PIEZOELECTRIC/MAGNETOSTRICTIVE SONAR TRANSDUCER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Donald P Massa
Award Amount: $499,500.00
Abstract:
An underwater sonar transducer which combines both magnetostriction and piezoelectricity will be studies and evaluated during phase i. this hybrid transducer has been described in u.s. patent 4,443,731 (butler and clark, hybrid piezoelectric and magnetostrictive acoustic wave transducer) and has the… More

ACTIVE SONAR RANGE DOPPLER NORMALIZATION FOR LARGE CONTINUOUS WAVE (CW) TRANSMISSION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Donald P Massa
Award Amount: $49,845.00
Abstract:
An active sonar system is proposed that will eliminate the adverse effects of reverberation in long continuous wave (cw) acoustic transmissions. the unique system employs a circle detector processor that will detect a target with a small doppler shift even when it is buried in reverberations with… More

STANDOFF MINEFIELD MARKING FOR VERY SHALLOW WATER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Frank Massa
Award Amount: $49,489.00
Abstract:
A need exists for marking cleared lanes through minefields. two proposed lane marking systems will permit the best selection for the prevailing conditions. phase i will build breadboard to demonstrate each system. one system uses coded transponders approximately 1" diameter mounted on top of a… More

MINIATURIZED METALLIC GLASS ACCELEROMETER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Stephen C Butler
Award Amount: $49,807.00
Abstract:
This highly active metallic glass (metglas) material has features which make it attractive as a transduction mechanism for accelerometers and directional hydrophones. under phase i, a single-channel miniaturized accelerometer prototype with extended low-frequency capability will be developed,… More

Lo%f Frequency Spark Gap (Plasma) Transducer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Donald F. Massa
Award Amount: $49,715.00

Lo%f Frequency Spark Gap (Plasma) Transducer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Donald F. Massa
Award Amount: $746,502.00
Abstract:
1The spark gap underwater sound transducer is a 50-year-old technology which was studied at length during the late 1950's, principally by Edgerton at MIT and by Caulfield at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Originally it was intended as a low-frequency sound source for sub-bottom seismic… More

Legged Vehicle for Underwater Mobile Operations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Mr. Donald P. Massa
Award Amount: $59,013.00
Abstract:
There is a need to develop an underwater ambulatory robot that will exhibit improved capabilities for shallow water operation. Such a vehicle could not only be used for commercial applications such as exploration of ocean bottoms for marine biology, oceanography, bottom topography, mining, harbor… More

Low Cost Hydrophones for Thin Line Towed Arrays

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Donald Massa, President – (781) 749-4800
Award Amount: $79,930.00
Abstract:
A need exists for a less expensive thin line towed array hydrophone element to reduce the cost of towed arrays and to allow more hydrophone elements in a towed array. Massa Products Corporation, which has produced acoustic underwater and air transducers and systems for the past 65 years, proposes to… More
