Abstract:

A linear acoustic array for use in oceanographic work in either a towed or a vertically suspended configuration utilizes a flexible cable in which strands are woven or braided into a tube, the strands of which can be separated sufficiently to insert a hydrophone and multiplexer assembly at each of a plurality of specified locations there along. Each hydrophone and multiplexer assembly is adapted to be readily connected into or removed from a two wire system. Author
