Abstract:

The facility is envisioned as a testbed for three basic categories of nonlinear acoustic experiments 1 basic conceptual experiments using existing or easily assembled transducers, 2 tests of existing Naval hardware to determine the feasibility of incorporating nonlinear modes into normally linear systems, and 3 tests of prototype hardware being developed for Naval applications. This final report describes the completed Phase I instrumentation for the nonlinear sonar testbed. The equipment includes two 40 W drivers, two 4 kW power amplifiers transmitters, two 15 kW power amplifiers, two signal generator channels, one receiver system with preamplifiers, filters, storage oscilloscope, sampling digital voltmeter, and tone burst-timing generator gates all are shown in block diagrams and photographs.
