Its principle of operation depends upon the sympathetic vibra tion of a membrane or other mech anism free to vibrate under the action of external fluid vibrations. This vi brator Is tuned to respond to a certain pitch, that is, to a certain number of vibrations per second. If a vibration of this pitch reaches it, it will imme diately commences vibrating. Its vi j bratory movement Is utilized to per j from many desired functions through an appropriate mechanism, the funda ; mental element of which comprises a relay of extremely delicate opera tions. By Introducing a number of vibra tors, each corresponding to a given pitch, an airship or a torpedo may be controlled In Its movements by sounds may controlled In Its movements by sounds conveyed through the air or water, Sounds conveyed through the water are much more effectively transmitted than through the air, and a sub- j marine or surface boat can thus be controlled at a further distance than can an airship. But the distance of control is necessarily limited to the radius of sound transmission. With I a powerful siren It Is possible to tend this radius to some degree, but the device will always be pre-eminent ly a short distance one. ex- I One of the particularly useful appli cations pointed out by the inventor is the art of submarine signaling.
