This thesis was inspired by the need for investigation of new methods of producing underwater sonic energy for possible use in signaling and detection. Electrolysis of sea water into hydrogen and oxygen and the detonation of this mixture underwater was chosen as the trans-- mitting source since it provides a simple and non-depth limited system usable from shipboard, submarine and airborne platforms. The fundamental source of energy to the transducer is high current, low voltage DC electrical power in magnitudes now available from the three possible platforms. A working unit was made and the pressure vs. time and pressure vs. frequency spectrums analyzed for selected parameter changes of depths gas volume and mixture ratios.
