Research Institution
The proposed Phase I investigation is expected to yield innovative technologies for development of a novel approach to array handling systems based on a totally different design for retrieving, deploying, storing and managing submarine towed array systems. The concept is based on the principles of a simple machine. This non-traditional system dramatically lowers the mechanical stresses on the towed array while providing great flexibility in control and drive systems. Additionally, this concept is very amenable to various installation locations on the submarine. 3 Phoenix has extensive experience with submarine towed arrays and handling systems, including damage assessment of telemetry electronics caused by current handling systems, and has been successful in transitioning leading edge technology to defense applications. We anticipate that the results of this effort will demonstrate the feasibility of the system approach and the path to implementation.
