Abstract:

The Acoustic Range Measuring System ARMS, with a range capability of 5330 yd, has been developed for radiated-noise trials. This system deter mines range by measuring the transit time of an acoustic pulse traveling from a submarine to a receiving hydrophone. The use of synchronized clocks requires the acoustic pulse to travel only one way, thus resulting in greater range capability. ARMS has been used on several radiated-noise trials with good results.
