Abstract
The report describes a research contract to develop transducer calibration software, referred to as TRANSCAL, for use in the Defence Research Establishment Atlantic (DREA) calibration facilities. The software implements a framework for these calibration procedures: (1) Transmitting response using swept sine, pulse or CW. (2) Receiving response using swept sine, pulse or CW. (3) Directional response. (4) Receiving response using pseudo-random noise. (5) Reciprocity calibration. (6) Receiving response for an array using swept sine, pulse or CW. (7) Admittance measurement. (8) Impedance measurement. The TRANSCAL software controls the calibration procedure, acquires and processes the received data, and presents the results. The current version of TRANSCAL implements procedures 1 and 2 above. In addition, admittance and impedance measurements are incorporated into procedures 1 and 2. The system has been developed using the LabVIEW programming environment, to operate on a Macintosh Quadra 900.
