Abstract
The document describes an array processor implementation of a new missing-sensor compensation technique for beamforming with linear hydrophone arrays. The new technique is called "FIX", which is an acronym for Fourier Interpolation of eXcitations. FIX uses information from all of the functioning sensors in the array, and its algorithms is independent of the configuration of the missing sensors. Array processors are particularly well suited for performing mathematical operations on vectors and matrices of data. Linear receiving arrays generate large amounts of data which can be conveniently represented in vector form, so the application of array processors to the analysis of the data should prove fruitful. In the document, emphasis is placed on the efficient use of the array processor, and on the utilization of array processor features which allow a dramatic increase in computing speed. TRUNCATED
