Saebo, T.O. Groen, J. Quesson, B.A.J. Sabel, J.C. TNO Defensie en Veiligheid Contributor Papadakis, J.S. (editor) Bjorno, L. (editor) Publication year 2005 Abstract An acoustic simulator is vital for the development of sonar data processing. The most important features in the TNO 3D simulator SIMONA are detailed target response including shadow, reverberation modelling, sonar properties and multipath. The verification and development of SIMONA was realized alongside with a wide range of measurements in a wide frequency range (10 kHz-200 kHz). High resolution sonar systems used for mine hunting reveal more and more object detail. The system under investigation in this article is the so-called SENSOTEK sonar, which will be used as a system mounted on the HUGIN Autonomous Underwater Vehicle. This article shows one simulated scenario in full detail with and without multipath. Target response, shadow and shadow filling are analyzed separately in order to demonstrate their significance.
