Abstract The search for a panoramic, real-time, high frequency sonar has been a major goal for operating ranges where optical systems have established limitations. HYPSON 400 meets such requirements and provides a simultaneous and continuous beam-forming, no-scanning, wide opening system, using a hybrid beam-forming technique allowed by new component technologies. Up to seven images per second can be formed at a range of 100 meters, and more at shorter distances, as allowed by the speed of sound, thus providing the highest possible rate of information renewal required by operations at sea.
