Tridentis was just awarded a contract, via our GSA Schedule, to perform all of the engineering and design work to install a SOLAS approved Rescue Boat Davit on the NOAA Ship Nancy Foster. Tridentis will develop all electrical, mechanical and structural drawings necessary for a shipyard to install the Rescue Boat Davit. These drawings will be approved by the American Bureau of Shipping and Tridentis will make sure that these drawings move quickly through the approval process. Additionally, we will update the trim and stability booklet, develop a statement of work, and provide NOAA with shipyard cost estimates. Tridentis continues its long history of providing this type of support to NOAA.read more
Tridentis was just awarded a Phase I Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contract with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). During the execution of this contract, Tridentis will perform a “clean sheet” design of an autonomous mobile surface coastal monitor that uses “green” power sources, has modular capability to allow for “plug and play” of new sensors and technology, and provides calibration/validation for NOAA and other optical satellite sensors.
Tridentis will design a highly efficient, stable platform that makes the use of green power for propulsion and systems power, that makes it attractive for unmanned surface vessel (USV) operations. This is significant because green energy sources are typically not as energy dense as fossil fuels, which can hamper the design process.
This platform will be designed around one or more modular sensor bays to support the employment of a multitude of sensors as they are needed by the five line offices within NOAA. We intend on designing the modular bay to be easily serviceable while attempting to standardize the interfaces where possible.
By approaching this requirement with a clean sheet design, we can enhance the power efficiency and utility of the platform that would otherwise have been an add-on to an existing vessel. The platform itself will be a custom design developed to support the coastal sensing mission. It will be flexible enough to allow for almost any sensor to be easily retrofitted, and will employ sensors for atmospheric, sea/air interface, and subsurface parameters.
The design that will come out of this Phase I SBIR will have multiple applications that could impact numerous agencies outside of NOAA. This design could also have significant applications for the United States Navy and United States Coast Guard.read more

Tridentis was just awarded a Phase I SBIR (Small Business Innovative Research) Contract with ONR (Office of Naval Research). The topic that was awarded to Tridentis is the development of “Technology for Ship to Shore Connector Concepts with a Combined High Speed and Payload Fraction” (Navy SBIR 2015.1 – Topic N151-075). Over the next year, Tridentis will work on developing a concept design for a surface connector for ONR that is capable of carrying troops and equipment from the Sea Base to shore. Our landing craft will be capable of carrying 210 LT of cargo while traveling 20 knots at a distance of up to 200 nm from the beach. This craft will have beaching capabilities while being able to interface with the Sea Base and the well decks of US Navy Ships.
Bringing troops and equipment from ship to shore is a hugely challenging and important challenge for the Navy & Marine Corps, and our nation’s military, industrial, technological, and design talent have not been able to solve it, despite over 50 years of effort. As our expeditionary operating concepts have changed from short ship to shore movement, to operations from over the horizon into littoral waters defended by precision guided munitions, our methods and capabilities to move fighters and material ashore have remained unchanged. The ability of our naval forces to operate most effectively in the 21st century and implement the various operational concepts such as LOTS (Logistics Over The Shore), OMFTS (Operational Maneuver from the Sea) and modern Sea Basing are critically dependent on a vehicle (connector) that can quickly and reliably move people and material from ship to shore from over the horizon in most weather conditions.
Tridentis’s task is essentially to design a landing craft (or “connector” vehicle) that is small enough to be transported in an amphibious ship well deck, or deck loaded and offloaded on a Navy, Army Preposition Ship, or Military Sealift Command vessel. Then the “connector” must be able to be launched at sea, carry significant cargo, smoothly on and off load it, (potentially under fire) and have good speed and range. This design challenge has never been satisfactorily solved. Over the next year, Tridentis will develop the concept design that will meet this challenge.read more

Tridentis was proud to support the Flagship Section of American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) with their Annual Golf Tournament on May 5th. Held at Andrew’s Air Force Base, Tridentis was both the sponsor for a hole and entered a foursome in the tournament.
Held as a fundraiser to support the Flagship Section, which represents the greater DC metro area, this 2014 version of the tournament was a great success. Though it was Tridentis’ first year acting as a sponsor, our strong support for this organization likely means that it won’t be the last.
The Tridentis foursome played well and greatly enjoyed the beautiful weather and nice course. With a score low enough to tie for third, we left feeling accomplished and excited for next year’s tournament. Thank you to the organizers for putting on a great tournament and allowing Tridentis to gain exposure among the ASNE members.read more
Tridentis was just awarded a three year $2.3M prime contract by Military Sealift Command (MSC) to perform engineering services on the USS MOUNT WHITNEY Extended Service Life Program. Our work on this contract will consist of supporting the Engineering Directorate of MSC in the areas of marine engineering, naval architecture, electrical and electronics engineering, maintenance engineering, shipboard testing and inspections and failure analysis. The majority of the work on this contract will be performed in Washington DC and the ship’s homeport of Gaeta, Italy.
MSC is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the USS MOUNT WHITNEY (LCC 20). The USS MOUNT WHITNEY has been in commission over 40 years and is at the end of her designed service life. The US Navy has decided to extend her service life through 2039.
