Title: Controllable and Adaptable Lateral Support System
Agency: DOD
Contract: N68335-14-C-0113
Award Amount: $79,944.00


This SBIR Phase I and Phase I Option effort will demonstrate the feasibility of a controllable missile lateral support system that reacts automatically to shock and vibration inputs. The proposed design concept will utilize a smart material to provide automatically controllable shock and vibration damping for variable payload weights contained within the missile tube. Modeling and simulation will be conducted based on the system requirements and operational scenarios. A subscale conceptual design will be tested, evaluated, and delivered. Existing submarine shock and vibration isolation systems are passive systems that do not have the ability to accommodate changes in the payload. The proposed system will eliminated this drawback, since the damping will be adjusted based on the acceleration feedback provided to a control system. The proposed system will be sustainable and designed as fail-safe, where during a power supply interruption it will behave as a passive isolator.
