  1. A Cognitive Architecture for Naval Mine Countermeasures (MCM)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N121082

    Current Mine Countermeasure (MCM) operations attempt to balance risk and time via processes that are staff and time intensive. The range of experience in the MCM staff further complicates these processes. Existing tools such as MEDAL provide some support to address these issues, but those tools lack a comprehensive coverage of the process; in particular, there is no direct replanning support. Addi ...

  2. A Conformal Packaging and Installation Technique for In Situ Sensors in Extreme Environments

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N112123

    Sporian Microsystems Inc. has spent the last several years developing polymer derived SiCN sensor and associated packaging technology for application temperatures up to 1350 & #176;C, and demonstrated them in the combustion environments of a range of commercial burner rigs and aerospace turbine engines. Based on our expertise in high-temperature materials and packaging processes, we propose to dev ...

  3. A Miniaturized SERS Based Sensor Technology for detecting toxic contaminants in oxygen from aircraft On-Board Oxygen Generating Systems (OBOGS)

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N122120

    Aircraft equipped with On-Board Oxygen Generating Systems (OBOGS) selectively filter nitrogen and other gaseous contaminants in air from the aircraft's engine to provide the aircrew with an oxygen enriched breathing gas. Under suboptimal operating conditions, toxic byproducts can breach the OBOGS and enter the aircrew's oxygen supply. Current contaminant sensor technologies tend to lack ...

  4. A Modular Integrated PM VSD system

    SBC: UQM Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed program is to determine the feasibility of a high efficiency, modular Permanent Magnet (PM) Variable Speed Drive (VSD) system intended for use in auxiliary shipboard applications. The proposed system provides the functionality and performance benefits of PM VSDs at a low overall cost. The system is designed to be modular and fully integrated, with a flexibility ...

  5. Absorption and/or Scattering of Light by Small Particles

    SBC: Capco Inc.            Topic: N132100

    Capco proposes using materials developed in previous SBIR obscurant research efforts to prepare UVCM devices for test and evaluation. UV absorption will be optimized through particle geometry and processing parameters.

  6. Absorption and/or Scattering of Light by Small Particles

    SBC: Capco Inc.            Topic: N132100

    The objectives of the Phase II effort are to demonstrate the safety of the developed obscurant device for use in US Navy aircraft as an airborne expendable countermeasure, to optimize performance and to make the obscurant device fully compatible with existing Navy countermeasure dispensing systems.

  7. Active Transfer Learning for Intelligent Tutoring

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N15AT013

    We propose an intelligent assessment concept that will discover and reason about KSAs in multiple instruc-tional domains and settings. SoarTech will team with world-class researchers from the University of Califor-nia, Davis and the University of Memphis to research and develop TARGET: Transfer via Active Requests to Generalize Effective Training. TARGET will enhance SoarTechs assessment system DA ...

  8. Adaptive Diesel Engine Control Via Variable Valve Timing

    SBC: Electro Mechanical Associates Inc            Topic: N133148

    Large, open chamber Diesel engines are designed with compression ratios of 16 to 18:1 to facilitate cold starting. This is too high for best economy which is 14 to 15:1. Furthermore, these engines are designed for high power for highway vehicles with reserve for hill climbing and maneuvering. The objective is to demonstrate a combination of simple mechanisms designed for the Caterpillar C-12 to im ...

    SBC: Adaptronics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The extension of classical frequency domain and wavelet transformation adaptive subband decompositions result in arbitrary time frequency til. The use of a time-varying tree-structured filterbank is proposed to provide a signal dependent transform which is capable of tracking non-stationarities via local reconfigurations. Under stationary assemptions, the filterbank converges to a unitary operat ...

  10. Advanced Ballistic Shielding for Crew Served Weapons Stations

    SBC: GS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N122132

    The Navy in support of the sailor has identified the need for an advanced ballistic shield for Crew Served Weapons Stations that will allow for a required level of ballistic protection without interfering with other shipboard duties that need to be performed. This proposed system will protect the sailor from the increased asymmetric threats that are faced on the high seas as well as during close s ...
