Abstract:

The BQR-2 DIMUS was designed to be used as a backfit to the Navy BQR-2B sonar system with the 48 signal inputs of the DIMUS bridged across the outputs of the BQR-2B hydrophone preamplifiers. The overall sound pressure sensitivity of the BQR-2B hydrophones and preamplifier combined is -20 db re 1 vdyne. A hydrophone and preamplifier combination for use with the DIMUS on FLIP must provide an equivalent sensitivity. For the most economical approach to the problem of providing hydrophones for use on FLIP, it is proposed that 48 hydrophones be assembled by salvage and reuse of components that will be available from cannabilization of hydrophones which were used in the ALBACORE DIMUS DIMUS V array.
