A new correlation sonar velocity sensor (COVELIA)

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper presents the motivation for the design and development of an entirely new, correlation sonar velocity sensor aimed specifically at the rapidly maturing market for AUV platforms and associated instrumentation. The chosen implementation places particular emphasis on producing a product with very high accuracy, vector velocity output which is maintained down to zero speed and when operated in a hover manoeuvre. Other essential features of the sonar are its small size and low power budget. Following discussion of the features, advantages and proposed uses of the new velocity log, computer simulations of system performance are described which support the choice of primary design parameters. Finally, a description is given of the developed hardware system which is suitable for fitting to AUV platforms.
