General Atomics Awarded Contract from Office of Naval Research for New LDUUV Motor

12/20/2017

SAN DIEGO, CA. --- General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) announced today that it has been awarded a contract from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to design and deliver an advanced permanent-magnet propulsion motor intended for use in large displacement unmanned undersea vehicles (LDUUVs). 

“GA-EMS has taken a leadership role and committed significant internal resources to researching and developing new and unique electric power and energy technologies to support a variety of undersea vehicles and platforms,” stated Rolf Ziesing, vice president of Programs at GA-EMS. “After completing a review of our motor’s capabilities and the applicability for undersea operations, we are very excited to take the next step to design and deliver a second-generation propulsion motor to ONR for further evaluation and eventual on-vehicle testing.” 

Over the next 18 to 20 months, GA-EMS will design, build, and test the advanced permanent-magnet propulsion motor and deliver a complete motor system to ONR. Characterization and testing of the motor system will be conducted by the Pennsylvania State University Applied Research Laboratory (PSU-ARL). 

PSU-ARL is a center of excellence supporting the US Navy and ONR for undersea propulsion modeling and testing. In 2015, ONR funded a successful year-long study with GA-EMS and PSU-ARL to assess the operating characteristics of the motor’s design. 


General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) Group is a global leader in the research, design, and manufacture of first-of-a-kind electromagnetic and electric power generation systems.
