The calibration and design of an eighthydrophone linear array has been developed for the generation of emulated Ultra High Energy (UHE) neutrino-induced pulses. The acoustic array simulates the acoustic pulse created from a neutrino interaction in water by generating a coherently emitted acoustic bipolar pulse. The calibrator is developed using signal processing methods using experimental measurements to characterise the hydrophone system. An 8 channel PIC hydrophone array module has been built for processing and control. A linear array simulation for the neutrino pulses production has been studied in order to predict the directivity and shape of the acoustic bipolar pulse at the ANTARES neutrino detector.
