We report on a new type of localized structure, an ultrasonic cavity soliton, supported by large aspect-ratio acoustic resonators containing viscous media. These states of the acoustic and thermal fields are robust structures, existing whenever a spatially uniform solution and a periodic pattern coexist. Direct proof of their existence is given both through the numerical integration of the model and through the analysis and numerical integration of a generalized Swift-Hohenberg equation, derived from the microscopic equations under conditions close to nascent bistability. An analytical solution for the ultrasonic cavity soliton is given.
