The corrosion protection of high performance bearing and gear steels without a decrease in mechanical and tribological properties is critical for Navy equipment readiness. Because of the… More

High Gain Array of Velocity Sensors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Roger Holler, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $79,950.00
Abstract:
Improvements in the noise quieting of submarines have reduced the effectiveness of passive sonobuoys in Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), causing greater emphasis on active acoustics. However, a sonobuoy with array gain of 24 dB would be a useful asset in the Navy's airborne ASW capability. Using… More

Low cost acoustic transmitter

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: Applied Research Laboratory/
Principal Investigator: Peter Ulrich, Principal Investigator – (215) 441-0449
Award Amount: $79,985.00
RI Contact: Thomas Gabrielson
Abstract:
A variety of ASW-related applications require an underwater sonar active transducer to deliver a required acoustic performance in a compact size package at a low cost. State-of-the-art technology is limited when applied to future needs. An innovative approach to identify and develop a new low cost… More

Innovative Approaches for the Development of Ultra-High Strength Intrinsically Corrosion Resistant Steel

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Jeffrey Waldman, Principal Investigator – (215) 675-4900
Award Amount: $749,947.00
Abstract:
The materials used in Navy aircraft are subjected to the harsh corrosive maritime operational environment which can cause costly maintenance problems and failures. Current alloys such as AerMet 100 have excellent strength and toughness but are not corrosion resistant. This SBIR has the goal of… More

Environmental Wideband Acoustic Receiver and Source (EWARS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Peter Ulrich, Principal Investigator – (215) 441-0449
Award Amount: $999,764.00
Abstract:
It is the focus of this SBIR topic to investigate the potential of applying the latest state-of-the-art active acoustic sensor technology for use in a wideband acoustic source / receiver sensor system. This system must be capable of characterizing the acoustic ocean environment over a wide frequency… More

Low-Profile Wideband SATCOM Antennas (LPWSA) for Airborne Platforms

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: John Daukas, Principal Investigator – (215) 675-4900
Award Amount: $99,458.00
Abstract:
This SBIR is to design, test and manufacture a state of the art, low profile, low drag SATCOM antenna system for millimeter wave Ku and Ka band transmissions from an airborne platform. The concept will enable bi-directional high data rate transmissions capable of handling imagery and communications… More
