A Division of STRATEGOS
The CRNE has the capacity to lift a variety of
underwater ordnance items with the capability of being one person-portable device that enables a diver, with minimal training and set up procedures, to recover underwater ordnance in an MCM environment. When used in conjunction with Strategos’ suite of Mine
Counter Measure (MCM) tools the CRNE is capable of being utilized remotely via Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV); a feature not yet seen in the MCM community that can help save costly assets and more importantly lives.
The Automatic Tow Actuated Coupler (ATAC) was designed to allow a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) to deploy the Combat Recovery for Neutralization and Exploitation Lift Balloon (CRNE); a feature never seen before in the Mine Counter Measures community. This capability will allow Naval EOD to remove the currently required diver from a very dangerous MCM exploitation mission, decrease the time on target and dramatically improve the safety of the mission set.
Often times, great technology was designed in a cubicle, with primary emphasis on the technology and little on the requirements and rigors of operational use. Strategos Technology Transference was established in 2012 to meet the needs of our clients requiring engineering and prototyping related services to allow military implementation of their technology. “Providing small solutions to big problems” has allowed us opportunity to assist these companies with:
- CAD design (Solid-works, Rhino)
- Composite, plastic and metal engineering, tooling and construction
- Man-machine interface development (ergonomics and functionality)
- Rapid prototyping services (SLS, SLA)
- Integration hardware and mechanisms (bracketry, housings and integration kits)
- Design refinement and ruggedizing
