Paper Abstract

The purpose of this system development is to permit single pass data acquisition and increase the area coverage rate for a mine and obstacle survey of shallow water. The system would be useful in the search for other submerged targets as well. By coupling a high resolution SAR with a submerged acoustic source, a large area can be examined with a single pass of the aircraft that carries the radar. An experiment for the proof of feasibility of Radar Acoustic Hybrid is described. Experiment results are discussed and evaluated. This system is related to a predecessor that employed laser and acoustics. The trade-offs for convenience of use, resolution, and technological risk are considered so that the two system architecture options can be compared.
