Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design and development of an optical hydrophone array for a seabed application. Optical hydrophones have been under development in a number of countries [1] as alternatives to piezoelectric based sensors, and the technology has now reached the stage where arrays with significant numbers of sensors can be constructed and deployed in realistic (and frequently hostile) environments.
