Abstract : A magnetic coupler and the use of such couplers to place a plurality of electroacoustic transducers around a lengthy single conductor trunk cable is described. The magnetic couplers are used to place the electroacoustic transducers in any randomly selected configuration. They allow the use of a single conductor trunk cable so as to facilitate the deployment of the system at a relatively low cost. (Author)
