Check out this recent article in GE’s Txchnology online publication discussing Vortex Hydro Energy’s VIVACE system for harvesting power from relatively slow river currents. Also, take a look at our VIVACE project page describing our involvement in developing and fielding earlier prototypes of the energy harvesting system.

We’re excited about several SBIR topics that we’re pursuing on our own and with existing partners. We’ve also identified several additional topics of interest. Perhaps your organization has expertise in these areas and would like to partner with us. If so, please contact our Director of Business Development, Jerry Cole (jcole at sealandaire.com).
N121-025 Detecting Submerged Targets Using Very Low-Frequency Signals
To be successful on this topic, we believe it is imperitive to collect in-air and underwater VLF data to verify the prototype sensor’s performance. We have the ability to collect extremely low frequency acoustic data (<<1Hz) in water and this experience will translate well to airborne systems. We are interested in supporting signal processing experts to demonstrate this capability for the Navy.
Evaluate the potential of using underwater infrasonic signals for the in-air detection of submerged targets.
Infrasonics, Water–Air interface, Vertical Dipole, Horizontal Dipole
N121-074 Fat Line Towed Array Straightening System
We have experience with towed array components as well as energy storage and small, energy efficient actuation / propulsion. We also have capabilities with array hydrodynamic modeling. If you have an idea but aren’t sure how to implement it, we would be interested in partnering with you to submit a proposal.
OBJECTIVE: The objective is to develop a system that would keep the Fat Line (TB-16 series and TB-34) arrays straight and horizontal while towed at speeds as low as 1.5 knots to improve array effectiveness and reduce damage in shallow waters.
KEYWORDS: Drag inducing drogue; aft pulling propulsion; active buoyancy control; rheological fluids; towed array droop; low speed towed array

The new SBIR solicitation has been released! SeaLandAire is interested in partnering with other small businesses to address these opportunities. Our experience in SBIR projects and developing fielded prototype systems can improve your company’s likelihood of winning an award! We have a good record of receiving Phase 1 awards (>40% of DoD SBIR proposals submitted) and a similar success rate for Phase 2 transition. We’ll be posting several lists of topics we would like to team with you on – look for updates in the near future!

SeaLandAire participated in the 2011 Navy Opportunity Forum for Phase 2 SBIR awardees in Crystal City, VA. Thanks to all who made the event a success, and all who stopped by our booth to discuss our products and services. As always, please feel free to contact us regarding teaming opportunities – together we can do more than when we work separately. We look forward to talking to you again!
