Aperture synthesis is a mature technique that has been used with success in a number of remote sensing fields. Sonars can also potentially benefit from the technique, though to date the limitations of slow acoustic propagation and difficulty in maintaining a stable platform has hindered investigation. This thesis investigates aperture synthesis for high resolution underwater imaging. A prototype sonar is designed and fabricated for the study. The performance of the sonar is assessed in both tank and sea trials and the results presented in this thesis.
