  1. Insertion of Surface Discharge Sparker Acoustic Sources into Submarine Countermeasures

    SBC: Phoenix Science & Technology            Topic: N/A

    The acoustic sources in existing submarine countermeasures are ceramic cylinders and flextensionals. Typically, several different size acoustic sources are used to produce a broadband spectrum. These acoustic sources have significant cost and size, and are relatively inefficient in the low frequency range of interest. Furthermore, currently more than one acoustic countermeasure system is requ ...

  2. Advanced Imaging for Surface Ship Self Protection (7126-580)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and its subcontractor Pacific Advanced Technologies (PAT) propose to determine the feasibility of an advanced high quality imaging system for threat detection and identification in support of surface ship self protection. Low flying threats which pop-up over the horizon will be the scenario of principle focus. Two approaches will be evaluated: adaptive optics a ...

  3. Ultra-Wideband, Thin Microwave Absorbers Based on Metal-Infused Nanoparticle Clusters (7147-100)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of the proposed program is to realize novel materials that effectively absorb microwave radiation over the entire X- and Ku-Band frequency ranges (8 to 18 GHz), with thicknesses down to those that are appropriate for paints. The characteristics will be achieved through the development of novel composites that have dielectric constants that are easily tailored and which have a freque ...

  4. Structural Health Monitoring Using Fiber Optic Sensing

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A system for structural health monitoring of ships using fiber optic sensors will be developed. The baseline system to be investigated is a proprietary spread spectrum interrogation system under development by Lucent Technologies, which will support monitoring of strain, temperature, and potentially other parameters, continuously in space and time. Ideally, this system will be able to interrogate ...

  5. Affordability Modeling in an Uncertain Environment

    SBC: PROMETHEUS INC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to create a technology to improve Naval acquisition planning in a partially known environment, thereby reducing the negative impact of uncertainty, while simultaneously incorporating affordability as a fundamental constraint. Our decision support system will be flexible in its assumptions to facilitate replanning in response to changes faced by planners and warfare systems architec ...

  6. A Software Environment for Test Program Development and Validation

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of the proposed effort is to develop a software environment that performs model-based reasoning to generate an efficient and validated test program set (TPS). To this end, we propose to leverage our integrated diagnostic environment, centered around Testability Engineering and Maintenance System (TEAMS), for the creation of multisignal models and the generation of optimized diagnostic ...

  7. Very Low Structure Borne Noise Unit Enclosures for COTS Modules

    SBC: ACENTECH INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Structure borne noise generated by cooling fans and other moving components in COTS can be transmitted to the ship's structure in a hard deck environment. The research proposed here is to evaluate the feasibility of using low-density granular fill (LDGF) for the purpose of reducing this structure borne noise to a level that is considered innocuous. LDGF, a passive damping treatment, has ...

  8. High frequency Magnetically Suspended Propulsor For Underwater Naval Podded Propulsion Systems

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SatCon Technology Corporation proposes to design, and analyze a 100 HP, 500 RPM magnetically suspended, rim-driven propulsor drive for use in a Naval underwater system. The contactless nature of magnetic bearings will improve efficiency, increase bearing life, reduce maintenance, and eliminate any bearing lubrication requirements. The proposed rim mounted, high pole count, high frequency per ...

  9. Low Cost, MEMs-based Adaptive Optics System Solutions

    SBC: Schafer Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Performance of current laser designators and rangefinders as well as antimissile IR countermeasure systems are degraded by boundary layer aero-optics and propagation path turbulence. Past approaches for compensating these error sources have focu W.J. Schafer Associates in conjunction with SY Technology Inc proposes a to develop system solutions based on demonstrated micro-electrical-mechanical ...

  10. Design Assistant for Application of System Identification and Adaptive Control to Aircraft Flight Systems.

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Over the last 30 Years, a great deal of research has been done in the fields of on-ine and off-line system Identification (SI) and Adaptive Control (AC). However, applications of these methods in Flight Control practice have not kept pace with the theoretical developments. A need exists for a design guide to assist control system designers in applying various parameter identification and a ...
