Title: Incipient Failure Detection Device For Submerged Outboard Cables
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N65538-10-C-0040
Award Amount: $79,916.00


A hands-on research and development effort is proposed for an advanced portable cable testing system with specific monitoring and diagnostic capabilities for submerged outboard electrical cables installed in U.S. Navy surface craft and submarines. The focus in Phase I will be on design of equipment and software algorithms for in-situ detection of degradation in SubHDR Dip Loop Cabling, or other cables of immediate interest to the Navy. The test system will incorporate a variety of specialized cable evaluation techniques that will be proven in the laboratory. These techniques will include upgraded and/or modified variations of the proposing firm's proprietary data acquisition and analysis algorithms and will include easy-to-use menus and system interfaces. The system design will be ruggedized for use in shipboard or shipyard environments and will use state-of-the art, high speed, high resolution, computer-aided data acquisition equipment built especially for cable testing.
