Source Level (SL) of Ping Single-beam Echosounder


For some simulation-based calculations, I need to know the source level (SL) of the Ping single-beam echosounder. Is there a way to calculate it, without using the active SONAR equation?


Hi @abubakrazam, welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

I don’t expect that’s possible without measured data from experiments, or a detailed analysis of the acoustic properties of the transducer design, neither of which are available at this point.

We have plans to measure and release a beam profile, but there’s also no fixed date on when that will be complete.
