In the underwater environment, high resolution can be achieved in the range direction by transmitting and receiving a signal of a particular band and/or waveform. The design of a transmit signal used in the active sonar is very important in order to detect a cylindrical object within a short distance less than 1 km, which is the detection distance of this paper. Designing a transmit signal optimal to a sonar requires appropriate selection of its center frequency and bandwidth, which allows the maximum detection distance of a sonar. In this paper, in terms of maximizing echo excess and signal to noise ratio (SNR), optimum frequency analysis is carried out under various conditions of diverse parameters. In addition, the investigation focused on the determinating a bandwidth is also performed for the purpose of satisfying the performance requirement of range resolution and azimuth resolution.
