Abstract: BTech proposes the design and development of low-profile, innovative acoustic velocity sensors for measuring acoustic motion of sound waves in marine applications. Methods include increasing voltage sensitivity by novel connections, considerations of co-located preamplifiers, multiple plates, improved materials and more. An improved acoustic motion accelerometer sensor for hull arrays is proposed using piezoelectric plates in a neutrally bouyant case.
