USA: Conservators, Scientists to Start Three Dimensional Laser Scanning of Howell Torpedo

The scanner captures a physical object’s exact size and shape into the computer world as a digital 3-dimensional representation.“We used the Creaform 3D scanner to gather dimensional data on the surface of the torpedo in addition to the Faro Focus scanner for supplemental and color data,” said Nicholas Cifelli, a member of the NSWCCD team. “The scanner shoots a laser beam out and cameras detect the distance of the scan and once that’s done the software will create a mesh of the points to create a digital model.”The 3D imaging project is a joint undertaking and serves as an exercise to train NSWCCD engineers in the use of this highly advanced scanning equipment while providing NHHC with a finely detailed, fully interactive 3D scan of the artifact. 3D images are helpful in analyzing the dimensions of an artifact and also observing any physical changes that may occur during conservation treatment.“It’s good for visualization,” said Cifelli. “We can also compare this torpedo to how it’s supposed to be designed to see deformations and see how it’s changed over the last 115 years.”Once the scan is complete UAB plans to use it as an online interactive education and outreach tool.The Naval History and Heritage Command, located at the Washington Navy Yard, is responsible for the preservation, analysis, and dissemination of U.S. naval history and heritage. It provides the knowledge foundation for the Navy by maintaining historically relevant resources and products that reflect the Navy’s unique and enduring contributions through our nation’s history, and supports the Fleet by assisting with and delivering professional research, analysis, and interpretive services. NHHC is composed of many activities including the Navy Department Library, the Navy Operational Archives, the Navy art and artifact collections, underwater archeology, Navy histories, nine museums, USS Constitution repair facility and the historic ship Nautilus.[mappress]Press Release, May 5, 2014; Image: US Navy View post tag: start View post tag: three Conservators and scientists from Naval History and Heritage Command’s Underwater Archeology Branch (UAB) and Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division (NSWCCD) collaborated to begin a three dimensional laser scanning of the Howell Torpedo, April 30.

US Navy Experts Upgrade Two Mine Sweepers

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today US Navy Experts Upgrade Two Mine Sweepers View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navy View post tag: americas Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Panama City mine warfare In-Service Engineering Agent (ISEA) and a team of mine warfare experts recently modernized two mine sweepers within a four-month window to enable a homeport change. USS Pioneer (MCM 9) and USS Chief (MCM 14), two Avenger class minesweepers were assigned a homeport change from San Diego to Sasebo, Japan, in February but needed critical upgrades before their scheduled departure from San Diego in May.“We modernized two minesweepers in four months because that’s all the time they had and that is what we do,” said Mike Bobroski, SQQ-32 ISEA project engineer, NSWC Panama City. “Our objective was to support modernization initiatives in Seventh Fleet at the earliest opportunity and provide our shipmates with the tools and capabilities to effectively execute missions and maintain a safe posture.”To enable their forward deployed missions, the ships both needed an upgrade to the latest mine hunting sonar, the High Frequency Wide Band (HFWB) sonar set, also called the AN/SQQ-32(V)4. The AN/SQQ-32 sonar system is critical to minesweepers as it detects, classifies and localizes moored mines from a stand-off distance.Modernizations require extensive coordination between NSWC Panama City response teams and the ship’s crew, as it is more than simply swapping out parts. It requires shipboard integration and testing to ensure the equipment will perform as intended when operated by the Sailors in a threat environment. It also includes training the Sailors on how to use the updated equipment properly.NSWC Panama City’s mine warfare response teams are comprised of civilian, military and contracted specialists. And for this project, two teams, the Conditional Assessment Repair Evaluation (CARE) and Alteration Installation Teams (AIT) were integral to the modernization success.[mappress]Press Release, August 15, 2014; Image: US Navy US Navy Experts Upgrade Two Mine Sweepers View post tag: experts Authorities View post tag: Sweepers August 15, 2014 Share this article View post tag: Naval View post tag: US Navy View post tag: upgrade View post tag: two View post tag: Minelast_img read more

Scots donate wood for HMS Victory restoration

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today Scots donate wood for HMS Victory restoration View post tag: HMS Victory Authorities Scots donate wood for HMS Victory restoration Dunecht, Haddo and MacRobert Trust, three woods form Aberdeenshire, Scotland are collectively felling 11 elm and ten oak trees and shipping the wood south to donate it to HMS Victory, according to the Royal Navy.Nelson’s flagship from the Battle of Trafalgar is in the middle of a 15-year conservation project and requires the very finest materials to ensure she survives a further 250 years.The elm timbers will be largely used to maintain Victory’s hull below the waterline, especially her keel, or used to build new gun carriages.The oak will be used to replace planking – but it must undergo up to four years of ‘seasoning’ in the rope walk in Portsmouth Naval Base so it is dry and strong enough to bear the strain of hundreds of thousands of people walking on it every year.When Victory was built more than 250 years ago, it required the wood of more than 5,500 oak trees to complete the man-of-war.Over the years and through various conservation projects, much of that original timber has been replaced a variety of hardwoods.Andrew Baines, head of historic ships at the National Museum of the Royal Navy, said: “The return to oak is much welcomed. It demonstrates the serious archaeological research we are undertaking about the ship’s composition, from timber to paint analysis and our commitment to ensure she remains sustainable for centuries to come.”center_img View post tag: Royal Navy February 15, 2016 Share this articlelast_img read more

USS Fitzgerald leaves Yokosuka to start journey to US

Seven sailors lost their lives and the ship suffered damage on her starboard side above and below the waterline.
