Abstract
    The multiple beam echo sounding sonar (MBES) has become an important tool in oceanic applications such as seafloor mapping, sediment evaluation, sub-bottom profiling, surveys, fisheries research, mine countermeasures, and underwater inspections. Intense interest has been directed toward improvements in performance, and new concepts are being introduced at a rapid pace. Some of the new improvements include enhanced bottom coverage, new methods of sound velocity measurement and compensation for refraction, new methods of calibration, and flexible adaptation to the sediment as well as a new method to improve spatial resolution and signal processing.
