Sonar dome deflection measurements were performed on the new monolithic sonar dome of the USS RADFORD in Oct. - Dec. 1997. Over 700 Mbytes of raw data from 22 environmental sensors and 128 displacement sensors were obtained. The at-sea data acquisition was highly successful with data collected over sea states 1 through 4, and for numerous ship speeds up to 31 knots. The analysis of this data has provided a more complete characterization of previously measured sonar dome deformations. Many new conclusions and observations on sonar dome behavior have been observed and correlated with ship motions.
