Abstract
The objective of this program is to utilize single crystal piezoelectrics to develop a platform which contains both transmission and receiving for acoustic tracking ranges with the ability to operate at great depths undersea. The key aspects addressed in Phase I are 1) showing the performance of single crystal at high pressures, 2) determining heat generation within the crystal for a high duty cycle, 3) modeling to show performance capabilities in both transmit and receive and 4) building of a transmit prototype for comparison with models. TRS and Ultra Electronics Ocean Systems will leverage their unique experience and collaborate to demonstrate the capabilities of the devices.
