Abstract : Tests were conducted to determine the hydrodynamic characteristics of a full-scale XU-1245 Variable-Depth-Transducer Housing designed by the U.S. Navy Underwater Sound Laboratory. The towing characteristics were observed to be satisfactory over a speed range from 0 to 12 knots. The pressure-compensating device provided for the transducer appeared to operate satisfactorily. Computer studies, based on measurements of towline angle and tension, indicate that the housing will meet the design requirements for speed and towing depth at sea. (Author)
