Abstract

In the reception of radiated wave information in a medium, such as long wave acoustical waves in water, it has been found useful to employ a phased array of sensors to detect the direction of emanation of the source of the acoustical waves. Disclosed herein is an improved technique for detecting the direction of emanation of acoustical waves, commonly known as beamforming.
