Optimization of a device for detecting and measuring parameters of amplitude modulation of underwater noise emission of seagoing vessels

Ocean Acoustics. Hydroacoustics


We describe the results of optimizing a device that detects and measures the modulation parameters of the broadband noise of seagoing vessels caused by rotation of the propeller screw under cavitation conditions and pitching or rolling. Software implementation of this device is presented.
