Abstract:

THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A PHASE I RESEARCH PROJECT TO EVALUATE ELECTROMAGNETIC INDUCTION AS A TECHNIQUE FOR PRELAUNCH TORPEDO COMMUNICATIONS. IN THIS CONCEPT, A MAGNETIC FLUX IS GENERATED IN A TOROIDAL-LIKE CORE. THE CORE WOULD BE MOUNTED ON A TORPEDO TUBE. A SMALL BLADE ANTENNA IS MOUNTED ON THE TORPEDO AND CAN DETECT OR EXCITE THE MAGNETIC FIELD IN THE CORE. TWO-WAY COMMUNICATION IS THEN POSSIBLE. IN THIS PROJECT, WE WILL DEVELOP A COMMUNICATIONS PROTOCOL ALONG WITH INTERFACE ELECTRONICS FOR THE WIRELESS LINK. THE POSSIBLE TORPEDOS AND TORPEDO TUBE MOUNTING CONFIGURATIONS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. CORE MATERIALS WILL ALSO BE STUDIED AND DESIGN CRITERIA FORMULATED. A PROTOTYPE DEVICE WILL BE BUILT TO DEMONSTRATE AND EVALUATE THE CONCEPT.
