Shipboard Shock & Vibration Environmental Monitoring and Recording
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
During naval operations, shipboard equipment is normally exposed to varying levels of shock and vibration. However, due to combat, accident, or severe sea states the levels of acceleration experienced by onboard systems may occasionally fall outside the range expected to occur during standard operation. When such an episode occurs of greatest concern is whether mission essential or mission critical equipment will continue to operate or if it was damaged beyond safe use. A technology that allowed such vital equipment to be constantly monitored, verified, and validated for continued operation after an instance of severe vibration or shock would be indispensable. To provide this capability McQ Inc. proposes to develop an electronic shock and vibration supervisor that will continually monitor and record acceleration experienced by important shipboard systems. The feedback provided by this system will empower decision makers to select the best course of action following a severe acceleration event.
