Award List:

Dual-Mode Broadband Surface Ship, Hull Mounted, Mine Avoidance Sonar

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Gerald F. Denny, Chief Sonar Engineer
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
Alaska Native Technologies, LLC (ANT) proposes to develop a hull-mounted sonar system that would be integrated into the DD(X) HF Mine Avoidance Bow Sonar processing chain to provide search and identification of small objects in the water column ¿60¿ swaths in front of the vessel. The proposed… More

Swimmer Detection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Benjamin Thompson
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
The United States Coast Guard`s homeland security mission includes providing security for 361 ports and 95,000 miles of US Coastline. This coastline is susceptible to both criminal and terrorist attack. Waterside facilities and critical infrastructure are especially vulnerable to attack from on or… More

Littoral Geoacoustic Surveys Using an Adaptive Network of Gliders

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Eric O. Rogers, Chief Systems Engineer
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Acoustic sensor systems are the backbone of both anti-submarine (ASW) and mine-countermeasure (MCM) systems. Inadequate knowledge of the acoustic environment, especially in denied areas, results from a lack of survey equipment, funding, and access to areas of tactical interest. Moreover, the… More

Multi-Purpose Antenna

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Joseph Imlach, Chief Mechanical Engineer
Award Amount: $79,524.00
Abstract:
Currently the E-2C is covered with antennas for VHF/UHF line of sight, UHF satellite communications, L-band and GPS functions. There is a need to condense some of these functions into a single aperture to free up real estate on the aircraft for future additions and cut down on interference between… More

Pier-Side, Bow Sonar Calibration Methodology for Wave Piercing Hull Forms

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Gerald Denny, Chief Sonar Engineer
Award Amount: $69,978.00
Abstract:
Alaska Native Technologies, LLC proposes to develop a Near-Field Acoustic Holographic Calibration System that would be integrated into a wave piercing Bow Sonar to provide in-port calibration capability for a vessel.

Geoacoustic Sea Bottom Characterization Using Passive, Cost-Effective Sensors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Gerald F. Denny, Chief Sonar Engineer
Award Amount: $69,494.00
Abstract:
Alaska Native Technologies (ANT) and Johns Hopkins University-Applied Physics Lab (JHU-APL) have teamed to present an innovative, solution to the acoustic inversion sensor problem by combining a new, cost effective, high gain, broadband array (JHU, sponsored by ONR Code 32) with a new UUV (glider,… More

Multi-Purpose Antenna

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Joe Imlach, Chief Mechanical Engineer
Award Amount: $250,078.00
Abstract:
The proposed MFA is a complex, highly integrated architecture comprising a number of distinct radiating structures in a very compact package. The antenna design centers around a pair of conical radiators, which are DC (Direct Current) connected to the chassis/fuselage of the aircraft, as required in… More

Exercise Torpedo Buoyancy (Recovery) System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Joseph Imlach, Chief Mechanical Engineer
Award Amount: $69,856.00
Abstract:
ANT has recently developed a similar recovery system for our own autonomous vehicle. ANT's current system lifts a vehicle of lighter negative buoyancy (~64lbs rather than 200 lbs). The system is also designed to operate at less maximum depth (200 m, rather than 900 ft). These changes will… More

Improved Coupling Factor of Personal Cooling Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Joseph Imlach, Chief Mechanical Engineer – (907) 569-0268
Award Amount: $149,842.00
Abstract:
The Microclimate Cooling Unit will use magnetic energy to cause a temperature change in the exchanger to extract heat from the gel pack, which covers the primary area of heat loss on the human body at the neck and upper back, reducing the overall body temperature. Thermocouples will monitor the gel… More
