In this work, we develop an underwater echosounder and use the standard target method to calibrate the performance of the device. In the calibration experiments, a solid tungsten carbide sphere of 38mm diameter is used as a standard target for calibrating a HPCTB-200-35 echosounder (manufactured by Hangzhou Applied Acoustics Research Institute) with a working frequency of 220 kHz. Further, the measurement data and uncertainty are presented and analyzed; these results demonstrate that the standard target method can calibrate the combined transmitting-receiving response of echosounders effectively. In our calibration experiment, the combined transmitting-receiving response of HPCTB-200-35 is about 33.8 dB, and the measurement uncertainty is about 1.0 dB (k = 2).
