  2. Wave Energy Harvesting to Power Unmanned Surface Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N05T021

    Recent world events have highlighted the need for timely and accurate intelligence data to assess threats and combat terror. An unmanned surface vehicle (USV ) can potentially perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, provide force protection, hunt for mines in coastal waters or harbors, and provide port security. USVs under development by the Navy are powered by the ...
