Projector TP16 and Arrays

Despite its low operating frequency from 12 kHz onwards, MMT TP16 projector is only about 24 mm thick in bare, unpackaged form. Its compact size, extremely broad bandwidth and power efficiency make TP16 ideal for wide-band communication and imaging sonar. This includes imaging of buried objects, particularly as conformal sonar arrays on AUV/UUV and other similar platforms.

Key Features

  • Compact (only 24mm in thickness in bare, unpackaged form)
  • Low-frequency wide-band imaging (fundamental mode: 16± 4 kHz)
  • Wide-band communication (12-52 kHz operating frequency range)
  • Power efficient (180 dB source level per element at 20W without d.c. bias)
