Abstract:

A DIGITAL UNDERWATER SOUND DETECTION SYSTEM FOR SMART MINES USING SAW RESONATOR BASED SENSORS IS PROPOSED. THE ADVANTAGES ARE LARGE DYNAMIC RANGE, SENSITIVITY MINUS 180 DB RE 1 V/MPA, 16 PLUS BIT ACCURACY, SMALL SIZE AND LOW COST, AND A DIGITAL OUTPUT WITHOUT ANALOGTO-DIGITAL CONVERTERS. THESE ADVANTAGES ENABLE THE SAW SENSOR TO MEET ALL OF THE REQUIREMENTS OF SMART MINE SENSORS. THE PROPOSED STUDY (PHASE I) WILL PROVIDE A DETAILED DESIGN OF SAW SENSOR FOR UNDERWATER SOUND DETECTION. A DIGITAL CMOS SPECTRUM ANALYZER WILL BE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE SIGNATURE ANALYSIS AND TARGET CHARACTERIZATION. A BASELINE SENSOR ARRAY SYSTEM WILL BE SIMULATED TO VERIFY SYSTEM PERFORMANCE AND ANALYZE OPERATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS IN TERMS OF SMART MINE REQUIREMENTS. HARDWARE IMPLEMENTATION AND TESTING WILL BE PERFORMED IN PHASE II OF THE PROJECT.
