Award List:

Distributed Buoy Vessel Detection System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: George S. Lewis, Principal Investigator – (260) 485-3752
Award Amount: $99,005.15
Abstract:
Non-cooperative vessel tracking to assess potential threats is becoming increasingly important to the defense of the U.S. coastline and ports of entry; so there is a need to identify and intercept potential threats well before they reach our shores. To support this critical surveillance activity the… More

Low Drag, Underwater Acoustic Source for Sea surface-based Mine Sweeping

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: PURDUE UNIV.
Principal Investigator: George S. Lewis, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,983.00
RI Contact: Thomas Wright
Abstract:
The U.S. Navy desires the use of Unmanned Surface Vessels in littoral water regions for the mission of Mine Counter Measures. In particular, the use of the standard Navy Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIBs) for such a mission is desirable to decrease dependence on traditional, high operating cost… More

DISTRIBUTED BUOY VESSEL DETECTION SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: George S. Lewis, Principal Investigator – (260) 485-3752
Award Amount: $844,031.71
Abstract:
Noncooperative vessel tracking to assess potential threats is becoming increasingly important to the defense of the U.S. coastline and ports of entry; so there is a need to identify and intercept potential threats well before they reach our shores.

Reliable Acoustic Path Vertical Line Array

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Sara Wagar, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,979.00
Abstract:
The U.S. Navy has researched the use of various acoustic sensing technologies that exploit the deep water reliable acoustic path (RAP) using vertical line arrays (VLA's) of vector sensors with success. The buoys used were, however, large, over-the-side deployed, research systems to demonstrate the… More

Low Drag, Underwater Acoustic Source for Sea surface-based Mine Sweeping

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: PURDUE UNIV.
Principal Investigator: George S. Lewis, Principal Investigstor
Award Amount: $532,402.00
RI Contact: Thomas Wright
Abstract:
The Navy desires the use of RHIB's in littoral waters for MCM because of its many advantages. However, these advantages can only be accomplished by providing a towed minesweeping approach that allows the RHIB to adequately perform the required mission within its limited towing capacity. The Phase I… More

Ocean Energy Extraction for Sensor Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: UNIV. OF MIAMI
Principal Investigator: William Serstad, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,893.00
RI Contact: William M. Drennan
Abstract:
Energy extraction is needed for various ocean deployed devices. Extracted energy can be expected to be at various levels and intermittent, but plentiful. The Phase I effort will recommend an extraction technique that directly converts ocean energy into electrical power. The extractor will be… More

Innovative Undersea Sensors Using Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Sara Wagar, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,875.00
Abstract:
The frequency spectrum of interest for hydrophones used in Naval tactical systems, ocean surveillance systems, or for environmental monitoring is continuing to expand, due to increased interest in passively detecting third-world submarines, merchant shipping, biologics, etc. as well as increased… More

Single Crystal Transducer Technology for Undersea Tracking Ranges

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Sara Wagar, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $79,906.00
Abstract:
Undersea tracking ranges are used to monitor and assess the performance of submarines, torpedoes, ships and targets conducting tests and exercises on weapon system performance. The ability to track these platforms is largely based on the performance of the transducers used in the tracking systems.… More

Innovative Undersea Sensors Using Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Sara Wagar, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $299,929.00
Abstract:
The frequency spectrum of interest for hydrophones used in Naval tactical systems, ocean surveillance systems, or for environmental monitoring is continuing to expand, due to increased interest in passively detecting third-world submarines, biologics, etc. as well as increased interest in… More

Acoustic Vector Projector Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Sara Wagar, Principal Investigator – (260) 402-0353
Award Amount: $69,993.00
Abstract:
Although the performance of naval systems for Anti-Submarine Warfare and Counter-Torpedo Detection, Classification, and Localization systems are presently adequate for current missions they are limited by the size, power and detection range of the associated sonar transducer arrays. What is required… More
