Award List:

THERE IS AN ABSOLUTE NEED TO FIND BETTER METHODS FOR SPOOL TO SYSTEM TRANSFER OF CABLE, ROPE AND ARRAYS.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Bernard bishop
Award Amount: $49,770.00
Abstract:
There is an absolute need to find better methods for spool to system transfer of cable, rope and arrays. present methods used are manual or makeshift. this is partially due to the large variety of field circumstances and the state of the art design of low speed, high torque systems. the proposed… More

DEEP WATER CTD HANDLING SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Bernard Bishop , President
Award Amount: $30,000.00

DEEP WATER CTD HANDLING SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Bernard Bishop , President
Award Amount: $199,000.00
Abstract:
There is a long overdue need for better methods to handle cable in a surging sea. present equipment was designed for deck or shore use and does not address the impact of wave force. what is required of today's system is a low inertia,high response capstan to isolate the sea/ctd package from the… More

AUTONOMOUS UNDERWATER VEHICLE ARRAY DEPLOYMENT SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Bernard Bishop
Award Amount: $49,592.00
Abstract:
The autonomous underwater vehicle (auv) has become a reality over the last ten years. they have been designed to function well in hostile environments by the oil industry for such tasks as oil rig inspection. with the inevitability of the quiet russian submarine, the navy will soon have to apply new… More

MULTI-LINE ARRAY RETRIEVAL AND STOWAGE SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Bernard Bishop
Award Amount: $49,612.00

HIGH SPEED AERIAL CABLE TARGET TROLLEY

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Bernard Bishop , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $49,461.00

HIGH SPEED AERIAL CABLE TARGET TROLLEY

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Bernard Bishop , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $383,500.00
Abstract:
The objective of this basic research is to determine the feasibility of designing a high speed target trolley for use on an aerial cable. a 550 knot target trolley may be possible because of two recent technological developments. the first of these is the development of high strength, low weight… More

ADVANCED TOWED ARRAY HANDLING

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Bernard Bishop
Award Amount: $52,745.00

ADVANCED TOWED ARRAY HANDLING

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Bernard Bishop
Award Amount: $566,074.00
Abstract:
Today\'s submarine towed array handling system operating parameters an methods are equivalent to those used in the late sixties. Attempts to utilize conventional cable handling methods are not suitable for array handling, and appropriate methods have not yet been defined. Outboard system volume,… More

Low Cost, Reliable Towed Sensors Handling Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Bernard Bishop, PRESIDENT
Award Amount: $79,997.00
Abstract:
Thin-line Towed Array operational capability and array development progress have been restricted by substandard reliability of the Handling System/Array and resultant high operational costs. Thirty years of attempts to improve reliability have proven that Handler, Ship and Array concepts must be… More

Towed Sensors Handling System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Bernard Bishop, PRESIDENT – (847) 296-1000
Award Amount: $749,563.00
Abstract:
The intent of this research is to define a new era in array handling technology. The technical objective of this research is to design new concept Towed Array Handler System primary units, namely a capstan and interdependent stowage reel, and then test scaled prototypes of these primary units to… More
