC method. A general procedure is presented in both finite- and infinite-time observation cases, providing a system of equations. Its solutions are shown to describe areas as functions of… CONTINUE READING
