Title: HYDROPHONE UNIT, METHOD FOR PRODUCING A HYDROPHONE UNIT, AND SONAR SYSTEM AND SUBMERSIBLE VEHICLE HAVING SAME
Abstract:
The invention relates to a hydrophone unit (22) comprising a hydrophone (10) and a plastics body (28), wherein the hydrophone (10) is encased by the plastics body (26) and the plastics body (26) has a predefined shape which is selectable at least partially independently of the shape of the hydrophone (10). In this case, the shape of the plastics body (26) has at least one first portion (28) and a second portion (30) which are connected together by a first connection region (32), wherein the first portion (28), in which the hydrophone (10) is at least partially arranged, has, at least partially, a substantially constant thickness (34) in the region of the hydrophone (10), and the second portion (30) is shaped in order to connect the second portion (28) releasably to a receptacle (43). The invention furthermore relates to a method for producing a hydrophone unit (22), to a sonar system having a plurality of hydrophone units (22), and to a submersible vehicle having same.
