To maintain a naval vessel’s acoustic discretion, design engineers will need to identify and assess all noise sources. Permanently installed systems will monitor noise levels during operation and advise the crew when the acoustic signature of the vessel has exceeded limits in many operational modes. Structural health monitoring systems will help to detect anomalies that might occur during the vessel’s operating life.
HBK offers best-in-class acoustic and structural testing and monitoring solutions throughout the vessel’s lifecycle, including underwater acoustic measurements. The same hardware system can also be used with modal testing methods to determine the vessel’s dynamic behavior and structural integrity in the design phase.
