Investigation of Drag Reduction by Boundary Layer Ingestion, Base Blowing, Base Ventilation and Free Surface Depression

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1998 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Robert Gornstein
Award Amount: $99,000.00
Abstract:
This research effort will pursue four key methods of frictional drag reduction identified by Navatek, Ltd. under a prior CEROS MIDFOIL grant as supporting technologies to achieve a very high speed (70-100 knots) large (5,000-10,000 ton) ship. Under this grant, Navatek conceptualized a high-speed… More

Development of Lightweight and Low Cost Advanced Structural Materials for Off-board Surface Vessels (OBVs)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: UNIV. OF SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI
Principal Investigator: Jeffrey E. Kline, Vice President Naval Arch
Award Amount: $69,951.00
RI Contact: James W. Rawlins
Abstract:
The Navatek, Ltd. Team will successfully demonstrate the feasibility of using Fiber Reinforced Composites (FRC) materials to significantly reduce the weight of the (hull) structure of the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV). We will use as a baseline for comparison our… More

Dynamic Compensation System for Towed Bodies

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Gary Shimozono, Vice President, Naval Arc
Award Amount: $69,664.00
Abstract:
Navatek Ltd. will successfully integrate their Integrated Propulsion Pod (IPP) technology to provide dynamic motion compensation to manned and unmanned surface vehicles to facilitate safe and effective launch, tow and recovery of tow bodies for up to and including a sea state 4 condition at various… More

Offboard Refueling Support System for Unmanned Surface Vehicles

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Jeffrey E. Kline, Vice President
Award Amount: $69,618.00
Abstract:
It is proposed that a new "refueling mission package" capability be developed for the LCS ASW Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) to perform function of a refueling tanker for refueling other offboard systems (USVs or unmanned underwater vehicles) without restricting host ship operations. Utilizing the… More

Dynamic Compensation System for Towed Bodies

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Gary Shimozono, Vice President R, D, T &
Award Amount: $579,626.00
Abstract:
Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) will be a part of the Navy's future capabilities. Navatek has design, built and delievered two USV's to General Dynamics Robotics Systems (GDRS). The towing performance of these vehicles can be greatly improved with an Aft Lifting Body (ALB). The benefits of an ALB on… More

Advanced Breakwater and Causeway Design Concepts

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Todd Peltzer, Director of Programs
Award Amount: $69,975.00
Abstract:
We propose to develop an advanced breakwater and causeway system for operation in austere ports, with limited or no facilities, that will provide a complete solution to reliably enable the military to supply forces ashore with needed cargo and supplies. A ruggedly-designed breakwater made from… More

Active Motion-Compensation Technology for Roll-On/Roll-Off Cargo Vessel Discharge to Floating Platforms

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Todd Peltzer, Director of Programs – (808) 531-7001
Award Amount: $79,944.00
Abstract:
We propose to develop an active motion-compensation platform for roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO) cargo vessel discharge operations onto a floating platform that reliably and safely enables the military to supply needed cargo for military operations and humanitarian assistance in conditions up to sea state… More

Versatile Shallow Water Anchoring/ Securing Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Todd Peltzer, Director of Programs – (808) 531-7001
Award Amount: $79,934.00
Abstract:
We propose to develop a semi-autonomous anchoring system that will reduce the number of personnel required, reduce the number of bottom-condition-specific components, reduce the amount of training required to operate, and reduce the likelihood of errors. The solution will reliably enable the… More

High Sea State Automated Deployment and Retrieval of Towed Bodies from a Small Surface Platform

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Gary Shimozono, VP, RDT&E – (808) 531-7001
Award Amount: $79,976.00
Abstract:
The proposed effort will address the problem of deploying and retrieving a tow body in rough wave conditions from a small craft or large ship. The approach makes use of a material newly available to the U.S. Department of Defense. The material is drop stitch fabric, whose use was restricted by the… More
