Abstract:

The report describes a preliminary instrumentation design for obtaining range information between vessels or between a vessel and a shore station. Development models were built and tested, but the project was terminated before a final design evolved. This instrumentation is used in conjunction with the UQC underwater telephone apparatus normally installed aboard submarines. Operation is in the transponder mode rather than as an echo ranging system. The range of measurement is from 0 to 2000 or more yd, depending on the sensitivity of the companion UQC and the strength of the received signal. Full-scale indication on the digital readout is 10,000 yd. The instrumentation is fully transistorized and requires a minimum of connections to the UQC. Author
