In this work, we present a prototype of a compact linear array with three elements that is able to reproduce the acoustic signature of Ultra High Energy (UHE) neutrino interaction in water using the parametric acoustic effect. Mimicking this signal is important because it is a very directive bipolar transient signal with cylindrical symmetry. We characterized the prototype by measuring the signal waveform, the attenuation, intensity variation and directivity, with numerical simulations and experimentally in a pool. We also studied different kinds of signals to determine the best application for the array. The results confirmed the utility of this array for the proposed application in marine neutrino telescopes.
