Abstract : The patent describes an underwater acoustic device comprising in combination an annular support member, a vacuum backed circular piezoelectric plate mounted on said support member, and a substantially mechanically rigid wall element mounted on said support member. It forms with the front face of said plate an enclosure, and an acoustic energy propagating liquid fills the free space within said enclosure, said liquid at all times being under a pressure no greater than atmospheric but not less than the vapor pressure of said liquid at the temperature of the water in which the device is to be used.
