Award Amount: $69,963.00
 

Abstract:

Developing an underwater electrical cable connector that completely prevents water intrusion at high and varying pressures, even when the connector is detached and re-attached often requires innovative technology development. To ensure the connector can be disconnected and reconnected while the submerged and still eliminate potential for seawater intrusion and grounding requires a pin insertion coupling technique not currently in use today. Progeny Systems proposes construction design techniques using encapsulated connector technology that would enable underwater mateable electrical connectors for use with data and power cables. Progeny intends to leverage technologies currently being developed for data and power transmission in support of N05-065 Phase II contract for Non-Hull Penetrating Hydrophone. This connection approach will fully prevent the occurrence of disruptive grounds, increase system reliability, and provide for end-user safety while adhering to shock and vibration requirements.
