  1. Hydrogel Activated Bulkhead Shaft Seal

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N04073

    Midé is proposing to complete the development of a hydrogel activated bulkhead shaft seal for the DDG-51 class ships. The purpose of a bulkhead seal is to prevent flooding between compartments along the main propulsion shafting. The current shipbuilder specifications require that the bulkhead shaft seal must be self-activating with a maximum leakage rate of 1 US pt/min for DDG ships. The probl ...

  2. Naval Device Applications of Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N02066

    This project is the development of a single crystal underwater acoustic modem transducer for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV) which is compact in size, operates at low to moderately low center frequencies, in a broad band frequency range to accommodate state-of-the-art binary, FSK and spread spectrum signaling schemes that promote covertness. The device exploits the high coupling coefficient an ...

  3. Precision Aerial Delivery of Sonobuoys (PADS)

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N04014

    PADS is an add-on device that couples to existing A/2 or smaller sonobuoys. When configured for launch, PADS conforms to A-size sonobuoy mass and geometry, so current ASW hardware and operational concepts can be employed for deployment. When launched from high altitude, PADS deploys wings and control surfaces to become a precision air delivery platform with a stand-off range approaching of 50 nm. ...

  4. Low Cost, Impact Damage Resistant Pultruded Composite Ship Structure

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N03101

    In Phase I KaZaK designed, fabricated and tested ¼ scale models of numerous material and configuration alternatives for the current 1” thick steel LCU hull bottom. Each alternative was made from composite materials, optimized for pultrusion processing to minimize cost, and tailored for production using KaZaK’s 10’ wide pultrusion equipment. Impact tests comparing performance of composite ca ...

  5. Robust Stern Launch and Recovery System for UUVs, USVs and Manned Underwater and RHID-Type Vessels [7285-021]

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N03056

    Conventional Launch and Recovery systems do not function automatically, at high ship speeds and in moderate sea states. The proposed system utilizes a unique concept of a deployable, largely open, flexible, “belt” conveyor ramp that can operate through and below the water surface in the wake of the ship with minimal drag. The open belt allows both manned and unmanned surface and subsurface c ...

  6. Laser Hybrid Welding And Control For Titanium Alloys(1000-657)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N04124

    The Laser Hybrid Welding (LHW) process has been developed in the Phase I project to join titanium alloy. The developing capability will allow the Navy to efficiently use affordable large titanium structures for aircraft, ground vehicles, ships and submarines. The LHW system incorporates a laser, a GMA welding system, and an effectively controlled gas shielding system. The proposed LHW technology h ...

  7. Low Cost, Toughened Composite Antenna Enclosure

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N04062

    The AN/SLQ-32 Electronics Enclosure is used on a number of Navel vessels, including DDG. The enclosure is no longer in production. Current needs are met by reworking existing enclosures. The supply of reworkable enclosures is insufficient to meet demands for future DDG production, so a new source is required. KaZaK Composites proposes to develop a more modern enclosure, improving the current AN/SL ...

  8. Welded Construction for LCAC Ramps(1000-716)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N04090

    Triton Systems Inc. proposes this Phase II follow on program to build a full-scale thermoplastic ramp for a Landing Craft, Air Cushioned (LCAC) vehicle, and to validate the product solution developed in Phase I. Triton’s Phase I concept offers reduced weight (>30%) and lifecycle costs, with equal or greater strength and impact resistance versus the current aluminum ramp. The composite ramp’s f ...

  9. A Robust Image Based Navigation System for an Air Vehicle

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N03025

    The objectives of this project (Phase I and II) are to develop an automated, robust, and reliable image based navigation system for an air vehicle. Phase I (1) developed a mathematical foundation for motion image navigation, (2) formulated the mathematical basis for processing a series of sensed frames to generate the terrain profile and correlating the profile to a pre-defined reference map to ...

  10. Innovative Modular Design for Leak-Proof Acoustically-Shielded Composite PTM-Light (1000-711)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N04091

    Triton Systems, Inc. proposes to design and develop a rugged, low-cost, safe and easy to assemble composite personnel transport module (CPTM) to replace the current aluminum system. The CPTM will be corrosion-resistant, water and noise leak-proof, fire-retardant (passed ASTM E1925), and environmentally-friendly. Triton has engineered advanced thermoset polymer matrix composite (PMC) materials to m ...
