  1. Submarine Launched Acoustic Communication Buoy using Single Crystal Sonar

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N07076

    For this Phase II SBIR program, TRS Technologies and Ultra Electronics Ocean Systems (UEOS) will team to design, build and test a buoy system for acoustic communications. Segmented single crystal rings for a 3" form factor will be made to provide a wide bandwidth for operation at two distinct frequency bands. TRS and UEOS will also team with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute to integrate the ...

  2. A Common, Low-Cost HF Submarine Sonar Projector

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N07066

    TRS Technologies, Inc. and Nothrop Grumman Undersea Systems (NGUS) propose to develop and test a single crystal sonar array that adds transmit capability to the currently proposed receive array for the Virginia-class submarine. The goal of this program will be to adapt the added capability to the current form factor, thereby getting maximum return for minimal modifications and interface changes. B ...

  3. Fiber Reinforced Composite Hull and Topside Structures for Air Cushioned Vehicles (MSC P8035)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: N07056

    The current aluminum hull and topside structure on LCAC are prone to corrosion and erosion due to the harsh salt-laden marine environment in which they operate. Improving durability, corrosion resistance, acoustic insulation and life cycle cost of the air cushioned vehicle (ACV) structure at minimum weight is paramount to achieving operational goals of future platforms such as the Joint Maritime A ...

  4. Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW)


    A submarine immersed in seawater behaves like a short-circuited galvanic cell which, because of variations in resistance (as a function of propeller shaft angle) between the rotating propeller shaft and its bearings, may produce an electric current that is modulated at the shaft rate. Corrosion currents arise from differences in electrical potential among the interconnected dissimilar metals on t ...

  5. Energetic Secondary Fuel Injection for Propulsion System Performance Improvement


    A joint analytical/experimental program to develop technologies to improve thermal output from combustors in propulsion systems while ensuring their stable operation is proposed. The program will exploit the use of energetic materials as secondary fuels to be injected suitably into the combustors to both increase their thermal output and ensure the mitigation of any instability that may arise in t ...

  6. Improved Approaches to Nondestructively Test Marine Aluminum Structures

    SBC: WavesinSolids LLC            Topic: N06132

    Commercially available inspection technology dedicated to Marine Aluminum Structure Inspection does not exist. While generic inspection technologies are being applied to this application, a transition to dedicated inspection technology is required to realize meaningful total ownership cost reduction. The objective of Phase II is to develop high-speed low-cost inspection technology customized fo ...

  7. Surfzone Water Properties Sensor

    SBC: Western Environmental Tech. Laboratories            Topic: N07079

    An inherently scalable solution for determining optical properties important for surfzone mine-countermeasures (MCM) and basic research will be developed. Our approach is to develop a nominally expendable SWAN (Surfzone Water Attenuation Node) drifter that will measure beam attenuation, log GPS, and wirelessly telemeter this data using inexpensive wi-fi technology. An extended version, the SWAN-M ...

  8. Single Crystal 1-3 Composite Projectors for MCM Applications

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N07076

    TRS Technologies and the Applied Research Laboratory at Penn State propose to build on high frequency (>100 kHz) single crystal, 1-3 composite projector work developed in the Phase I program for sonar in unmanned vehicles. The high bandwidth exhibited by the composite, and potential for increased source level could greatly improve data collection, while limiting impact on vehicle volume. In the Ph ...

  9. Network Monitoring and Management System (NMMS)


    In Phase II, Daniel H. Wagner Associates will build the full-scale prototype NMMS and evaluate it using both simulated and real-world sensor data.We will use this Phase II system to further develop effective information flow optimization techniques in support of LCS ASW operations, and in support of transitioning these innovative NMMS technologies into other operational Navy systems.We will also d ...

  10. Development of a Narrowband, Wide Field of View Lidar Receiver Suitable for Day/Night Operation

    SBC: RL ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N05119

    In this Phase II program we propose to develop a narrowband blue laser system, transition a narrowband, wide field of view holographic filter to the blue spectrum, package the filter with a custom receiver, and validate these components both in the lab and in the Navy’s ASW Lidar system. The blue filter subsystem will be characterized in a relevant simulated environment in the laboratory as par ...
