Light Weight Array Technologies

Introduction

Under this research programme new towed array technologies suitable for operation from Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) and Un-manned Surface Vehicles (USV) are proposed to be developed. Such a system would aid multiple AUVs and USVs in many underwater surveillance and Imaging applications. Two technologies are being explored

1) Arrays employing ceramic hydrophone based sensing technology

2) Arrays based on fiber laser sensor based hydrophones

Apart from shear engineering challenges in realising such an small array configuration, there are many technical and scientific questions that remains to be answered in order to understand the performance envelope and usability of a such a system for underwater applications. Our research efforts are towards characterising the array performance against many interfering noises such as electronic noise, flow noise and vibration.
