Abstract
A sonobuoy system based on a fiber optic vector hydrophone (FOVH) is demonstrated. Phase Generated Carrier– Arctangent (PGC-ATAN) demodulation algorithm was used to acquire real-time underwater acoustic signals. After the optimal design of the laser configuration, the background noise of the FOVH is -104.3dB re radHz at 1 kHz, with an acceleration sensitivity of 41.5dB re rad/g which allows the system detecting signals at DSS0. The theoretical derivation of FOVH directivity is proposed and the design criterion is discussed. The ratio of the minimum to the maximum amplitude of the FOVH directivity is -35dB by symmetrical structure design of the FOVH. A lake trial shows that the maximum detection range of the sonobuoy system is more than 15km for an acoustic signal of 210dB re μPa, and the bearing of a moving target can be estimated.
