Sonar expert witnesses are experienced with sonar technology in relation to undersea exploration, as the term refers to a process of utilizing sound as a means of navigation and/or detecting objects found in underwater spaces. Sonar expert consulting may therefore be utilized for cases involving such issues as architectural acoustics and noise control, deep-water origin and cause investigations, fire and explosion investigations, and other issues related to noise and underwater disciplines.
Sonar expert witnesses often have experience with acoustical engineering, electrical engineering and electrical devices, sound transmission, sound quality, automotive engineering, architectural engineering, and acoustical engineering, among other aspects of the engineering field, each of which may be relevant to a lawsuit involving the use of sonar technology.
Sonar expert witnesses may be asked to provide an expert opinion based on the findings of a failure analysis of an underwater-related incident. Such incidents may involve diving, bombs, hazardous materials, ROV (remote operated vehicle) operations, NASA, and/or security issues. Sonar may also be utilized for recovery and rescue operations, investigating the origin of fires in burned sunken vessels, and obtaining evidence with underwater still and video documentation. Sonar expert witnesses may also assess a crime scene involving boating fires or other subjects of marine investigation.
