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 assure their positive dynamic interaction with the array. Our technical objectives will consider every operating unit or component in terms of how reliability or life can be improved and how cost or weight can be reduced. Array life, hardware cost, minimal ship impact, installation cost and maintenance are the prime determinants of our New Era Towed Array Handler (NETAH) concept direction. We will strive to achieve system elegance through unit level simplification and elimination of work on the array using closed loop feedback controls.
