Abstract:

The design of an underwater device to measure sea noise to depths of about 12,000 feet is required. It is desired that the recording equipment be contained in a body to be launched from ships that sink to a prescribed depth, stay there during the recording time interval and rise to the surface after recording. The body sends a homing signal and is recovered by the ship. This memorandum presents the results of an analysis of design requirements for the proposed hydrodynamic body. The analysis indicates that a simple and relatively light body can be designed to meet the requirements. The proposed body has a double hull with the inner hull containing the instruments being resistant to the hydrostatic pressures. The outer hull is used for hydrodynamic considerations and to provide the driving and release weights.
