The researchers trained a dolphin to investigate it’s surroundings using sound pulses (clicks), then they recorded the echoes the dolphin receives back and extracted object shape data from it.

They then subsequently built a biomimetic sonar system which they believe could lead to better, more compact, and higher resolution sonar imaging technologies than what’s currently available.
