Abstract:

A wireless hydrophone system includes a hydrophone joined to a preamplifier. A serial AD converter receives the amplified hydrophone signal and provides a serial digital output representative of the signal. The AD converter is joined to a processor which provides a start signal and a clock signal to the AD converter. A digital transmitter is also controlled by the processor. The transmitter receives the serial digital output from the AD converter for wireless transmission over an antenna. The system can also include logic for allowing the processor to provide an extended sync signal for transmission. The extended sync signal can alert a receiver to an initial transmission. The system can be incorporated in a hull treatment for positioning on a vessels hull.
