Research Institution
The riverine requirements outlined by NAVSEA dictate that a composite material hull with innovative integral armor solutions and C4ISR may be required to meet the mission objectives. This response to the Phase I SBIR solicitation presents information on concepts for a Composite Armored Riverine Boat (CARB) offered by a team of industry leaders: Seemann Composites, Inc. (SCI), Materials Sciences Corporation (MSC), Old Dominion University (ODU) and DRS Technologies. SCI, a small business known worldwide for its innovative fabrication of high quality composite military structures, will lead the team. MSC, also a small business, has been providing engineering design and analysis services to the composites industry and the U.S. Navy since the 1970’s. ODU provides a unique skill set of academic and industry/government partnerships to fully research, test, and evaluate promising hull forms. Finally, DRS Technologies is a leading supplier of integrated C4ISR products, services and support to military forces, intelligence agencies and prime contractors worldwide. Focused on defense technology, DRS develops, manufactures and supports a broad range of systems for mission critical and military sustainment requirements.
