Abstract
AN ACTIVE SONAR SYSTEM IS PROPOSED THAT WILL ELIMINATE THE ADVERSE EFFECTS OF REVERBERATION IN LONG CONTINUOUS WAVE (CW) ACOUSTIC TRANSMISSIONS. THE UNIQUE SYSTEM EMPLOYS A CIRCLE DETECTOR PROCESSOR THAT WILL DETECT A TARGET WITH A SMALL DOPPLER SHIFT EVEN WHEN IT IS BURIED IN REVERBERATIONS WITH THE SIGNAL TO NOISE RATIO AS LOW AS -26 DB.
