The Diver Detection Sonar (DDS) as a surveillance system has been designed to monitor the threat of underwater attacks against harbours, ships, naval bases, coastal industrial installations, oil platforms etc. This paper describes technical complexity of designing wideband DDS, with increased coverage effectiveness and following additional advantages: improved range resolution, high signal to noise and reverberation ratio and possibility operation of several sonars in the same frequency band using different type of modulation. The article presents technological principles and problems related to the wideband signals transmitting and receiving by cylindrical piezocomposite transducer as well as implementation of the broadband compression technique for correction of frequency distortion.
