The acoustics research group's primary research is in Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS), a technique for high-resolution undersea imaging. We design and build our own sonars for collecting field data; so far we have collected data in Lyttelton, Auckland and Sydney. Our research concentrates on fast-reconstruction, interferometry, positioning, simulation, and autofocus.
