Abstract:

The long-term goal of the research is to expand mission capabilities of Naval Special Warfare NSW in the underwater attachment of munitions and sensor packages on a variety of surfaces, quickly, covertly, and under extreme environmental conditions. The objective of this program is to investigate new technologies for adhering and attaching to surfaces underwater in conditions found throughout the world. The state of current attaching technology presently limits mission capabilities because of duration of cure or complete ineffectiveness in cold seawater temperatures. The primary thrust of this effort is to overcome conventional attaching technology limitations in providing NSW the capability to complete attaching tasks unrestricted of seawater conditions.
