 Dr Megumi HIROTA
Naval Ship M&UEP Research Committee, NPO

Dr. Hirota joined Technical Research and Development Institute, Ministry of Defense, Japan, (then Japan Defense Agency) in 1979, and was appointed to the Chief of Magnetic Detection Research Section in 1989.  Her research was on magnetic detection using SQUID and ship UEP signatures control.  In 2010, she retired from civil service while she was assigned as the Deputy Director, Naval System's Development Division, TRDI.  In 2012, She established with a few retired officers Naval Ship Magnetic & UEP Research Committee (NMURC), a Non Profit Organization, for new resaeach theams and from 2017 she is the representative.   


POSTER: High Temperature Superconducting Cable Application to Ship Magnetic Deperming

The requirements of ship magnetic deperming are the intensity and the space (volume) of the magnetic field imposed on to the ship.  Because of the large size of the ship to deperm, this volume consists of dimensions greater than 200 m in length and by 40 m in width and height. We studied the flat seabed coil for ship deperming and reported at UDT2018, which is the coil design with a bundle of round core cables wound by ReBCO (: Rear-Earth Barium Cupper Oxide) tapes, operating at 50K.  This time we present a survey and study on other high temperature superconductors such as BSCCO (: Bismuth Strontium Calcium Cupper Oxide) and MgB2 for the same deperming coil requirement.

 Professor Nurhan Kahyaoglu
Taknopark Commercial Enterprise Manager
Piri Reis University

Professor Nurhan Kahyaoglu had a 32-year career in the Turkish Navy. He served as an engineering officer at all levels onboard naval ships. As a naval architect&marine engineer, he has more than 25 years of progressively responsible naval and marine industry experience in naval ship design and shipyard work as well as associated technologies, including teaching as a lecturer in Turkish Naval Academy and in Istanbul Technical University; R&D, strategic&operational management, technical management activities. He also has experience in naval ship and submarine acquisition projects such as MiLGEM Corvette, A-Class MHV and Gur-Class 209T2/1400 submarine construction projects. In his last two assignments, as a Rear Admiral, he served as the Commanding Officers of Golcuk and Istanbul Naval Shipyards. He got his PhD degree in NA&ME and received his associate professorship title in hydromechanics.  He worked as a member of the board of HAVELSAN. After serving in the university senate and as the Dean of Faculty of Engineering of Piri Reis University (PRU), he is currently a lecturer in NA&ME Department of Faculty of Engineering of PRU, and also manager of PRU-Teknopark Commercial Enterprise. Prof. Kahyaoglu is a member of the Turkish Chamber of Naval Architects & Marine Engineers and SNAME. 


POSTER: Study on the Flow Around Geometrical Form of a Non-Penetrating Mast Stowage  

This poster presents an analysis for the stowage of non-penetrating masts within the sail of submarines. Flow around a suitable shaped submarine sail and masts' stowage combination is analyzed aiming at reducing the resistance and flow-noise around them as much as possible while providing an optimum storage volume to facilitate modularity during submarine production & maintenance. Developments in submarine technology, especially in the sensor technologies, have led use of non-penetrating masts for periscopes, antennae and similar equipment, rather than having the same on the masts penetrating the submarine pressure hull. Reducing the number of pressure hull penetrations help to improve structural, operational characteristics of submarine while positively facilititate submarine production work and time. Therefore, non-penetrating masts are becoming a standard for submarines. To provide a suitable stowage volume behind the submarine sails, possible standard series of geometries are selected and dimensioned, and then flow characteristics around them are analyzed including Computational Fluid Dynamics analyses (CFD). Available volume in the sails of submarines are also inspected onboard. An outcome for foil shaped non-penetrating masts' stowage is presented for prototype verification.

 Mr Huseyin Karaca
Senior Project Manager
Koc Information and Defence Technologies

Huseyin Karaca, was born in Nigde, Turkey in 1979. He received the B.E. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from the University of Eskisehir Osmangazi University, Turkey in 2002, and the master degree in computer engineering from the University of Anadolu University Turkey, 2005. He is still continuing his Ph.D. at Electrical & Electronics Engineering, Ankara University Turkey. In 2002, he joined the Department of Computer Engineering, Anadolu University as a research assistant. He had his master degree on signal processing and computer vision. He worked as Software Engineer in HAVELSAN A.S. from 2005 to 2010 and worked together with BOEING in Peace Eagle project which is one of the major defence industry projects of Turkey. He joined the KOC Information group at 2011 and still working there on a wide range of projects. During 2010-2012 he had a secondment in ULTRA Electronics Sonar Comm. Department in London/UK as a senior Software/System Designer. Currently he is working as a senior project manager. 


POSTER: Measuring Tracking Accuracy of an Underwater Detection and Tracking System   

Qualification of the unmanned underwater platforms or weapons by tracking them underwater is a difficult problem due to unavailability of the GPS signals underwater. Most of these platforms are qualified via simulations or using their own subsystem. Therefore, it is not always a good practice to qualify a system by using its own subsystems. Most of the time, a distinct, isolated qualification/test system is a better practice. Because these platforms are safety critical and mission critical, it is highly essential to test these platforms accurately during their development and testing phase. The test systems of these platforms must provide enough accuracy for the development of the platform. In this paper, the algorithms and test methods we developed for tracking an underwater platform in our underwater detection and tracking system are described. With this test system, underwater platforms can be tracked in 1-meter accuracy in wide test areas (i.e. 8 km x 15 km test area) by deploying smart buoys. Qualification of the test system to prove how 1-meter accuracy is granted in this test system is described in this paper.

 Commodore Anil Jai Singh
Vice President
Indian Maritime Foundation

Commodore Anil Jai Singh, presently the Vice President of the Indian Maritime Foundation, India's leading NGO in the maritime domain, took early retirement from the Indian Navy in March 2011 after serving as a submariner for three decades. He had the distinction of commanding four submarines and also a Fleet ship thereafter. He is also an  Anti-Submarine Warfare specialist.

 His tenures ashore included  tenures in Naval Plans and Submarine Acquisition at the Naval Headquarters and was also a senior Directing Staff at the Naval War College.  A diplomatic assignment as India's Defence Adviser in London followed and his last appointment was as the Deputy Assistant Chief (Maritime) in perspective planning in the Integrated Defence Staff in the MoD.

POSTER: The Undersea Advantage   

The Indian Navy, structured as an balanced multi-dimensional blue water navy, commensurate with India's status as the pre-eminent maritime power in the Indian Ocean and seeking a leadership role in the larger oceanic expanse of the Indo-Pacific has with the successful  completion of the first deterrence patrol by the indigenous-built SSBN INS Arihant achieved full spectrum capability in the undersea warfare domain. India's nuclear doctrine is centered on a 'No First Use' ploicy. For this to be credible, a second strike capability is not only essential but should be invulnerable. The SSBN provides this invulnerability. However, it is equally important to be equally credible in the operational and tactical war-fighting domains, Therefore SSKs and SSNs are equally important.
This poster examines India 's submarine programme and its larger Undersea warfare capability to counter the increasing underwater threat to its maritime interests and integrity. It will highlight the strengths and address the weaknesses which need to be addressed.
