  1. Pier-Side, Bow Sonar Calibration Methodology for Wave Piercing Hull Forms

    SBC: SEALANDAIRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N06139

    New wave-piercing hull designs and non-cylindrical arrays require a new methodology for calibration of bow sonars. Solutions must be portable and not add any deck fixtures that would increase the radar cross section of the hull. Unfortunately, the optimum separation between the ship sonar and the calibration transducers can be highly variable, depending on the frequencies and beam angles of inte ...

  4. Transparent Glass Fiber Reinforced Armor

    SBC: MAYATERIALS, INC            Topic: A06169

    Transparent armor face shields for soldiers are problematic because desirable mechanical properties must be coupled with good transparency and low areal densities. Despite excellent properties offered by polycar-bonates their properties have not kept up with advances in non-transparent armor. New materials are needed. Mayaterials believes that transparent glass fiber reinforced composites, FRCs co ...
