Abstract:

A high power sonar pulse generator driven by a low power electrical motor wherein a flywheel, placed in the mechanical system, connects the small motor and large generator is required only intermittently, the energy stored in the rotating flywheel allows a small motor to effectively drive the large output pulse generator while a braking effect on the flywheel is used to vary the sonar impulse producing an advantageous FM glide.
