Experimental Comparison of High Duty Cycle and Pulsed Active Sonars in a Littoral Environment


Military sonars must detect, localize, classify, and track submarine threats from distances safely outside their circle of attack. However, conventional pulsed active sonars (PAS) have duty cycles on the order of one percent which means that 99% of the time, the track is out of date. In contrast, high duty cycle sonars (HDC) have duty cycles approaching 100… (More)
