Title (EN) RUGGED FIBER OPTIC TOWED ARRAY
(FR) RÉSEAU REMORQUÉ À FIBRE OPTIQUE RENFORCÉE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A fiber optic towed array is provided. The array includes a flexible core (10) upon which is disposed a semi-rigid mandrel. The semi-rigid mandrel (30) has a helical groove (40) formed therein, in which is disposed an optical fiber (20), the optical fiber including a plurality of fiber gratings. The mandrel is in turn covered with a nylon or fiber screen and encased in a layer of open cell foam, which is encased in a protective covering that includes at least one strength member disposed along a longitudinal axis of the array.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un réseau remorqué à fibre optique. Ce réseau comprend une âme souple sur laquelle se trouve un mandrin semi-rigide. Une rainure hélicoïdale est ménagée dans ce mandrin semi-rigide. Une fibre optique placée dans cette rainure comprend une pluralité de réseaux de fibres. Le mandrin est à son tour recouvert d'un treillis de nylon ou de fibres et est enrobé dans une couche de mousse à cellules ouvertes qui est enveloppée par un revêtement protecteur comprenant au moins un élément de renforcement placé sur un axe longitudinal du réseau.
