  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Small Arms Long-Range Human Electro-Muscular Incapacitation (HEMI) Munition

    SBC: Harkind Dynamics, LLC            Topic: N183140

    Conducted Energy Weapons, like the TASER X-26, currently have insufficient effective operational range and duration of incapacitation effect to meet Warfighter needs. These limitations unnecessarily put Warfighters in close proximity to potentially dangerous persons and limit the time the Warfighter has to safely neutralize the threat. We are proposing a fuzed, extended range, long-duration, human ...

  7. Scalable Compact Ultra-short Pulse Laser Systems (SCUPLS)

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: N183139

    The USMC is seeking an innovative solution to develop a Scalable Compact Ultra-short Pulse Laser Systems (SCUPLS) weapon system comprising two USPLs: 1) femtosecond (fs) USPL that can initiate the Plasma (igniter laser), and 2) nanosecond USPL to flash heat the ignited plasma to create enhanced non-lethal effects such as flash bang effects, thermal ablation for pain, and delivery of intelligible v ...

  8. Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) High Data Rate Communications

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N171001

    During Phase II, FIRST RF will develop and evaluate concepts enabling beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) communications using field-deployable multi-band arrays. The novel multi-band array topology allows fielding of a compact and lightweight system that operates over L-Band, S-Band, C-Band, and Ku-Band, has a 360 field of regard in azimuth, and can maintain a 20 Mb/s data link over each band at distance ...

  9. Selective Emission of Light Utilizing Functionally-Graded Energetic Materials

    SBC: Special Aerospace Services            Topic: N172115

    Flares are commonly used in the defense industry as light utilizing functionally-graded energetic materials for airborne expendable countermeasure applications. However, current flare production processes are rudimentary because they limit design flexibility and incur significant start up and maintenance costs due to low annual production volume. Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a superior alternati ...

  10. Development of a Compact Sensor for in-situ Thermospheric Neutral Wind Measurements from a CubeSat

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: N182137

    Knowledge of the thermospheric neutral wind remains perhaps the most elusive and yet most important parameter to understanding the complex feedback interactions that take place in the near space environment of the Earth. The lack of understanding of the interactions between the neutral atmosphere and ionosphere currently hampers efforts to predict Earths daily ionospheric and thermospheric conditi ...
