- Smart Ducts - A system of Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) acutators installed on submarine propeller ducts to increase turning radius and improve efficiency -
- Submarine Wake Alleviation - A system of SMA-based Vortex Leveraging Tabs (SVLTs) are installed on submarine hulls and used to reduce the strength of the
submarine wake making the vessel harder to detect - read more...
