Title: High Sea State Automated Deployment and Retrieval of Towed Bodies from a Small Surface Platform

Abstract:

The proposed effort will address the problem of deploying and retrieving a tow body in rough wave conditions from a small craft or large ship. The approach makes use of a material newly available to the U.S. Department of Defense. The material is drop stitch fabric, whose use was restricted by the Berry amendment. The concept for this project is to make a structure to deploy and retrieve tow bodies from inflatable drop stitch panels. The structure will be sufficiently rigid to support tow bodies, but compliant to preclude damaging the tow bodies by impact.
