Lt. Andrew Wiese evaluates a catapult capacity selector valve calculator provided by the Office of Naval Research during flight operations aboard the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75). The CSV calculator is a personal digital assistant that would replace paper lookup tables and allow flight deck personnel to compute the proper settings for an aircraft carrier steam catapult. The device is being provided through the Tech Solutions program, a rapid-response technology development program that funds government laboratories to produce prototype solutions for problems identified by sailors and Marines.
