Abstract:

A towed array includes an array of N hydrophone groups and one or more non-acoustic sensor modules structurally connected in-line with the array of hydrophone groups. The hydrophone groups and non-acoustic sensor modules are coupled to a common data transmission line. Each of the hydrophone groups defines a portion of an acoustic aperture occupying a specified length of the towed array. Each non-acoustic sensor module has a length that is n times the specified length where n is a whole number multiple of the total number of hydrophone groups.
