Fiber Optic Hydrophone Array

The proposed work targets the development of a fiber optic hydrophone array for underwater acoustics detection and recognition, with the potential for applications in national defense. We propose a new concept of using a small-size low-cost fiber optic hydrophone that are nearly undetectable and can be deployed in a dense array across a wide area and depths. The new hydrophone technology will offer a real-time capability and the required dynamic range to detect and track underwater as well as surface vessels. Working closely with the partner organization would help guide the development to meet requirements of real-life applications. Furthermore, the partner organization would participate in marketing research and steps towards commercialization.
