Abstract

Intelligent sensors for underwater acoustic applications are detection techniques that discriminate between the acoustic pressure wave field such that a manipulation of these waves can be performed. This is in contrast to smart vibration sensors that detect the modal or displacement characteristics of a structure. Intelligent sensors can characterize an acoustic pressure field into individual field components for signal processing purposes.
