  • Patent number: 4207620
    Abstract: An underwater mapping system in which a swath of terrain, much wider than a sonar beam width, is observed by means of a sonar beam scanned in the cross track plane of a ship. Filtering and correlation techniques are employed to compensate for distortions in echoes emanating from the ocean bottom by a selection of filter coefficients in accordance with the orientation of the sonar beams and by providing a simulated echo envelope for correlation.
