The PURVIS I tests are part of the CP ConformalPlanar Sonar Development Program being conducted under the direction of the U.S. Navy, Bureau of Ships. The sea test program is designed to provide information required for technical decisions on the CP Sonar Program. The destroyer USS HUGH PURVIS DD-709 was instrumented for the PURVIS I series, and tests were conducted during February and March 1966 in the Tongue of the Ocean TOTO. The water depth was in excess of 500 fathoms for all acoustic tests. A second series of tests, PURVIS II, will be conducted during the summer of 1966. The purpose of this interim report is to provide some preliminary acoustic data from the PURVIS I tests.
