A julia package for Aeroacoustics and acoustic imaging.
This package provide methods for working with microphone array measurements. Utilities for processing beamforming and other acoustic imaging methods are collected in this package, and it is the intention, that a suite of both well-known and state of the art methods is continuously updated.
The current set of methods include conventional frequency domain beamforming (CBF) with source power integration (SPI), and the following advanced methods:

Additional methods can also be added by contributors to this repository. The code structure enables an easy and modular addition of new methods.
Denoising of the cross-spectral matrix is another important part of succesful acoustic imaging. Several different methods are on the roadmap to be implemented.
Source integration of acoustic images is another important feature of this package. The output can be produced in narrow-band, 1/3rd or 1/12th octave bands.

Contributions are welcome! Issues are tracked on Github issue tracker. If you want to add an new algorithm, you can fork this package and start developing your code and test it.
Another noteworthy library for microphone array measurements is Acoular, written in Python. AeroAcoustics.jl draws inspiration from Acoular but focusses only on the processing of measurement data, while Acoular also has functionality for generating simulated data.
