Abstract
Ascendant Engineering Solutions (AES) proposes to develop a Large Displacement, Tuned Deck Simulating Fixture for Medium Weight, Shock Isolated Equipment (LTMS) to address the Navy SBIR topic N123-158 - Innovative Approach to Low Cost Shock Testing Fixture for Medium Weight, Shock Isolated Equipment. The AES LTMS concept incorporates a Large Displacement Mechanism (LDM) to provide the large displacements (greater than the 3"MWSM anvil travel) that produce damage to resiliently-mounted equipment, combined with a Deck Simulating Fixture (DSF) tunable to 7, 10, 14, 20, and 28 Hz. AES will complete design trades including linear and nonlinear analyses to develop an optimal configuration that meets the LDM, DSF requirements as well as weight and size / interface constraints of the MWSM. Like the AES"Weapon Shock Simulator used by the US Army, AES proposes to integrate an automated shock measurement, and analysis tool to verify compliance to requirements. AES"s Phase I base and option plan provide a means to quickly develop a prototype in a Phase II program, and AES will work with their network of large defense company partners to rapidly transition this technology to a product.
