Etrema is developing an acoustic projector that provides broad bandwidth, high source level, directional output, high duty cycle, and high reliability in a compact package. Specific objectives of the Phase II effort are: demonstrate performance of a prototype projector, optimize the full-scale projector design, and demonstrate performance of the full-scale projector. Fabrication and testing of the full-scale hardware will demonstrate its readiness for transition to the fleet. Etrema plans to partner with Ultra Electronics Ocean Systems in the development of the Vector Projector. Advantages of the proposed work will be a high power, high duty cycle, directional acoustic projector that meets requirements for ASW and CTDCL missions.
