QorTek/USSI’s proposal for Navy SBIR Topic N181-020 High Power, Low Frequency Textured PMN-PT Underwater Projector will focus is a new Hybrid Cymbal Transducer (HCT) design functioning in a new large form factor that is form-fit capable of being air-deployed in an A-Size Sonobuoy size. The central objective of the program is to demonstrate the underwater performance of the new optimized HCT design incorporating the latest in advanced textured PMN-PT materials as a direct replacement for traditional PZT builds. In particular, it will be demonstrated at both model and hardware level that HCT design is effective over low frequency range where it provides a minimum improvement of 10dB in SPL acoustic energy output over legacy designs.
