AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course, after a few elements of underwater acoustics, describes the theory and techniques for the processing of signals produced or received by arrays of transducers. Special emphasis is given to image generation. An overview of some important applications is provided, including sonar systems, medical ultrasound, and microphone arrays
