Sonar Technology and Hydroacustics with Piezo Transducers

Piezoceramic components are used in sonar technology and hydroacoustic systems, for measuring and position-finding tasks especially in maritime applications.

The development of high-resolution sonar systems, which was driven by military applications, is now increasingly being replaced by civil applications.

 

Underwater Communication with Ultrasound

Apart from still used submarine positioning sonars, systems are implemented for depth measurements, for locating shoals of fish, for subsurface relief surveying in shallow waters or for underwater communication.

A wide range of piezoceramics is used for different applications, ranging from the simple disk or plate and stacked transducers to sonar arrays, which make it possible to achieve a linear deflection of the directional characteristic of the ultrasonic wave.
