Type A advanced passive hydrophone
Type A is an advanced passive hydrophone with the capability to detect underwater threats across the frequency range (2Hz to 100kHz). Its state-of-the-art BaTiO3 perovskite composition along with its self-hardened polyester covering allows for high degrees of sensitivity along with mass deployment scalability dynamics.
Balancing sensitivity, the uncertainty of measurement, and frequency dependence at a scalable level
The current state-of-the-art hydrophone technologies (piezoelectric, electrostatic, magnetostrictive, moving magnet/coil) face a pressing trade-off on how to balance the degrees of sensitivity and uncertainty of measurement, all at a cost that could enable mass deployment opportunities.
Compact circular (R=30 mm) sensing element size
Linear range: 2Hz to 100kHz ±2dB
Survival Depth: 300m
In situ digitization and amplification circuit option for utilization of the complete acoustic sensing data created
Operating temperature range: -10°C to +80°C
Ready to deploy and connect to an onshore laptop via Audio-jack
VERTICAL DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
Innovating on the sensing element and packaging components
Type A is designed and developed at the SOTIRIA lab to fit critical underwater Defense and Security missions. The innovation is composed of the novel sensing element configuration, the tailored, in-situ digitization and amplification circuit as well as the water-proof covering which allows for easy on-the-field deployment.
AI CONNECTION READY
Type A is built to easily connect via Audio-jack to an on-shore laptop, where the acoustic data are ingested in SOTIRIA Technology’s Dioptre. There they are processed with custom Machine Learning algorithms for improved levels of sensing, detection, and classification.
WHY TRUST TYPE Α™
Easy to deploy and maintain
State of the art performance
By using Type A, low to high displacement underwater threats (divers, UUVs, vessels) can be sensed, detected and recognized in real time.
