The intent of this paper is to describe the first stages of potentially ongoing collaborative research between the United States Naval Research Laboratory's Underwater Sound Reference Detachment (USRD) and France's DCN Ingénierie centre Sud Département Lutte Sous-Marine (DCN/SUD/DLSM). The immediate focus of this collaborative work is on high Q electroacoustic transducer calibration in reverberation limited environments. This paper will be divided into three sections : the first one, a description of the motivating problem in reverberation limited measurements, the second one, a description of the two techniques developed by each laboratory, finally, research results and the activities necessary to complete the work in progress.
