Abstract : Expertise and specialized facilities in the field of underwater acoustic transducer RDT and E available in the Naval Research Laboratory are described. The categories are personnel expertise (radiation theory, mathematical models, active materials, passive materials, transducers for RDT and E, standardization, calibration metrology, calibration systems, and at-sea operation), resources in facilities and instrumentation (USNS HAYES, USNS MIZAR, calibration facilities, acoustic research tanks, ocean RDT and E transducers, standard and related transducers), and special area resources, which include high-power transducers (theory and models, materials, fabrication, system engineering, test and evaluation) and near-field theory and techniques.
