Abstract:

Broadly, the objective of this report is to analyze and develop design parameters for hydroacoustic types of transducers for use in a wide range of low frequency, active surveillance systems or as active adjuncts to existing or planned passive receiving systems. A wide range of frequencies 50 to 1000 Hz and source levels for individual transducers 195-219 dB re 1 uPa at 1 m are covered. Parametric relationships over these ranges are developed. These include size, weight, cost, output power and input power.
