Abstract

Image Acoustics will work with their subcontractor to design and prototype a 3-inch countermeasure system which uses two transducers. The proposed low frequency 3-inch diameter transducer achieves the desired response that previously required a 6-inch diameter transducer. The design of this 3-inch transducer originally used single crystal piezoelectric material, but with advancements in textured ceramics and design modifications of the shell, it should be possible to achieve desired performance goals with the lower cost textured ceramic. A newer alternative design of the higher frequency transducer is also presented.
