Single Crystal Transducer Technology for Undersea Tracking Ranges
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
This project will provide the research and design for the application of single crystal lead magnesium niobate-lead titanate (PMN-PT) to undersea current and next-generation tracking range transducer requirements to provide the transmit and receive functionality required to monitor and track vehicles operating on Navy ranges. Current state-of-the-art piezo-electric ceramic transducers are limited by depth, bandwidth, and life cycle. An improved transducer based on single crystal technology could reduce the quantity of range instrumentation required since this is dependent largely on the bandwidth of the sensors.
