Matched filter, receiving beam-forming apparatus and sonar system

Image Number 13 for United States Patent #6839303.

A received beam-forming apparatus is disclosed is which echo signals received by multiple ultrasonic transducer elements arranged in a linear form are sampled at a specific scanning frequency to obtain sample data. A receiving beam-forming apparatus includes a memory which stores the sample data derived from multiple scanning cycles; and a beamformer which divides the multiple ultrasonic transducer elements into multiple blocks, reads out the sample data derived from different scanning cycles for the individual blocks from said memory, and forms a receiving beam in a specific direction using the individual sample data which have been read out. A sonar system using the receiving-beam forming apparatus is also disclosed as is a matched filter which selects an arc-shaped part of an ultrasonic transducer element array.
