Leonardo DRS, Inc. recently announced that it has been awarded contracts valued at over $1 billion, when fully funded, to provide the integrated electric propulsion components for the U.S. Navy’s next-generation Columbia-class submarine. […]
The U.S. Navy has awarded Northrop Grumman a production contract for the company’s new inertial sensor module that can overcome jamming of Global Position System signals, a key concern for military navigation operations. Designed with magnetic sensing along with a multiple of other sensing capabilities, the unit is a next-generation sensor that significantly improves maritime navigation in Global Positioning System-denied environments for ships and submarines. […]
AMSC (American Superconductor Corporation) has entered into a delivery contract for approximately $8 million with Textron Systems for a pre-production High-Temperature Superconductor (HTS) Magnetic Influence Mine Countermeasure Payload System.
High-temperature superconductor degaussing systems from American Superconductor (AMSC) are increasingly finding their way aboard a new class of U.S. Navy ships, designed to cloak their magnetic signatures from enemy vessels and underwater mines. […]
General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems has been awarded a contract by US Naval Air Systems Command to continue development and evaluation of tailored configurations of the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System and Advanced Arresting Gear as a potential foreign military sale to the French Navy for their next generation aircraft carrier, Porte-Avions Nouvelle Génération. […]
In concert with a new strategy for autonomous technologies, the US Navy is launching a research project to develop a system based on a high-temperature superconducting (HTS) magnetic source with an advanced acoustic generator to […]
