  1. Marine Mammal Detection and Mitigation


    "The United States Navy is using and/or experimenting with active, coherent and incoherent sources to detect and localize submarines operated throughout the world. As the U.S. Navy continues to develop and employ active sensors and moves into littoralareas occupied by higher densities of marine mammals, adverse environmental impacts are likely to occur. Recently, in a U.S. Department of Commerce ...

  2. Submarine Low Cost Littoral Water Sonar Passive Localization System

    SBC: Applied Measurement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    The new joint mission scenarios and stealth interdiction objectives for the U.S. Navy have resulted in the need for improved sensor systems for operations in the littoral environment. A High Frequency Towed Array (HFRA) sonar system, operating in the same frequency band as hull mounted systems, provides better detection, classification, and localization capabilities,and reduces ship maneuverabilit ...

  3. Low-Cost, Fault-Tolerant Controls for Unmanned Aircraft


    Autonomous unmanned systems require provisions for fault detection and handling. Multiply-redundant schemes typically used in aerospace applications are prohibitively expensive for general applications, especially where low cost or small size are critical. A new strategy, proposed herein, offers the potential for low-cost fault-tolerant control of paramter-dependent systems that will be useful in ...

  4. Variable Reluctance Machine- Electric Start System for Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Axiom Technology            Topic: N/A

    A Variable Reluctance Machine - Electric Start System for an advanced ship propulsion turbine engine is offered as a replacement to the existing air turbine start system. The VRM technology is capable of producing the required starting torques for the turbine engine, while operating at lower nominal speeds. This will significantly improve start system reliability. The simple design, intrins ...

  5. Tactile Transducer Design/Development

    SBC: Engineering Acoustics Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed SBIR is the design and development of a small, lightweight tactile transducer which produces a vibratory stimulus above the sensory/recognition threshold of the skin. A novel transducer element, based on a miniature, laterally acting linear motor driving a skin contactor is proposed. The transducer includes a mechanical impedance matching device which enables effici ...

  7. Development of Improved Human-Computer Interfaces for Electronic CLas


    The work proposed for Phase I has been formulated with the objective of defining a basis for developing and fielding a computer based tool for selecting and performing trade studies on multimedia. The basis will be drawn from theory, research, and successful cases of multimedia instruction directly related to Navy applications. The proposed Phase I effort will focus on specification, ground ...

  8. Growth of Ce-LiSAF/LiCAF for Transversely-Pumped Ultraviolet Solid State Lasers

    SBC: Lightning Optical Corp            Topic: N/A

    Tunability of laser output in the ultraviolet region of the spectrum has typically only been available only with doubled dye lasers. Their toxicity, size and complexity have made them undesirable for many applications, especially in areas where Recent research has demonstrated the feasibility of substitution of trivalent cerium into the colquiriite lattice, which has received considerable at ...

  9. Integrated Geotechnical-Acoustic Marine Soil Measurement Device

    SBC: Precision Signal, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this research, a miniature computer based chirp sonar will be developed for making rapid surveys of offshore sediments. The sonar reflection data will be integrated to both differential GPS navigation and spot geotechnical measurements in a manner that will provide rapid large scale assessment of marine soil properties. The cumulative survey results will be presented, in real time, in the form ...

  10. Nonlinear Dnamical Control of Laser Arrays

    SBC: Schwartz Electro-Optics, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The subject of Chaos has been investigated since the turn of the century, it wasn't until the recent advances in Chaos that the importance and scope of the field was realized. It was believed that random Chaotic variations were too complicated to describe mathematically and statistical descriptions were the only means of understanding these dynamic systems. Now it is known that these chaotic syste ...
