The first book exclusively on sonar and sonar technology. Written by an engineer (with over 40 years of experience in the field) for engineers. Taking an engineering approach rather than a physics/math one it provides an understanding of the basic principles of sonar and develops the formulae and "rules of thumb" for sonar design and performance analysis.
ASHLEY WAITE retired from the UK Ministry of Defence in 1990 after 40 years of Underwater Warfare Research at Portland. He then joined Thomson Marconi Sonar (now Thales Underwater Systems Limited) as a Consultant for a further 10 years. He still maintains an involvement with sonar in a freelance capacity.
