Abstract

A beamforming system (ASY) comprises a modular transducer assembly (MTA) composed of a plurality of transducer modules (TM1, TM2, TM3). A transducer module comprises a plurality of interfaces having different geometrical orientations. An interface allows the transducer module to be physically coupled to another transducer module. In a reconnaissance phase, the beamforming system identifies transducer modules that are present in the modular transducer assembly (MTA). The beamforming system further identifies a structure in accordance with which the transducer modules have been physically coupled to each other. In a configuration phase, the beamforming system defines a signal relationship between the transducer modules on the basis of identification data that has been obtained in the reconnaissance phase and a desired directional response pattern.
