N. Y.-(/P)-Echoes too faint for
human ears offer new means of
safety for sea travel in fog.
They have been used secretly
for several months on a Long Is-
land sound motorboat by Chester
W. Rice, General Electric engineer,
as successful substitutes for sight
in fog.
They reveal the location of invis-
ible steamers nearly half a mile
distant, of shore lines and even of
floating objects as small as row-
boats and buoys. The rowboats are
spotted at distances of about one
eighth of a mile.
Three megaphones and an auto-
matic whistle constitute the main
portion of the new device. One
megaphone directs t h e whistle
blast in the direction the pilot
wishes to "see." The other two re-
ceive the echoes.
They are really specialized me-
chanical "ears," :which can be
turned like ,those of a mule to re-
ceive the rebounding sound directly
from its source.
A dial shows the distance that
the echo travels. This is the dis-
tance of the other boat or marine
obstruction. The distance figure is
based on the fact that the speed
of sound is virtually constant, at
nearly 1,100 feet a second in air.
The apparatus }s called the sonic
locator. It is an extension to air
of the principles of the sonic depth
finder, by which ships send echoesl
to the sea bottom to get instan-
taneous readings of the depth of
The fog echoes come principally
from "scattered sound energy,"
which might be described' as the
"punch" in the waves as they
spread fan-wise over the water's
There is much greater "punch"
of this sort in a single sound wave
from a high than from a low tone,
10,000 times as much. This 10,000
multiple means little to human ears

but is the crux of the success or
the new safety device.
The whistle is high pitched, 2,000
to 4,000 vibrations a second. These
are "short" waves. They have sev-
eral advantages in addition to the
extra energy.
They differ from most of the'
other sounds at sea which might
cause confusion. So these other
sounds, like the moan of the wind
in the receiving horns, is filtered
out by special devices.
The sonic, locator has operated
successfully, Mr. Rice reports, in
both calm and winds of 20 miles an
hour, and with white caps rolling.
