Award Amount: $1,296,961.00


NAVSEA Undersea Defensive Warfare Systems Program office is developing a Surface Ship Torpedo Defense program that utilizes Anti-Torpedo-Torpedo (ATT) hard kill capability for high value unit (HVU) platforms (Carriers and Combat Logistics Force (CLF) ships). The CAT, a hard kill countermeasure, consists of All Up Round Equipment (AURE), which includes a composite canister and an Anti-Torpedo Torpedo (ATT) countermeasure. Pacific Engineering Inc will design, test and fabricate EDM prototype light weight composite components of the ATT Ready Stow Group (RSG) launcher cradle and canisters for the Anti Torpedo-Torpedo (ATT) Undersea Defensive Warfare Systems. PEI will perform structural design of the ATT RSG launcher, and perform computational modeling to design cost effective component designs backed by appropriate analytical evaluations and performance predictions. PEI will perform a material analysis to ensure components are corrosion resistance. PEI will also develop high strength materials and light weight sandwich composite ballistic panels that will fit onto the ATT RSG launcher. The launcher panels will be designed to meet Insensitive Munitions, shipboard environmental conditions, low fabrication costs, and Mil-Std-901D Grade A shock. PEI will also design and develop high strength, sandwich composite canisters with heaters.
