Abstract:

The goal of this project is to assess the viability of non-traditional underwater acoustic projectors for applications in which high-fidelity or complex transmitted waveforms are not required. Underwater acoustic transduction is dominated devices based on piezoelectric and magnetostrictive drives. This project is intended to assess electro-mechanically motor driven approaches for non-critical applications.
