A towed array of hydrophone modules employs bladders that are mounted to the bulkheads at the ends of the hose sections. The bladders are configured and pressurized so that pressure waves produced by the oscillatory motion of the bulkhead are suppressed by the bladders thereby significantly diminishing noise due to the breathing waves.
