MTTC / Navy Fleet Maintenance Projects-

Current Status (02/01/01)

Portable Chlorinator. The MTTC portion of this concept demonstration has been completed onboard USS CARR. Based on the results to date, NAVSEA has decided to procure additional units and install them on all saltwater intakes on this ship to determine the most optimum shipboard configuration for fleetwide introduction. The operational use of this device has shown that biogrowth can be significantly reduced using clorination. Ultimately, this would result in reduction in the requirement for extensive cleaning of shipboard seawater systems.

Bilge Paint Qualification. Both the EuroNavy and Alocit formulations used in this project have passed Navy requirements and fleetwide approval is pending in the near future. Significant reductions in shipboard sailor workload will be realized when using these epoxy coatings. This project has been completed.

K-Flex ECO Insulation. NAVSEA has determined that this material is suitable for fleet use and official fleet notification is pending. Navy officials have documented 40% labor savings over calcium silicate and 25% savings over fiberglass. Use of this material will greatly reduce fleet costs, and when incorporated in the shipbuilding, will significantly reduce construction costs. This project has been completed.

Remote Valve Actuators. The testing period for the Limitorque models MX-5 and MX-10 on the USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT (CNV-71) has been extended to 31 March 2001, at the request of the Navy. To date, the valves have cycled over 250 times in fleet operations. The Navy operators have been very positive about the valves' performance.

ECOTherm High Temperature Insulation. Test sections were installed on the USS BOXER in April 2000. The MTTC contractor, BBN, Inc., and NAVSEA conducted an interim inspection of the BOXER installation in September 2000. A final analysis will be conducted early in 2001 and the test sections will be restored to their original configuration prior to the ship's deployment.

Distiller Anti-Scale. NAVSSES has proposed a 2-year project which would require funding that extends into FY02. MTTC will award a contract when FY00 funding becomes available. SSES and NAVSEA have provided all required documentation.

Anti Sweat Paint. NAVSEA, MTTC and GeoCenters have agreed on a statement of work and a work order has been issued to GeoCenters.

Stratica Flooring. Based on installation proofing conducted during this project, the procedures were verified. As a result, Stratica Tile was recently approved for fleetwide use in surface ships and submarines. This project has been completed.

Boat Davit Improvements. MTTC and NAVSSES Philadelphia have signed a contract to commence this project.

Vertical Package Conveyers. NAVSSES Philadelphia and NAVSEA are currently developing the documentation required to proceed with this project.

Composite Connectors. Glenair, Inc., has produced and delivered four harness assemblies to MTTC. The MTTC has provided these to the Navy who, in return has forwarded them to Litecom, Inc. for installation of the Navy SBIR produced connectors. The completed assemblies will be tested at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Louisville site, prior to at-sea testing.
