Abstract: This paper describes the design of a wideband spatial processor for the detection of a straight-line object by an ultrasonic pulse-echo detection system. An ultrasonic pulse is transmitted from the transducer and the two wavelets diffracted from the two end points of the straight-line object are received by three spatially separated receivers. Three stages of signal processing are carried out. At the first stage, the mother wavelet operator generates three sets of two-dimensional wavelet coefficients. At the second stage, cross wavelet transforms are performed on wavelet coefficients obtained in the first stage. At the third stage, cross wavelet transforms are performed on cross wavelet coefficients obtained in the second stage. As a result of this three-stage operation, a high-resolution image of the environment is generated and the range and bearing of the two end points of the straight-line object are obtained. A simulation program is developed to investigate the processing algorithm in an ultrasonic detection environment
