  4. Deep Submergence Rated Flexible Hoses and Piping System Connectors

    SBC: ATKINS & PEARCE, INC.            Topic: SOCOM08002

    There are many commercially available flexible hoses for use in non-rigid coupling of hydraulic, air, and other piping systems. However, these systems are currently not designed for operating under severe hydrostatic and dynamic pressures experienced by Deep Submergence Systems in their extreme operating environments. The pipes that connect the DDS to the sub are exposed to the water and experien ...

  5. Deep Submergence Rated Flexible Hoses and Piping System Connectors

    SBC: ATKINS & PEARCE, INC.            Topic: SOCOM08002

    Connecting deep submergence systems (submarines) in the field can be a dangerous and difficult task. The rigid piping systems used today have little flexibility to accommodate for variations in connection points and differences in tolerances between vessels. Atkins & Pearce, a 200 year old textile processing company, has developed a technology that uses a multi-layered approach to create a high ...

  6. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...

  7. SOCOM SOF Combatant Motion Recording and Biofeedback System

    SBC: MEMSense, LLC            Topic: SOCOM02007

    The United States Special Operations Command’s Special Boat Teams are routinely exposed to an environment prone to injury and the long-term effects of repetitive impact stress. The primary cause for injury and long-term degenerative musculoskeletal effects is the repetitive impacts incurred as the MK V and NSW RIB vessels impact the ocean’s surface. The goal of SOCOM02-007 Phase II research is ...
