  1. Wide-Area Laser Additive Manufacturing in Metals with Adaptive Beam Shaping (WALAM-ABS)

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: N17AT030

    Optonicus proposes development of the Wide-Area Laser Additive Manufacturing in Metals with Adaptive Beam Shaping (WALAM-ABS) laser additive manufacturing (LAM) system. The WALAM-ABS metal additive manufacturing system will solve long-standing drawbacks imposed by current single-point selective laser melting LAM technology through the use of wide-area processing based on proprietary multi-beam fib ...

  2. Quantifying Uncertainty in the Mechanical Performance of Additively Manufactured Parts Due to Material and Process Variation

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N16AT004

    Additive manufacturing is an extremely customizable process; however, variations in the chosen build parameters can lead to drastic differences in part performance. The performance variation due to process parameters is still not well understood, and propagating all uncertainties from the various sources has been a challenge. Sources of AM parts’ performance variability include uncertainties in ...

  3. Power and Propulsion System Optimization

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: N18AT012

    Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) are currently limited in the type of missions they can perform. Limited available power limits which sensors can be run or for how long, and also limits the duration and range of the mission. More efficient propulsion systems would increase the power available to the UUV payload. Improved power distribution systems and control systems would also increase the ava ...

  4. Compact Thermal Management System for Laser Systems

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: N18AT001

    The use of laser technologies and high-power electronics is rapidly being incorporated into tactical platforms for imaging, target designation, and range finding. Electronic equipment including lasers demand power from a tactical aircraft and produce large amounts of thermal energy as a waste product. Current thermal management technologies will not be sufficient for future aircraft as thermal man ...

  5. Advanced Ship-handling Simulators

    SBC: D'Angelo Technologies, LLC            Topic: N18AT014

    There is a need to create an automated, adaptive, real time coaching module that can integrate the Conning Officer Virtual Environment (COVE) along with the associated Intelligent Tutor System (COVE-ITS) and the Conning-Officer Ship Handling Assessment (COSA) together. By automating the evaluation process, Surface Warfare Officers (SWOs) will have the opportunity to use the COVE simulations more f ...

  6. Laser Additive Manufacturing of Seven Thousand Series Aluminum Aircraft Components (LAM-STAAC)

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: N18AT005

    Alloys of aluminum in the 7000 series are known to have good weight, strength, and fatigue properties and are commonly used in Naval aircraft components. Recent manufacturing trends are increasingly focused on additive manufacturing (AM) methods as a way to reduce lead time, cost, and to improve part performance. Current additive manufacturing techniques are unable to fabricate parts in 7000 serie ...

  7. Control & Optimization of Multiple Illumination Characteristics (COMIC) of A Pulsed Fiber Array Laser System For Active Imaging Through Fog

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: N18AT021

    Degraded weather conditions particularly, dense maritime fog, reduces the US Fleet EO/IR systems ability to maintain situational awareness and detect/identify and track targets of interest. It is the Navys goal to develop an active EO/IR imaging system that jointly optimizes illumination source properties and implements advanced image processing to improve performance and operational range of curr ...

  8. High Throughput Static and Dynamic Testing of AM Materials for Uncertainty Quantification and Qualification

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N18AT028

    Qualification of additively manufactured parts is hampered by the inherent uncetainty in properties due to heterogeneity in processing, microstructure, and defects. The proposed effort combines high-throughput testing of static and dynamic properties using tailored sample geometry, fixture design, and load application method with microstructure quantification and analysis. This system will drastic ...
