High-frequency bistatic scattering: comparison of tank and sea experiments

Research output: Chapter or section in a book/report/conference proceedingChapter or section


Bistatic scattering geometries are increasingly used in oceanographic exploration, in particular for Rapid-Environmental Assessment. Scattering models are numerous, but have not been benchmarked due to the scarcity of bistatic experiments. We present here results from tank experiments conducted using the facilities at the University of Bath, with different types of seabed. They are compared with results from recent sea trials conducted with SACLANTCEN on a sandy rippled seabed, and with results from multi-geometry, multi-frequency simulations.
