Hull inspection technologies
The Navy is looking for information on diver hull search or navigation systems and component technologies to use in ordnance disposal operations, such as searching and inspecting ships' hulls and berthing areas. This is the first step in evaluating alternatives and supporting research.
Systems should, among other requirements, record where a diver has searched; mark locations containing items of interest; be interoperable with a ship hull database; be able to record different types of marks; include real-time communication from topside to diver, diver to topside and diver to diver.
The text of the request for information is on FedBizOpps.gov, solicitation no. N6133104TMM01. Responses are due by Nov. 24.
