Underwater Acoustical Imaging and Sensing Systems for Homing, Docking, Navigation and Collision Avoidance
This paper presents a simple high-performance algorithm for underwater geolocation and navigation. The simplicity of the algorithm provides excellent stability, accuracy, and computation efficiency. In addition, the paper also describes the reversed version of the system for the enhancement of system performance, and the conversion to active system for UUV collision avoidance.
