Applications of ultrasound started as underwater detection systems. Sound navigation and ranging (SONAR) systems were developed after the Titanic sank in 1912 and, during World Wars I and II, for submarine navigation. Pulsed echo ultrasound was developed as metal flaw detectors for integrity of metal hulls of large ships and tanks. The history of ultrasound was related to tragedies in those days.
