Abstract:

An improved sea bottom classifier device configured for use with a towed underwater vehicle is described. Operating on the same basic principles as earlier models, but including several refinements, the device provides a relative indication of sea bottom hardness. Some preliminary sea test results are given along with a detailed discussion of the circuits of the improved device.
