An underwater supercavitating projectile includes means to form ripples on its surrounding cavity so as to provide well-defined disturbances of the cavity boundary. As the ripples move aft of the supercavitating projectile and into the wake behind the advancing projectile, the ripples detach to form a pattern of vapor bubbles in the wake that are distinct in both size and regularity from the typical vapor bubbles formed as the cavity collapses behind the advecting projectile. Sensors record the track of the projectile along its path based on the distinct...
What is claimed is: 1. An underwater targeting system, comprising:a supercavitating projectile capable of being launched towards a target;a means for causing a ripple positioned in said projectile for providing the projectile with a distinct acoustic signal;an acoustic sensor positioned remote from said projectile and capable of receiving first acoustic signals based on said distinct acoustic signal, said acoustic sensor further being capable of receiving second acoustic signals based on an echo of said distinct acoustic signal from the target; andan aco...
