Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N092-137
Budget: 02/01/11 - 02/01/12

The proposed fiber optic based array shape measurement system functions by measuring the strains of the array hose through the use of embedded fiber optic sensors. The fiber optic sensors respond to deflections (shape changes) of the array hose and these readings are processed by proprietary software to determine the shape of the acoustic array....

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N093-213
Budget: 04/26/10 - 11/03/10

Aither s proposed solution will examine the development of an innovative fiber optic hull shape sensing system based on a hybrid sensing scheme to allow for the extremely large number of measurement points required for the submarine structure. During Phase I, Aither will determine the required components for this system and attempt to determine ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N092-137
Budget: 12/14/09 - 12/28/10

Current methods used to determine the shape of towed sonar arrays are limited to basic models that use data from heading and depth sensors. These sensors are prone to measurement noise especially during maneuvers. The research team recognizes that neither a fiber optic measurement system nor a physics based model can achieve the desired accuracy...
