  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Portable Rapid Pipe Pile Cutter System

    SBC: CARDINAL SCIENTIFIC INC.            Topic: N/A

    The ELCAS(M) can be made operational significantly faster by implementing a superior technology for steel pile cut off The current practice uses manual cutting torches to cut the piles while being supported by a crane. Approximately 60 hours of valuable crane time are required to cut and remove more than 160 piles for a 3000 foot long causeway. A concept that improves the current steel pile cutt ...

  6. Electrochemical Based Composite Moisture Sensor

    SBC: DACCO SCI, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Moisture present in composite laminations or honeycomb structures makes repair operations difficult and time consuming. If the moisture id not removed, high vapor pressure (steam) formed at elevated temperatures, can result in blown skins and more extensive damage than existed before the repair attempt. Moisture concentrations in the composite or adhesive can also cause significant degradation i ...

  7. Affordability Measurement and Prediction Technologies

    SBC: Decision Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal builds upon work currently underway for the Office of Naval Research's Acquisition Reform Office. This body of work known as SNAP (Simulating New Acquisition Processes), consists of five interconnected simulation models that make up a "virtual acquisition process." The models, developed using the system dynamics methodology, can quantify the long-term tradeoffs among cost, performa ...

  8. High Fidelity Ocean Surf Zone Model for Use in USMC Simulators

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: N/A

    In the proposed research Dynaflow, Inc. and Nichols' AME propose to develop a high fidelity model of the surf-zone for implementation in marine corps simulators for the Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle. Phase I research will concentrate on identifying those elements of a surf-zone model that must be specified so that accurate forces are generated by the simulator model. Particular attention wil ...

  9. Massively Parallel Processing for Ship Self Defense

    SBC: Dynamic Simulation Group            Topic: N/A

    Embedded data-parallel super-computing technology offers the ability to employ advanced programming techniques in real-time to successfully fuse multisource data and enhance the Commander's ability to extend, visualize, manage and control his Battlespace. Recent breakthroughs in deployable massively parallel processors (MPPs) along with new software techniques that take advantage of the MPP ...

  10. Quiet, Compact High Frequency Brushless DC Motor and Controller


    Torpedo and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV) need 8-20 HP electric motors with variable speed to 800 RPM. The magnetic iron core used in motors for carrying the magnetic flux, generates audible noise if the operating frequency and its harmonics are in the audible range. Thus a low speed motor generally has audible noise associated with its magnetic circuit. We propose a permanent magnet (PM ...
