Abstract:

A transducer array release and pressure compensation system for releasing a nose cone assembly from a cylindrical housing so as to deploy a plurality of transducer elements and pressure compensate the transducer elements. When hydrostatic pressure is applied to a bladder located within the nose cone assembly, the bladder pulls a release cable so as to release a split ring which secures the nose cone assembly to the cylindrical housing. The application of hydrostatic pressure to the bladder forces air from the nose cone assembly through a compensator airline to the transducer elements so as to pressure compensate the transducer elements.
