Abstract
The performance of naval systems for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Counter-Torpedo Detection, Classification, and Localization (CTDCL) is limited by the size, power and detection range of current sensor systems. Although current sensors are adequate for current missions, emerging missions and the need for reducing the volume and weight of sonar transducer arrays while improving reliability under high duty cycle conditions prompts the need for the development of innovative very high power, broadband, directional transmitting arrays while reducing the size and weight compared to traditional transducer arrays. The utilization of projector driver materials that can withstand heat extremes and are very durable and have low material sound velocity (to reduce the size of the transducer) will permit the design of highly compact projector arrays that can generate transmit beams that can be electrically steered.
