The objective of this report is to discuss the high-level transmit-receive TR switch system and associated problems encountered with a high-power multiple-element sonar system. The results of the investigation of various methods of performing the function of a high-power TR switch are presented and discussed. The functions of a high-level TR switching system are 1 Connect the transmitter to the transducer and isolate the receiver from the transmitter signal during the transmit interval. 2 Connect the receiver to the transducer and isolate the receiver from the transmitter circuitry during the receive interval. 3 Withstand effects of instances of abnormal conditions such as 1 the transmit switch opening and closing during the transmit interval, 2 receive switch closing and opening during the transmit cycle, and 3 an underwater explosion initiating abnormal voltages at the transducer input.
