Abstract:

There is thus a need for cymbal arrays which are sufficiently flexible to be mounted onto the curved hulls of underwater vehicles. It is further required that such arrays be sufficiently flexible to be conformed to surfaces exhibiting complex curves, such as bow or nose cone surfaces, which curve around the axis of the UUV and also curve from the outer portion of the hull to the axis of the hull at the center of the nose cone. An object of the invention is, therefore, to provide a cymbal array for mounting on curved hull portions of underwater vehicles.
