Abstract:

The purpose of the Phase I work is to identify the best packaging concept for the Hall Effect device and to deterinine the feasibility of building it. KVH proposes to test and characterize the NWC Hall Effect Breadboard and to generate a packaging feasibility study. KVH will use unique, proprietary capabilities, including a free standing Triaxial Helmholtz Cage to evaluate the NWC concept. KVH will use the analysis results to formulate a packaging concept for the Hall Effect Device in accordance with predetermined DTC objectives. The results will also be applied to a concept refinement which will include investigation of implementing compensation capability and analysis of accessing, or incorporating, vertical reference data. Compensation capability will allow the Hall Effect device to achieve 0.50 installed accuracy. The implementation of vertical reference data will enable the unit to be used as a compass, significantly increasing its marketing potential. KVH will perform a preliminary market analysis to quantify the volume potential for the modified design. KVH proposes four deliverables for the Phase I effort: (1) Breadboard Test Report, (2) Formal Design Review, (3) Packaging/Technical Feasibility Study, and (4) Phase II Proposal.
