ADVANCED SONAR SENSOR TECHNOLOGY
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
A sonar/hydrophone "coating" on submarines, ships and torpedos would be a great asset to their defense. An aggressive program is proposed to fabricate large area transducer composite panels for hydrophane and sonar use that could be used for such a purpose. This program will develop a high volume fabrication method for piezoelectric rods for composite applications. A functional 1-3 piezoelectric composite panel will be fabricated with a scalable, innovative technique. The test composite will be tested and characterized.
