K&C’s Maritime Lethality Analysis Toolset technology consists of a Vulnerability and Lethality (V/L) software program that enables analysts and mission planners to evaluate warfare scenarios in real time (minutes) and accurately predict the terminal effects of munitions against surface ships. Additionally, the software can quantify uncertainty for scenario outcomes when military intel is limited. The program features an automatic 3D ship model generator and computational modules for damage mechanisms of interest to the Navy (blast, fragments, penetration, flooding, fire). K&C is a science and engineering consulting firm which provides blast and weapon effects analysis and modeling and simulation services to several US DoD agencies and private clients. K&C aims to transition the technology into weapon programs for maritime targets and the JMEM Weaponeering System.
Karagozian and Case, Inc. (K&C) developed a new transparent armor window design for US Navy ships which: 1) increases the longevity and service-life of the windows, 2) reduces life-cycle costs, 3) enables usage of dry-erase markers and grease pencils, 4) maintains excellent visibility throughout the entire life-cycle, 5) reduces lead manufacturing times, and 6) makes replacements faster and easier. The window design can be fabricated in the range of sizes used aboard Navy ships and includes configurations equipped with embedded heating elements and radar cross-section reduction treatment. The system has been prototyped and its ballistic performance has been functionally verified. Additional component-level tests are underway to qualify the system for installations by shipbuilders on new ship construction or for replacements by the Navy on in-service ships.
