Underwater Naval mine detection system - Hardware Development

Primary Investigators:
Dr. Jason Mitchell
 
Brief Description of Project:
Our lab is currently developing an ultra-high frequency, 8-10 MHz, sonar system for underwater visualization, intended to image out to 1 meter with sub-millimetric resolution in order to create 3D projection images of objects.

This system contains a substantial mechanical hardware component including hardware to direct acoustic waves across a target of interest. This position would help with mechanical components of the hardware design and testing.

Desired Qualifications:
CAD, Machining, Hands on fabrication, FEA
 
Nature of Supervision:
Frequent meetings with faculty and daily interactions with graduate students working on the project.
 
A Brief Research Plan (period is for 10 weeks):
Weeks 1-4 Hardware design
Weeks 4-7 Hardware fabrication
Weeks 7-10 Testing 

Number of Open Slots: 1
