Abstract

The proposed Modular Expansive Spectrum Passive Receiver (MESPR) system is based on Modern COTS-based data acquisition and high-speed serializer/deserializer (SerDes) communication technologies to realize a receiver architecture that is adaptable to a wide range of frequencies and sensor configurations (conformal, planar, line, and volumetric arrays etc.) while maintaining effective size, power, and cost metrics.  The program aims to establish a baseline design for MESPR by leveraging COTS-based electronics and commercially available interface systems. The objective for the proposed work is to establish a modular approach that allows the main elements to remain largely unaltered across a range of applications with various frequencies of interest, hydrophone geometries, ceramic materials, and applications. The system will leverage advanced system on chip processing technologies and benefit from application and compatibility with emerging sensor technologies such as QorTek’s TX101 textured ceramic
