Abstract
In 2004, Breault Research Organization (BRO) was awarded and successfully completed the "Ship Board Lighting System" Phase 1 SBIR. The goal of this project was to develop a new solid-state deck floodlight that met the Navy's irradiance and uniformity requirements. In addition, the new deck floodlight had to be night vision goggle (NVG) compatible and have a lower life cycle cost than a traditional incandescent floodlight. During Phase 1, we showed that our design met these requirements. Our custom optical system distributed light evenly over a 30ft by 30 ft area. However, we also made the system modular in order to illuminate other deck configurations with the same basic design. For this Phase 2 project, BRO proposes to design, build, demonstrate performance and conduct several environmental test of our deck floodlight system. As part of our design process, we plan to use as many off-the-shelf solutions as possible in order to add capability and reduce cost where the performance of the system is not compromised. At the end of Phase II, we will have completed the floodlight design, established the assembly and test procedures, and fabricated many of the necessary component, assembly and test tooling.
