The aim in this brief final chapter is to summarise the major conclusions. Until recently, the output of a DF system was usually thought of as a single number, the indicated bearing of the target transmitter. Traditionally, the wave-field, no matter how complex, was interpreted in terms of a one-ray field, with the ray arriving from a constant azimuth. The need to achieve mode resolution with WADF's of reasonable aperture (a few wavelengths) implies that the benefits of time-sampling as well as space-sampling must be incorporated in the processing scheme.
