Abstract:

The objective of this study was to determine the design characteristics of an advanced sonar unit to be used as an adjunct to Device 14E22 the Generalized Sonar Maintenance Trainer. To accomplish this objective, a study was made of the functional and design characteristics of recently developed sonar systems, sonar design trends, and the state-of-the-art in general electronics. It was concluded that new technology sonars such as the SQQ-23 and SQS-26 series equipments differ significantly from older systems in that they represent the advent of a new era in sonar design, that of the solid-state digital sonar. It was also concluded that an advanced Digital Sonar Maintenance Trainer was needed as an adjunct to Device 14E22 and that such a device would be a valuable asset to sonar school instructors. The report describes the recommended design characteristics of a Digital Sonar Maintenance Trainer DSMT. It is recommended that an experimental model of the device be constructed and evaluated.
