Abstract: In order to meet the expanding applications of side-scan sonar and improvement of more users' requirement, some hydrography standards were published by International Hydrographic Organization and the world's developed countries one after another. For the purposes of improvement of Chinese specifications for side-scan sonar survey, the comparison of system detection capability, survey lines plan, data acquisition requirements, quality control and other measurements were studied in detail. And the problems and weakness of Chinese specifications for side-scan sonar survey were analyzed.It points out the weakness of China's specifications for side scan sonar in the measurement line layout, data acquisition requirements, etc., in order to promote the realization of China's measurement standards as soon as possible with international standards.

Key words: side-scan sonar, standards, specifications
