Abstract : In a split beam sonar system the signal to noise ratio and the azimuthal resolution may be altered by varying the configuration of the subarrays. This paper analyses the performance of such a sonar, taking account of the noise correlation between the subarrays to optimise the sonar performance. (Author)
