Abstract
STANDARD TOADS CRYSTALS DO NOT PERFORM CONSISTENTLY AT LOW OVERPRESSURES DUE IN PART TO LOW SIGNAL OUTPUT OF THE PZT CRYSTAL AND ALSO DUE TO ELECTRICAL CROSSTALK. WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE TWO TOA TRANSDUCER TYPES THAT ARE PROVEN CONCEPTS IN OTHER APPLICATIONS. WE WILL DESIGN TECHNICIAN FRIENDLY INTERFACES FOR THESE MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS. THE PHASE I DESIGN WILL INTERFACE WITH STANDARD TOADS III RECORDERS. RECOMMENDATIONS WILL BE MADE FOR A NEW TECHNOLOGY RECORDER FOR PHASE II. PARTICULAR ATTENTION WILL BE GIVEN TO HIGH SIGNAL OUTPUT SYSTEMS AND NOISE FREE METHODS OF DATA TRANSMISSION.
