Compact Single Crystal Omnidirectional Acoustic Source for Countermeasures
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
TRS proposes to develop a countermeasures transducer of approximate spherical shape from single crystal piezoelectrics from one of two designs. Using the advantages of different crystal modes, TRS can leverage knowledge from similar programs based on cylinders to produce small, high power and broadband projectors with uniform vertical and horizontal beam patterns. We will develop both the acoustic modeling and fabrication techniques and fixtures in Phase I, and build and test a prototype to demonstrate acoustic performance in water.
