  4. Atomic Triaxial Magnetometer

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N19AT006

    Vescent Photonics and MIT Lincoln Labs (MIT-LL) propose to develop a quantum-based vector magnetometer with low size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP+C) for Navy applications. The proposed system will rely on probing magnetically-sensitive, atomic-like transitions of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond to provide stable, high-bandwidth readout of the vector magnetic field with sub-picotesla sen ...

  5. Quench Monitoring and Control System for High-Temperature Superconducting Coils

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: N19AT016

    The Navy has been developing superconducting systems, based on high-temperature superconductors (HTS), for future use on Navy ships. One of the challenges associated with superconducting magnets is the possibility of a quench, which is an event where a local hot spot develops within the superconductor that quickly spreads throughout the device, driving it into its normal and dissipative state. Sen ...

  6. Open Cell Ring Down Spectrometer to Measure Atmospheric Visible and Infrared Ambient Light Extinction

    SBC: Handix Scientific LLC            Topic: N191040

    Directed Energy systems have a variety of applications in the US Navy, but are affected by particles in the atmosphere; therefore, accurate measurements of particle-induced light extinction are critical to the development and deployment of DE systems. However, no commercial instruments exist capable of measuring ambient extinction at DE-relevant wavelengths. Here we propose an accurate, robust sys ...

  7. Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste Heat

    SBC: Mantel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19AT013

    The U.S. Navy seeks methods to improve the fuel economy of marine diesel engines through utilization of waste heat. Low temperature engine jacket water, lubrication oil, and aftercooler air are largely untapped streams of thermal energy on these ships, but their utilization circumvents many operation challenges associated with exhaust gases. For example, variable and high exhaust gas temperatures ...

  8. High Speed Spinning Scroll Expander (HiSSSE)- Organic Rankine Cycle for Increased Naval Ship Power Density and Fuel Efficiency

    SBC: Air Squared, Inc.            Topic: N19AT013

    Waste heat from Naval diesel generators provides significant opportunity to introduce organic Rankine cycles (ORC) to increase their fuel efficiency. The objective of the proposed effort is to design and demonstrate a high-speed, spinning scroll expander (HiSSSE) ORC as a power dense waste heat recovery system for diesel generators on ships. The system will leverage Air Squareds spinning scroll te ...

  9. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT006

    Locating objects that vibrate is a way to discern potential threats and locate targets. However, current vibrometry technology typically measures only the global vibration of target and cannot create an extended spatial measurement of the vibration profile of the target. These solutions cannot identify what the target is, nor can they locate potential weak spots on the target, because they lack sp ...

  10. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc            Topic: AF19AT017

    Metamaterials and photonic crystals are engineered composites that exhibit novel and interesting properties not found using ordinary materials. They have been shown to allow extraordinary control over the electromagnetic field, including molding the flow of energy, amplitude profile of the field, phase of the waves, intermodal coupling, and more. To achieve such control, a set of tools and procedu ...
