Abstract
As the Navy moves toward composite material solutions for sonar system dome development and non-steel hull materials, there will be an increased need for embedding sensors on the surface of these structures. In particular, as the Navy develops new and improved aluminum hull structures and/or composite sonar domes, there is an opportunity to integrate low cost conformal sensor arrays on both these surfaces, thereby improving overall sonar system performance. There is also a need to be able to repair these systems in order to maintain overall USW performance.
