  1. A Collaborative Interface for Teacher-Student Interaction in Virtual Environments

    SBC: STRANGE LOOP GAMES INC.            Topic: edIES17R0005

    In prior projects, including a 2015 ED/IES SBIR award, the team developed two immersive multiplayer virtual game environments. In Eco and Colony, middle school students collaboratively apply scientific practices within the virtual worlds to address challenges, such as the availability of resources and energy and maintaining clean water. With this Phase I funding, the team is developing a prototype ...

  2. Materials Development for Affordable Maritime Compatible Radio Frequency Materials

    SBC: Vector ElectroMagnetics LLC            Topic: N162117

    The primary objective of this Phase I SBIR is to develop and demonstrate a State-of-Art Multi-Functional RF Material System applicable to a multitude of Navy Sea, Air and Land platforms that is producible in large quantities, affordable, maintainable, and sustainable. The proposed Multi-Functional RF Material System can be tailored to provide low to high dielectric and magnetic properties and low ...

  3. Shipboard Radar Cross Section and Radio Frequency Performance Verification of Low Observable Airborne Platforms

    SBC: STAR DYNAMICS CORPORATION            Topic: N162118

    Current and, more importantly due to increasing threat capabilities, future US Navy (USN) low-observable (LO) aircraft require operational repair and LO performance verification well beyond all other USN airborne assets. Maintaining high-fidelity LO characteristics is particularly challenging in operational environments and even with best maintenance-practices, insidious radar cross section (RCS) ...

  4. SiC-Based High Voltage Capacitor Charging Innovations

    SBC: IAP RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N162119

    The Navy is currently developing a Pulsed Power System (PPS) to power an Electromagnetic Railgun (EMRG). The PPS uses a capacitor bank as the source of the very high current required by the EMRG for operation. EMRG requirements necessitate the use of a high power density (>3MW/m3) DC/DC converter capable of a 10 capacitor recharge rate per minute. This capacitor bank is comprised of 325 kJ capaci ...

  5. Scalable Adaptive Laser Array for Additive Manufacturing (SALAAM)

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: N162130

    The proposed Scalable Adaptive Laser Array for Additive Manufacturing (SALAAM) concept is based on emerging high-power coherent fiber array and adaptive beam control technologies that have been under development by the Optonicus for DoD (directed energy) applications for almost a decade. In the SALAAM approach, the multiple beams for LAM are generated in a coherent fiber-collimator array system t ...

  6. Photonic Switch for Laser Power Distribution

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: N171013

    A very fast 1xN optical switch capable of handling high-optical power is proposed. It is designed for switching laser power from a central source to multiple outputs using photonic switch technology that does not have any mechanical moving parts. It is designed to have a very compact size and high-reliability operation suitable for airborne environment. The switching speed will be >10 W of optical ...

  7. Lightweight Self-Start System for T56 Engine Driven Aircraft

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N171028

    The Navy needs a small, self-contained, lightweight system for starting E-2D T56 engines to allow for remote field operations. We propose to develop a Rocket Fuel Starter (RFS) to meet Navy needs. Our RFS uses a liquid-fuel rocket engine to drive a turbine that generates shaft power to start the T56 engine. We project our RFS will fit in available spaces and will weigh significantly less than 200 ...

  8. Cavitation Peening for Improved Ballistic Performance

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: N171037

    A need exists to improve the ballistic response of armor for Littoral Combat Ships. Simply increasing armor thickness is unacceptable because the associated increase in weight and space would reduce vessel performance speed and range. Surface treatment techniques for current armor materials such as steel, aluminum and ceramic may improve armor performance significantly without an associated weight ...

  9. Cyber Threat Insertion and Evaluation Technology for Navy Ship Control Systems

    SBC: Amida Technology Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N171054

    We will create a proof-of-concept evaluation environment where white-hat hackers can create and test known and suspected Trojan circuits, evaluate their behaviors and impacts, and assess the Trojan circuits against various countermeasures. The appliance will be able to replicate or emulate, in hardware, a Trojan and its trigger in the context of a predetermined design; to discover methods to exerc ...

  10. Oil-less Cooking Deep Fat Fryer (DFF) Replacement

    SBC: Deep Springs Technology            Topic: N171064

    Deep Springs Technology (DST) proposes a novel solid state cooking system to replace the legacy deep fat fryer currently aboard the Ohio Class Submarines. The proposed solid state system is consistent with requirements of the Navy and has significant advantages over other cooking technologies. Deployment of the proposed system will eliminate fire hazards associated with cooking oil; eliminate the ...
