SPEED SENSORS FOR HIGH-SPEED SURFACE SHIPS
High-speed advanced surface ships require either water or ground speed sensing for navigation and ship control purposes. Since these ships, in general, either do not have contact or have only limited contact with the surface over which they move, they require a remote speed sensing capability. This paper summarizes the principles of operation and analyzes the capabilities of several types of remote speed sensors which might be applied to the requirements of high-speed advanced surface ships. Remote sensors considered here include interial, doppler, and correlation types using radiated sonic or electromagnetic beams producing scattered return from the surface.
