Abstract:

This report deals with the design, construction and performance characteristics of an acoustic circular mobile array. A two-dimensional horizontal array provides not only directivity against vertical reverberation, but also, azimuthal directivity to give bearing information. Included in the report are the physical dimensions of the array, the special cable and special electronics developed for the array, and a comparison of the measured beam widths and array gain with the theoretical ones.
