A Sonic Pulsed Altimeter was researched and designed in response to the need for an inexpensive altimeter to aid bush pilots to land in calm lake conditions where conventional altimeters cannot operate, or are too expensive. The design specifications for this sonic altimeter was a range of 0 - 40m, with a resolution of 30cm, using a 10kHz pulsed wave.
