Abstract:

The purpose of this calibration was to examine the farfield beam pattern of an acoustic array which weighed 1,836 lbs in air. Calculations showed that a source to receiver distance of at least 77 m was required to provide the farfield output of the measured array. This range requirement and weight burden demanded new methods compared to the established calibration methods used by MPL to date.
