Award List:

Optical Array Shape Estimation (ASE)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Chris Baldwin, Technical Director
Award Amount: $99,444.00
Abstract:
Current methods used to determine the shape of towed sonar arrays are limited to basic models that use data from heading and depth sensors. These sensors are prone to measurement noise especially during maneuvers. The research team recognizes that neither a fiber optic measurement system nor a… More

Real-Time Hull Shape Monitor

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Chris Baldwin, Technical Director
Award Amount: $69,970.00
Abstract:
Aither's proposed solution will examine the development of an innovative fiber optic hull shape sensing system based on a hybrid sensing scheme to allow for the extremely large number of measurement points required for the submarine structure. During Phase I, Aither will determine the required… More

Optical Array Shape Estimation (ASE)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Chris Baldwin, Technical Director – (240) 296-1303
Award Amount: $299,257.00
Abstract:
The proposed fiber optic based array shape measurement system functions by measuring the strains of the array hose through the use of embedded fiber optic sensors. The fiber optic sensors respond to deflections (shape changes) of the array hose and these readings are processed by proprietary… More
