Abstract:

The Portsmouth Acoustic Radiation Measurement Basin PARMB provides a facility for performing overside acoustical sound surveys on year-round basis and can operate 24 hours a day. Ample shore power is available for both fleet type and nuclear submarines. Extremely quiet ambient noise levels 55-60 DB re 0.0002 Dynessq Cm exist in the water at the basin. Isolation of this facility from the rest of the Shipyard and normal ship traffic offers ideal conditions for submarine sound testing.
