The difference frequency sound field from two concentric but misaligned, axisymmetric, planar transducers in a nondissipative and nondispersive medium is developed as a special case of the general theory [Garrett et al., J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 75, 769–779 (1984)]. Effects of misalignment of pump, source, and hydrophone on the performance of the parametric receiving array are quantified in numerical examples. These include the effect of interaction in the nearfields of both pump and source transducers. The results show that the best performance is obtained for good alignment, high pump frequency, and placement of the hydrophone within or not far from the source nearfield.

Observed limiting cases of horizontal field coherence and array performance in a time-varying internal wavefield Collis, Jon M.; Duda, Timothy F.; Lynch, James F.; DeFerrari, Harry A. (Acoustical Society of America, 2008-08-28)Using a moored source and horizontal/vertical line array combination, horizontal coherence properties of high signal to noise ratio (>=20 dB) 100–1600 Hz signals have been measured. Internal waves in the area of the ...

Performance analysis of adaptive equalization for coherent acoustic communications in the time-varying ocean environment Preisig, James C. (Acoustical Society of America, 2005-07)Equations are derived for analyzing the performance of channel estimate based equalizers. The performance is characterized in terms of the mean squared soft decision error of each equalizer. This error is decomposed into ...
