  1. Acoustic Towed Array Position Measurement System for Nuclear Submarines

    SBC: DDL Omni Engineering, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DDL OMNI Engineering proposes to design a secure system for the continuous, real time acoustic measurement of towed array position relative to the host submarine. By using focused transmit and receive assemblies, pseudo- random spread broadband signals, and relatively high carrier frequency, the transmission level will be minimized so as to be virtually undetectable by a non-dedicated system ...

  2. Acousto-Ultrasonic Method for the Detection of Adhesive Bond Integrity

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Composite materials find increasing importance as structural materials for modern lightweight and low cost aircraft. Structures using composite materials essentially rely on the integrity of adhesive bonds for their structural stability. A major limitation in employing composites in critical structures is that the existing methods of testing the integrity of structures are not adequate to a ...

    SBIR Phase I 1996 Department of DefenseNavy


    The overall objective of the proposed research is to develop bistatic detection techniques for shallow water near land warfare operations. The focus of our proposed research is to achieve detection enhancement in environments characterized by dense multipath through application of optimal detection theory coupled with accurate acoustic modeling. The first specific objective is to consider alternat ...

  4. Adaptive Beamforming for Littoral Waters


    This project proposes preliminary investigations to prove the feasibility of four techniques for improving Adaptive Beamforming performance in littoral environments. Emphasis is placed on tradeoffs between algorithm efficiency and performance. The littoral acoustic environment is characterized by near and far field targets and dense dynamic near and far field directional interference at man ...

  5. Adaptive Beamforming for Multistatic Active Sonar

    SBC: AMRON CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Amron and its subcontractor BBN propose to show the feasibility of a broadband time-domain adaptive beamformer (ABF) to suppress uncorrelated narrowband sources and multipaths from correlated impulsive sources. The work is motivated by political developments which have emphasized warfare in littoral areas, where a key problem facing active sonar is scattering from topographic features. Activ ...

  6. Adaptive Optics for Advanced Laser Systems

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    We have designed an innovative adaptive-optics system to provide correction for laser beam distortion by large atmospheric turbulences such as in an aircraft boundary-layer. The adaptive-optics design is applicable to laser-based infrared countermeasure systems, laser rangefinders, and laser target designators. Our design is a new approach that specifically address large-scale turbulence in t ...

  8. Advanced Automatic Test Systems (ATS) Resources

    SBC: Computer Systems Development            Topic: N/A

    Significant savings in system life cycle costs can be realized when common Automated Test Systems (ATS) resources are used to meet both system production and field maintenance needs. Additional cost avoidance and quality gains are the result of transferring unit under test (UUT) design data, "lessons learned" gained during manufacturing in-process and system acceptance (sell-off) testing to the ma ...

  9. Advanced Mixed Signal IC for Sonar Sensors

    SBC: Oceana Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Monolithic Analog Signal Conditioner (MASC) project described by NSWC TM 951128 dealt specifically with many of the issues associated with developing a high bandwidth, high dynamic range application specific integrated circuit dedicated to the function of conditioning sensor signals prior to digitization. Since most of the MASC candidate sensor signals are destine to be digitized, there ...

  10. Affordability Measurement and Prediction Technologies


    A roadmap for affordability will be developed in Phase I based on Robust Design Simulaton(RDS) which will be applied in Phase II to address affordability design tradeoffs for propulsion system technologies in V/STOL aircraft. The V-22 tilt rotor aircraft with the T-406 engine will be used as the baseline V/STOL aircraft for affordability measurement verification and validation of the RDS. The pr ...
