The AMADEUS system is a submarine acoustic array that was operated from 2008 until 2015 as a part of the ANTARES neutrino telescope in the Mediterranean Sea. Its design goal was to investigate the feasibility of acoustic neutrino detection in the deep sea. The data taken during its eight years of operation provide a wealth of information for setting up realistic simulations of future acoustic neutrino detectors. Using in addition simulations of neutrino interactions in water, various potential acoustic neutrino detector designs were investigated and methods for suppressing background and reconstructing energy and direction of incoming neutrinos were developed. In this article, some recent results will be presented.
