MTTC / Navy Fleet Maintenance Projects-

Current Status (05/01/01)

Remote Valve Actuators. The Limotorque models MX-5 amd MX-10 were removed from the USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT (CVN-71) at the end of March, per the contract. AMSEC is in the process of analyzing the results and will produce a test report in the near future. Initial ship reports were positive, but AIRLANT has commented tha the actuators need additional work to reduce the size of the devices and permit more efficient operation. Upon receipt of the test report, NAVSEA will make a determination regarding fleet use.

ECOTherm High Temperature Insulation. USS BOXER (LHD-4) deployed in early March 2001. In late February, BBNT, Inc. restored some of the remaining ECOTherm, but left some at the request of the ship for continued analysis. BBNT, Inc. will produce a test report and forward it to the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) for a determination regarding fleet use.

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.

Boat Davit Improvements. MTTC and NAVSSES Philadelphia have signed a contract to commence this project. Initially, engineers will be looking at various new brake materials and corrosion prevention techniques to see if they are applicable. If so, selected samples will be tested in representative hardware.

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

Composite Connectors. Litecom, Inc. under the SBIR, has installed the composite connectors on the wiring harnesses that were provided to them by MTTC. They have returned these harnesses to the Navy In-Service Engineering Agent (ISEA) in Louisville for system testing.


CIWS Acutator Cam Pin. The Phalanx ISEA has provided the Statement of Work to MTTC. A contract to General Dynamics Armament Systems, Burlington VT will be awarded a contract as soon as an MTTC contract and adequate funding are provided.


Speedwrap Insulation. NAVSEA has validated the Speedwrap requirement. The project is expected to be initiated in 4th quarter, fiscal year 2001.  USS Theodore Roosevelt will be the test platform.


ArmaChek Insulation Covering. NAVSEA is currently reviewing the requirements inormation to confirm the validity of this project. A decision on whether to proceed is expected in June/July 2001.


Laser Induced Surface Improvement (LISI) of LCAC Lift Fan Blades. All necessary documentation has been received from the Navy. A contract with ST2, Inc., will be awarded as soon as an MTTC contract and adequate funding are provided.


Electrospark Deposition (ESD) In-situ repair of hydraulic rams. All necessary documentation has been recived from the Navy. A contract with NSWC/Carderock will be awarded as soon as an MTTC contract and adequate funding are provided.
