Title: Recommended Practice for Assessing Errors in Synthetic Aperture Sonar Due to Position Uncertainty

Scope: This recommended practice describes how the accuracy, precision, and systematic errors in the position estimates of a synthetic aperture sonar system affect the accuracy, precision, biases, and resolution performance at the output of beamforming and other high-resolution synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) techniques. This recommended practice includes an open-source component with data and source code, including code that reproduces the technical results used to derive the recommended practice. The open-source component includes simulation code that describes the impact of position errors to the system point spread function.
