An engineering approach is presented for the top down design of synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) systems. The principal system parameters and the equations governing their relations will be identified. The difference between the variables and the equations determines the number of free variables, which can be selected either arbitrarily or according to the system requirements. Some simple rules will be stated, and by example it will be shown how to apply the design steps.
