Technology Profile * Lithium Hydroxide Curtain: This removes hazardous carbon dioxide from the atmosphere of disabled sub- marines. The curtain improves the crewmembers' ability to survive while awaiting rescue.
Every submarine in the U.S. Navy's fleet has been outfitted with the life- saving curtains. • NR-1 Submarine Sonar: Battelle took on the challenge of modernizing the sonar system for the U.S. Navy's
NR-1 nuclear-powered submarine while keeping costs at a minimum.
Battelle staff selected off-the-shelf technology, re-engineered it to improve its efficiency and installed the sonar system at about one-fifth the cost of a custom-made model, in a fraction of the time.
