Three-transducers spherical wave reciprocity method in free-field is demonstrated effectively for absolute calibration of the complex sensitivity of underwater sound pressure gradient of vector receiver in the frequency range 250 Hz to 4 kHz. The regularity of underwater sound pressure gradient distribution in the spherical wave, the theory of three-transducers reciprocity calibration method and the technique of complex moving weighted average (CMWA) are studied and reviewed. The VHS90 vector receiver manufactured by Hangzhou Applied Acoustics Research Institute (HAARI) is calibrated using underwater sound pressure gradient calibration facility in a 50 m×15 m×10 m anechoic tank. To verify the results of measurements, the VHS90 vector receiver is also calibrated using low frequency vector receiver calibration facility and the underwater sound pressure calibration facility. The calibration results and the comparisons with these facilities prove the accuracy of the calibration method and facilities described in this paper. The max deviation of modulus of complex sensitivity is 0.7 dB and max deviation of phase congruency of three channels is 1.6°.
