Abstract
TRS Technologies and the Applied Research Laboratory at Penn State propose to build on high frequency (>100 kHz) single crystal, 1-3 composite projector work developed in the Phase I program for sonar in unmanned vehicles. The high bandwidth exhibited by the composite, and potential for increased source level could greatly improve data collection, while limiting impact on vehicle volume. In the Phase II effort, TRS proposes to further optimize design for very high power operation and build and test a full array to demonstrate the potential of the composite design. The ability to operate the array in tension will provide significant benefits in design and drive.
