Abstract
This SBIR Phase II proposal describes the development of a Light Weight Towing System (LWTS) that enables a Compact Magnetic Detection Set (CMDS) to be utilized on vertical take-off and fixed wing manned and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) employed for shallow water Anti Submarine Warfare (ASW) and land-based target detection such as buried weapons caches and IEDs. The LWTS is comprised of a reeling machine, towline and towed body that houses the CMDS MAD system. Design goals of the LWTS are 1) light weight, 2) flight stability, 3) low power, 4) ruggedness, and 5) compact light weight Roll-On/Roll-Off configuration for multiple platform applications. The Phase III effort will encompass the design, fabrication and demonstration of a hardened mil-spec LWTS system.
