Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N142-117
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Makai proposes to complete a parametric analysis of candidate sonobuoy components for a conceptual deep drifting sonobuoy system. These results will enable the Navy to perform a tradeoff analysis of the sonobuoy system to meet their operational requirements and form-factor constraint. Using Navy-supplied location data, Makai will characterize ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T017
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The main objectives of this SBIR Phase II are to further enhance aspects of the previous STTR Phase II technology of the Installation Support Subsystem (ISS) development and to facilitate an accelerated transition to a fully realized Fleet capability.

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Hawaii at Manoa

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T017
Budget: 05/31/12 - 03/31/13

In coordination with the SPAWAR Systems Center (SSC), San Diego, Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc. is proposing to develop an Autonomous Burial Vehicle (ABV) to install U.S. surveillance arrays. The proposed work focuses on: (a) designing an ABV that can bury a long surveillance array following a pre-determined route on the seabed (b) manufacturing ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Hawaii at Manoa

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T017
Budget: 06/27/11 - 04/27/12

In coordination with the SPAWAR Systems Center, San Diego, Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc. proposes to develop an autonomous Array Burial Vehicle (ABV) to install U.S. surveillance arrays. The proposed work focuses on: (a) developing an overall vehicle concept for an autonomous vehicle that will install and bury an underwater sensor array to prote...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 06 D-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion has the potential of supplying large quantities of firm, renewable and clean electrical power to the US

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) has the potential of supplying large quantities of renewable electrical power to U.S. island communities in tropical waters. Large OTEC plants can be economical if they are (1) offshore floating plants that can be mass produced and (2) capable of providing at least 100MW in capacity. Today, no electrical ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-129
Budget: 09/30/08 - 03/31/10

The U.S. Navy has special requirements for recovery, maintenance and repair of seafloor cable systems. The Navy frequently makes repairs to cable systems damaged by seafloor hazards by dragging a grapnel hook near the vicinity of the break. The process of recovering the cable to make the repairs is time-consuming and without knowing the exact lo...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-227
Budget: 06/12/06 - 10/31/07

OTEC is a clean, renewable energy resource capable of producing nationally-significant quantities of hydrogen in at-sea floating plants located in warm, tropical water. During phase I, Makai has developed an analytical model to technically balance and financially evaluate a large-scale OTEC-driven hydrogen (or alternate fuel) plant and industry....
