Tomographic Ocean Surveillance
Tomographic image reconstruction, a technique developed in the medical and other areas, could provide a new approach to ocean surveillance. The basic ideas of tomography are presented, with a description of how available measurements in sonar are appropriate for the technique. The ideas are applied to two germane problems: noise mapping and localization.
