We present a computational methodology for retrieving the shape of an impenetrable obstacle from the knowledge of some acoustic far-field patterns. This methodology is based on the well-known regularized Newton algorithm, but distinguishes itself from similar optimization procedures by (a) a frequency-aware multi-stage solution strategy, (b) a computationally efficient usage of the exact sensitivities of the far-field pattern to the specified shape parameters, and (c) a numerically scalable domain decomposition method for the fast solution of three-dimensional direct acoustic scattering problems. We illustrate the salient features and highlight the performance characteristics of the proposed computational methodology with the solution on a parallel processor of various inverse mockup submarine problems.
