  2. Sonobuoy Electronic Function Selector (EFS) Replacement


    Present sonobuoys allow for the selection of functions such as RF Channel, Depth, etc. by use of a single selector button and LED display along with a second button used for verification located on the side of the sonobuoy. Selection or verification requires access to the buttons and cannot be accomplished once the sonobuoy is loaded into the launcher. The capability to select and verify functions ...

  3. Very High Frequency Volumetric Acoustic Array

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N111046

    The US Navy, Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) plans to upgrade its facilities at the Acoustic Research Detachment (ARD). Part of this upgrade includes installation of volumetric measurement arrays to characterize the radiated acoustic signatures of scale submarine models. At low and mid-frequencies the planned volumetric arrays will likely resemble those currently installed at the Southeast Ala ...

  5. Next Generation Electronic Support Measures Trainer for Submarines

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: N131078

    Sonalysts will develop and demonstrate a game-based adaptive training system for AN/BLQ-10 ESM operators that extends the approach developed for Passive Narrowband Sonar operators in the APB-13 Narrowband Adaptive Trainer. The game elements include a student avatar whose appearance reflects student progress, medals for accomplishment of major LOs, scoring that rewards consistent correct response, ...

  6. Mission Planning Application for Submarine Operations and Risk Management

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: N131044

    Sonalysts proposes to develop a Mission Planning-Evaluation Tool (MP-ET) to support submarine Commanding Officers"risk and operational assessment of mission plans. Our approach is to extend the current APB-13 Mission Planning Application (MPA) by using a fuzzy logic approach. This method enables encoding the heuristics used by experts into an automated, quantifiable evaluation of operational risk. ...

  7. Mitigation of Biologically Induced Active Sonar Reverberation in Littoral Regions

    SBC: Advanced Reasoning Inc.            Topic: N131045

    Historically, operation of the mid-frequency active sonar in littoral regions has presented sonar operators with challenges due to the complex nature of the ocean acoustic environment in shallow waters. Although there are complex reasons for the appearance of clutter, research has shown that biological backscatter currently produces serious interference in midfrequency active sonar. This proposal ...

  8. Human Computer Interfaces for supervisory control of Multi-mission, Multi-Agent Autonomy

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: OSD12HS1

    We propose to develop a collaborative control user interface that will enable operators to work more effectively with highly autonomous vehicles by engaging in a dialog to exchange ideas, ask questions, and resolve differences. We will develop a concept of operations for the collaborative control user interface, and we will create specific, representative scenarios describing situations and events ...

  9. Seam Engineering: Stitchless Seam Technology

    SBC: PROPEL, LLC            Topic: N122134

    Propel LLC proposes to systematically investigate novel stitchless seam technologies with the potential to be used for the design and engineering of existing US Navy clothing end-items. Propel will develop sample seams using the identified stitchless technologies and use these samples to evaluate and rank the novel technologies according to performance test data. Other ranking criteria will also b ...

  10. Piezocrystal Gyroid Transducer

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N122142

    We propose the design and development of a novel gyroid transducer comprised of piezocrystal ring elements. The Phase I effort covers the modeling and demonstration of the gyroid transducer and comparison of performance with several piezocrystal and piezoceramic materials. The electroacoustic performance will be estimated for several designs and a prototype element will be built and laboratory tes ...
