Abstract:

TRS Technologies, Inc. and Nothrop Grumman Undersea Systems (NGUS) propose to develop and test a single crystal sonar array that adds transmit capability to the currently proposed receive array for the Virginia-class submarine. The goal of this program will be to adapt the added capability to the current form factor, thereby getting maximum return for minimal modifications and interface changes. Based on Phase I results in which the prototype transducer achieved up to 20 dB more source level than current transmit elements with less volume, the array should see similar improvements. TRS will fabricate PMN-PT transducers to populate two quarter panels of the current array shell. Testing will be performed by NGUS and will include transmit and receive response, beam patterns and power linearity testing.
