Abstract

In the paper, we investigate the effect of the total number of sensors on the localization performance in a shallow water area. The source localization performance is evaluated by using the White Noise Constraint (WNC) matching field processing (MFP) algorithm in this paper. The obtained results demonstrate that the quantity of the sensors influences on the accuracy of the localization performance that is estimated for the case of the fixed target as well as for the case of the moving one. The effect of the amount of the sensors studied on this paper can be used as guidelines to design sensor arrays in a particular shallow water area for a passive sonar system.
