2Fleet Week: Office of Naval Research Technology – DVTE (Deployable Virtual Training Environment)
Master Chief Steve French demonstrated the DVTE (Deployable Virtual Training Environment), a laptop-based system that trains Marines from the individual to the battalion staff level by using a simulation network with reconfigurable workstations capable of
3Fleet Week: Office of Naval Research Technology – DVTE (Deployable Virtual Training Environment) – 2
DVTEs combined arms network can simulate many Marine Corps roles (such as forward observer, forward air controller and fire support team leader) and platforms (such as the AAV, M1 tank, LAV, MTVR, AH-1 Cobra Helicopter and AV-8B Harrier). In addition, DV
4Fleet Week: Office of Naval Research Technology – Electromagnetic Rail Gun
The Electromagnetic rail gun uses electricity rather than chemical propellants to launch projectiles at long-range targets. The GPS-guided projectile will be launched at 2,500 meters per second, leave the Earths atmosphere and then rain down on the targe
5Fleet Week: Office of Naval Research Technology – Virtual Reality Welder Training
A virtual reality training tool, the system consists of a welding torch attached to a force feedback device, a head-mounted display, a six-degrees-of-freedom tracking system for both the torch and the users head, and external audio speakers. Trainers can
6Fleet Week: Office of Naval Research Technology – Advanced Surface Ship Watertight Enclosure
A new watertight interior door is being evaluated for the Navy that is 27 percent lighter than the existing Navy standard doors. In addition to being lighter, the door also has more structural strength and requires less maintenance than the doors currentl
7Fleet Week: Office of Naval Research Technology – Robofly
A robofly is a stealth robotic flyer that is actually the size of a fly. Squads of roboflies may one day be sent to search out targets, collect and provide information on damage assessment, or search for chemical and biological warfare agents.
8Fleet Week: Office of Naval Research Technology – Biomimetic Underwater Robot, RoboLobster
The Biomimetic Underwater Robot, RoboLobster, was developed at Northeastern Universitys Marine Science Center in Nahant, Mass. Biomimetic robots in theory are relatively small, agile and cheap, relying on electronic nervous systems, sensors and novel act
9Fleet Week: Office of Naval Research Technology – Piezoelectric Fiber Composite Materials
Piezoelectric fiber composite materials have opened the door to improved naval sonar, sonobouys, ultrasound transmitters, platforms and systems. Additionally, the ‘smart’ composite material has found its way into the civilian sector in medical ultrasound
10Fleet Week: Office of Naval Research Technology – Rubidium Atomic Clock
The ultraminiature Rubidium atomic clock is a next-generation, super-accurate clock no bigger or heavier than a matchbox. Sophisticated clocks such as these use only 1 watt of power and lose only 1 second every 10,000 years.
