Us Patents

  • Beamformer With Reduced Sampling Rate

    view source
  • US Patent:
    42901278, Sep 15, 1981
  • Filed:
    Dec 3, 1979
  • Appl. No.:
    6/099386
  • Inventors:
    Roger G. Pridham - Providence RI
    Ronald A. Mucci - Westwood MA
  • Assignee:
    Raytheon Company - Lexington MA
  • International Classification:
    G01S 382
  • US Classification:
    367123
  • Abstract:
    A beamformer for an array of sonar transducers, or electromagnetic radiating elements, includes mixers for translating the signals received by the transducers to a lower frequency. The beamformer incorporates delay lines operating at a clock rate which is reduced in proportion to the decrease in frequency. Each delay line provides delays to the signals of corresponding ones of the transducers in accordance with the time of arrival of a wavefront of radiation upon the respective transducers. Phase shifters coupled between the mixers and the delay lines impart phase shifts to the transducer signals proportional to the respective delays to compensate for the lowering of the frequency.
  • System And Method For Measuring Ice Thickness

  • US Patent:
    46972544, Sep 29, 1987
  • Filed:
    Jun 2, 1986
  • Appl. No.:
    6/869644
  • Inventors:
    Roger G. Pridham - Providence RI
  • Assignee:
    Raytheon Company - Lexington MA
  • International Classification:
    G01S 966
    G01S 968
  • US Classification:
    367 92
  • Abstract:
    Sonar ice thickness measurement comprises transmitting an AM and subsequent CW sonic radiant energy signals from the water toward the sonic signal reflecting ice cap. Reflection of the CW signal from the water-ice interface and reflection from the water-air interface of the modulating frequency, generated by non-linear or parametric effects in the water by the modulated transmit signal, causes the CW signal to be modulated to generate side bands at the modulating frequency on each side of the carrier frequency to provide an FM high frequency signal. Detection of the FM signal determines the time of arrival of the echo of said detected FM signal relative to the detection of the reflected modulated signal from the water-ice interface.
  • Sonic Direction System

  • US Patent:
    42131952, Jul 15, 1980
  • Filed:
    Apr 12, 1976
  • Appl. No.:
    5/676445
  • Inventors:
    Roger G. Pridham - Providence RI
  • Assignee:
    Raytheon Company - Lexington MA
  • International Classification:
    G01S 1506
  • US Classification:
    367 92
  • Abstract:
    A system for the determination of the direction of a source of sound in water utilizing the finite amplitude effect. A narrow beam of sonic energy at a frequency higher than that of the source is projected in a direction opposite the direction of the source. A hydrophone receiving beam intercepts the projector beam at a distance from the projector thereof, the distance being sufficient to permit a finite amplitude non-linear interaction of the projector beam energy and the energy of the source via a virtual end-fire array. Cross-modulation products resulting from the non-linear interaction are received by the hydrophone, the precision of measurement being dependent on the directivity pattern of the virtual end-fire array.

  • US Patent:
    41707664, Oct 9, 1979
  • Filed:
    Jan 27, 1978
  • Appl. No.:
    5/873042
  • Inventors:
    Roger G. Pridham - Providence RI
    Andrew C. Callahan - Newport RI
    Ronald A. Mucci - Jamestown RI
  • Assignee:
    Raytheon Company - Lexington MA
  • International Classification:
    G01S 380
    G01S 300
  • US Classification:
    367135
  • Abstract:
    A beamformer forms a beam from a set of samples of signals from an array of elements such as sonar transducers. Sequences of signal samples from each transducer are delayed relative to each other by fractional amounts of the intersample interval. The sequences of the signal samples with the predetermined delays therebetween are applied to a common beamforming filter having a pass band of sufficient width to accommodate the signals. The impulse response time of the filter is longer than the intersample interval in any one of the sample sequences for providing a beam equal to the sum of regenerated transducer signals. The radiation pattern of the beam is independent of the sampling rate.
