  1. High-Efficiency, High-Power Density III-V Multijunction Solar Cells on Si and Hybridsil

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N14AT003

    This DOD Phase I STTR program would develop III-V multijunction based solar cells, using Virginia Tech"s InGaP/GaAs/InGaAs multijunction cells technique in combination with NanoSonic"s pioneering Hybridsil antireflection copolymer nanocomposite materials, which afford high levels of antireflection, temperature and abrasion resistance, impact durability and hydrophobicity (self cleaning). Such an a ...

  2. Innovative Unified Damage Mechanisms-Based Model to Predict Remaining Useful Life for Rotorcraft Structures

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N14AT002

    Most of current available methods for prediction of fatigue failure -such as cumulative damage models, cyclic plastic energy hypothesis, crack propagation rate models, and empirically-derived relationships -are based on empirical relations and their application requires many unknown parameters that must be experimentally determined or calibrated for specific locations/critical areas. Also, the afo ...

  5. Development of Characterization of Failure Modes for Mechanical Components


    A database-driven approach is needed which characterizes the failure modes of the mechanical components of submarine systems under extreme loadings. Such an application must provide automation of the component shock qualification process through an automated capability while providing component-level qualification based upon similarity of components and failure modes. Certification of shock worthi ...

  6. Durable Hydrophobic Nanocomposite Insulating Coating for High Voltage VLF/LF Antenna Components

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N14AT025

    The Fixed Submarine Broadcasting System is a low frequency (LF) and very low frequency (VLF) communication system that provides independent and survivable connectivity to the United States Navy nuclear submarine force. The Navy operates six high powered VLF and seven LF transmitter facilities at different locations around the world. These outdoor transmission antennas operate at extremely high pow ...

  7. COAXIS- Course of Action Extra-Intelligence System

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: N14AT024

    COAXIS (Course of Action Extra-Intelligence System) recommends both information relevant to an operational order and a course of action (COA), where COA is defined as a decision of what action to take given a specific situation. COAXIS performs semantic analysis of natural language of an operational order to bridge the world of human-oriented natural language communication of orders to machine ana ...

  8. Acoustic Counter Detection Tactical Decision Aid

    SBC: Kern Technology Group, LLC            Topic: N14AT016

    In order to maintain acoustic advantage, submarine crews need to assess acoustic vulnerability for historical and planned tracks and own ship noisy evolutions. A TDA or TDAs that produce acoustic advantage and vulnerability overlays for the geographic plot are essential to this. Our Phase I effort will develop a MATLAB-based TDA tool engine that when provided with the required inputs (own ship, en ...

  9. Robust, Microstructured, Ice-Phobic Anti-Icing Coating for Ship Structures

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N14AT013

    Naval vessels which regularly encounter sub-freezing environments experience superstructure ice accumulation which has negative effects on seaworthiness, deck safety, and ship system performance. In order to mitigate risks to mission success, this ice is currently removed with tools and de-icing solvents through a hazardous manual process with risk of damaging ship components. Ideally, these de-ic ...

    STTR Phase I 2014 Department of DefenseNavy

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N14AT013

    Through the proposed Navy STTR program, NanoSonic and Virginia Tech will create, qualify, and commercially transition a paradigm breaking HybridSil anti-icing and icephobic coating specifically engineered for extreme environmental durability, ease of application, and low-cost for U.S. Navy ship superstructures. The offered nanocomposite coating will leverage NanoSonics anti-icing and icephobic coa ...
