Synthetic aperture sonar

Synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) is a form of side-scan sonar, SAS processing provides range-independent along-track resolution. At maximum range the resolution can be magnitudes better than that of side-scan sonars.

For further reading, the Open Access Article: Introduction to Synthetic Aperture Sonar[1] can be recommended as introduction for people familiar with Sonar Systems. For academics, the IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering article: Synthetic Aperture Sonar, A Review of Current Status[2] gives an overview of the history and an extensive list of references for the community achievements up to 2009.
