The Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport, RI is developing an electro-active polymer-based sensing node for use in a persistent distributed underwater surveillance system. Persistence demands extreme energy conservation measures. The node will resemble a jellyfish in form, complete with tentacles housing a volumetric array of light-weight piezoelectric polyvinylidene fluoride trifluoroethylene (PVDF-TrFE) copolymer cylindrical hydrophones designed for an ultra-low power acoustic receiver. Each cylinder has conductive silver electrodes on the inside and outside surfaces, a length of 2.5 cm, an outside diameter of 11 mm, a 1 mm wall thickness, and a mass less than 2 g. Operating in the hydrostatic mode, the hydrophone sensitivity is typically -195 dB1 VmuPa and is stable with both hydrostatic pressure (50 to 1000 psi) and temperature (-1 to 35 degrees C).
