Abstract:

The contract entitled High Power Transducers was issued to North American Aviation, Inc. at Columbus, Ohio by USNUSL as the first part of a program to evaluate a 15-foot acoustic Luneberg lens. The first phase is to design, fabricate and test two piezoceramic transducers to radiate 60-100 kw of acoustic power in water at 2.6 to 3.0 kc. North American Aviation, Inc. at Columbus has manufactured the two transducers and evaluated them at NRLs Calibration Station on Lake Seneca during the week of 19-23 April 1965. The results of this investigation are incorporated in this report. The second phase of the program will involve the 15-foot complaint tube Luneberg lens with five transducers in order to demonstrate performance and source levels comparable to the latest submarine sonars. This lens is already in existence and would be supplied by ONR.
