Hey all! After combing the web for something that succinctly and clearly explains the different types of sonars out there and all the different types of data they can produce - I realized there was nothing out there that made it easy and clear. I found myself trying to piece together physics principals I hadn’t visited in a while and understand nomenclature that actually was referring to the same things. It was a mess.
So I wrote something that I think anyone can understand. You don’t need an engineering or physics degree to get a sense of the differences and potential benefits.
So here’s a guide to all the different types of sonars and the data they produce:
It took a while to put this together, so please share it. It’s especially useful if you’ve been trying to get friends and fam to understand why you want to buy more toys
I hope the community enjoys it!
