Abstract
The Research and Development effort proposed by Hydroacoustics Inc (HAI) will determine the feasibility of applying new technologies to a Very Low Frequency (VLF) transducer design thereby extending its performance to meet the new requirements of Acoustic Augmentation Support Program (AASP). These new technologies include, but are not limited to, developing a the largest transducer consistent with the installation space, exploring material alternatives for the VLF transducer, reviewing new hydraulic valve technologies, seeking more effective means to couple the hydraulic power to the acoustic medium, studying pump and motor designs to reduce the noise generated by the hydraulic power supply while in the stand-by mode, and applying new digital electronics to monitor and control the transducer performance. The HAI math model for the HLF transducer will be used to estimate the performance of the new VLF transducer design, and the historical HAI data will be used to estimate the manufacturing time and cost.
