Abstract Article is devoted to synthetic aperture image construction for multichannel side-scan sonar system. Synthetic aperture processing algorithm that predicts the phase of reflected signal is described. New autofocus method for elaboration of carrier trajectory is proposed. Technical solutions for improvement of hardware-software complex “Sintez” and increase of reliability of coherent collection and accumulation of multichannel data are developed and partially implemented basing on the result of experiments conducted in sea environment. Modeling software complex and results of processing of real and model data are described.
