Underwater sound localization system

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #5570324.

A control system connected to a passive underwater transducer array is located remotely from the array, e.g. above the surface of the water, to localize an underwater source of acoustic energy in a relatively simple manner by introducing listener-motion, such as head turning or body motion of a listener, into the sound localization process and does so without any underwater mechanical linkage of any kind. This is achieved by a pair of listener-motion coupled potentiometers, referred to as mixing-pots, located at the site of the listener, being connected to the outputs of an array of passive acoustic transducers, with the two outputs of the mixing-pots being coupled to a pair of headphones worn by the listener.
