Title: HYDROPHONE UNIT FOR TRANSMITTING HYDROPHONE SIGNALS AND PROCESSING UNIT FOR RECEIVING THESE AND SONAR INSTALLATION THEREWITH, AND METHOD THEREFOR
Abstract:
The invention relates to a hydrophone unit (12) for transmitting hydrophone signals (24, 26), comprising at least one hydrophone (22) for producing hydrophone signals (24, 26) from underwater sound waves. Further, the hydrophone unit (12) comprises at least one segmenting means (28) for segmenting the hydrophone signals (24, 26) and a timestamp producing means (30) for producing and assigning timestamps (34), in each case to each segment (32) depending on the time or the time period in which the hydrophone signals (24, 26) of the respective segment (32) were produced. Moreover, the hydrophone unit (12) comprises a packing means (36) for producing data packets (38), in each case with a segment (32) and the timestamp (34) assigned to the segment (32), and a transmitter (40) for emitting the data packets (38). Further, the invention relates to a processing unit (14) for receiving hydrophone signals (24, 26) and a sonar installation (10) comprising a hydrophone unit (12) and a processing unit (14). Moreover, the invention relates to a method for transmitting hydrophone signals (24, 26).
