  1. High Sensitivity RF Spectral Monitor/Detector Payload for ScanEagle Unmanned Aerial System

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: N142114

    The predictive understanding of Radio Frequency electromagnetic propagation is critical for the performance of Navy systems. To acquire the necessary data, the Navy needs a system integrated with the ScanEagle Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) capable of analyzing distant signals of opportunity while meeting strict Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) requirements placed on hardware payloads. To meet this n ...

  2. Fine Braided Tungsten Reinforced Ceramic Composites for Ultra Sharp Structures

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: N142119

    Future hypersonic vehicles will be required to fly extended, long term trajectories where the bod-ies must exhibit high lift-to-drag (L/D) ratios. The need for reduced drag means that the nosetips and leading edges must have small radii, shallow wedge angles, and be erosion resistant. Desira-ble dimensions include a nose radius on the order of 0.040 inch and a wedge half angle of about 3. This rad ...

  3. Ternary Single Crystal Tonpilz Transducers with Reduced Side Lobes for Wide Angle Beam Steering

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N142111

    The goal of this Phase I program is to develop broadband single crystal sonar for the ATT. Single crystal piezoelectric is a high energy density, highly efficient piezoelectric material that is being used to develop acoustic and ultrasonic transducers with bandwidths much higher than has been possible with conventional ceramic materials. For sonar, broad bandwidth is especially important for opera ...

  4. Advanced Ceramic High Speed and High Voltage Capacitors

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N142123

    TRS Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop volume efficient, fast discharge, high breakdown strength capacitors with stable dielectric properties for utilization in pulse power systems. The proposed ceramic capacitor will combine the best features of high energy density, low dielectric loss and high reliability. The capacitors developed on this program will have an energy density >0.6J/cc, low pow ...

  5. High Speed and High Voltage Capacitors for Naval HPRF Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: PolyK Technologies, LLC            Topic: N142123

    We propose to develop polymer-based negative-positive-zero (NPO) capacitors by combining our proprietary dielectric formulations, film processing technology, and unique capacitor design. As polymer film capacitors have intrinsically high dielectric breakdown strength than multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC), our capacitors will be able to provide high operation voltage > 80 kV. The dielectric for ...

  6. PCM-Based Ocean Thermal Energy Harvesting System

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N142116

    In this SBIR program, Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) proposes a PCM-based ocean thermal energy harvesting system to provide reliable, renewable, on-board electrical generation for autonomous underwater vehicles and platforms. This affordable and scalable system harvests energy from the natural temperature gradients that exist in the ocean. ACTs novel design efficiently extracts heat fro ...

  7. Anti-Jamming Capability for RT-1944/U Radio

    SBC: FIDELITY COMTECH, INC.            Topic: N131029

    The Phase 1 SBIR project addressed a significant vulnerability of the SeaLancet RT-1944/U Communication System: its susceptibility to jamming. This vulnerability can affect the ability of the Navy to provide Mine Countermeasures because the SeaLancet is being used as part of the Mine Countermeasures Mission Package in the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Program. The overall objective of this Phase II e ...

  8. Aerostat Communications Relay from Unmanned Surface Vehicle

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: N131039

    The CommLift Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is an alternate and novel approach to providing long range, over-the-horizon, communications for surface vessels; it uses a tethered electric UAV to carry a radio payload to suitable altitude, rather than an aerostat. The tether provides power from an unmanned surface vessel (USV) to the UAV and also bi-directional com ...

  9. Benzoxazine Matrix Composite Bearing Materials for Arresting Gear Components


    Carrier aviation is dependent on the ability to recover aircraft expeditiously and safely aboard ship. The system that arrests the aircraft, the Arresting Gear system, utilizes slippers or bearing materials between moving components. A major shortcoming of the current slipper material is its swelling when exposed to ethylene glycol, which causes clearance issues in the operating equipment, resulti ...

  10. Simultaneous multi-beam high-bandwidth conformal tactical data link antenna systems

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N132089

    In this Phase II effort, FIRST RF will demonstrate array technology enabling highly directive multi-beam TCDL communications using phased arrays integrated on the Fire Scout UAV platform. Phased array systems allow for dynamic beam steering with graceful degradation. These arrays also have the benefit of a narrow azimuth radiation pattern conducive to point-to-point communications and networking w ...
