Biomimetic Maneuverable EAP Anti-Submarine Sensor
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
In order to address the U.S. Navy"s need for improved tools for use in Anti-Submarine Warfare IST has developed key technologies that will enable the deployment of advanced acoustic sensing systems consisting of networked smart sensor nodes. These technologies will allow various components of a sensor network to harvest kinetic energy from the environment or move silently while creating a biomimetic signature. These propulsion and energy harvesting systems both utilize electroactive polymers (EAPs) in a manner based on biological models.
