  1. Noninvasive Hydration Monitor for Challenging Environments

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N182114

    A noninvasive wearable sensor to accurately measure and inform the hydration of naval aviators in the flight environment is proposed. It uses multifrequency bio-electric impedance analysis to accurately measure skin hydration and Total Body Water content and provide feedback to the user in real time. The proposed wrist-worn band is self-contained, durable, suitable for an extreme range of environm ...

  2. Fiber-Optic Condition-Based Management System

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: N182125

    There is a need for a condition based management system to continuously monitor aging and new naval systems. A fiber optic (FO) system is uniquely positioned to provide accurate, non-invasive, and continuous real-time assessment of parameters such as temperature, load, vibration, impact events, and acoustic emissions. In addition, new power-over-fiber methods have been identified to generate contr ...

  3. Minimization of In-Band Interferers on Airborne Anti-Submarine System Performance

    SBC: RDA INC.            Topic: N182116

    Airborne ASW systems and sonobuoys operate in selected portions of the acoustic spectrum. Passive and active sensors not only contend with friendly forces operating in-band but must contend with other non-cooperative signals that degrade sensor performance including environmental interference, unintended out of band transmissions from our own sensors, and commercial interference from other sources ...
