  1. Radio Frequency (RF) Filter Tuning Element

    SBC: INDIANA MICROELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: AF18AT015

    The proposed Phase II effort focuses on enhancing the design, development and analysis of a high voltage BST based varactors for tunable filter applications. High voltage BST varactors will enable wide tuning range filters with high quality factors and increased power handling and linearity. Advanced filter design techniques will also be leveraged to increase the effective quality factor of the fi ...

  2. Situational Awareness for Mission Critical Ship Systems

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: N18AT009

    With the advent of the Navy’s newest classes of all-electric vessels, the interdependence and functional correlation of the power plant with other mission-critical ship systems such as integrated cooling, weapons, navigation, air surveillance, and IT control network systems, maintaining optimal oversight and control of power distribution aboard ship becomes increasingly challenging. As the opera ...

  3. Brain-Based Prediction of Influence Message Effectiveness (BB-PRIME)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A12AT009

    Behavior change is a common objective across the Defense community. Recent studies suggest that neuroimaging can improve our ability to predict what messages are effective in changing behavior in individuals and at scale (Falk & Scholz, 2018). However, current neuroscience results have not established definitive causal relationships between specific types of messages and behavior change. In BB-PRI ...

  4. Conjugate heat transfer for LES of gas turbine engines

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19BT027

    Current design tools for gas turbine engines invoke a variety of simplifying assumptions to estimate heat transfer to solid/metal engine components (e.g., isothermal boundary conditions). These approximations are often not valid, result in inaccurate predictions of heat transfer, and ultimately compromise the thermal integrity of propulsion and power systems. Wall-modeled large eddy simulation (WM ...

  5. Large Eddy Simulation (LES) Flow Solver Suitable for Modeling Conjugate Heat Transfer

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19BT027

    Accurate prediction heat transfer in gas turbine components subject to cooling requires high fidelity modeling of heat transfer in the presence of high Reynolds number turbulent flow. The cooling internal to the blades results in sustained temperature gradients within the structural parts, from low temperature in the interior of the structure to increasingly higher temperature closer to the surfac ...

  6. Joint User-centered Planning artificial Intelligence Tools for Effective mission Reasoning (JUPITER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N19BT029

    Effective mission planning is critical for military strategy and execution. This process is complex as human operators must consider many variables (e.g., resource limitations, threats, risks) when formulating a plan to accomplish mission goals. Although powerful tools, such as the Navy’s Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS), provide advanced functionality, mission planning remains a hybrid acti ...

  7. AI-Driven, Secure Navy Mission Planning via Deep Reinforcement Learning and Attribute-Based Multi-Level Security

    SBC: EH GROUP            Topic: N19BT029

    Current mission planning systems allow strike planners and operations centers to perform time-sensitive strike planning, execution monitoring, and validate mission effects using XML-based tools that visualize time critical attack plan and track plan status vs. execution. In this proposed STTR Phase I design for the Next Generation Navy Mission Planning (NGNMPS) system, we will identify expanded op ...

  8. Data Science Techniques for Various Mission Planning Processes and Performance Validation

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N19BT029

    Mission and planning is a difficult and time-consuming process that places a heavy burden on manpower and critical thinking and is performed under significant pressure. Existing and emerging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques are well-suited to assisting humans with these challenges. While the promise of AI/ML is great, there are significant obstacles to operationali ...

  9. Orientation-Patterned Semiconductor Crystals with Low Insertion Loss and High Resistance to Laser Damage

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF18AT016

    The Air Force needs tunable laser systems with high average power in the mid-infrared region of the spectrum for military applications including defense against heat-seeking missiles. Currently-fielded laser systems, based on nonlinear frequency conversion in periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN), have limited optical power at wavelengths between 4 m and 5 m because of intrinsi ...

  10. Robust, Low Permeability, Water-Filled Microcapsules

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N19BT030

    Triton Systems proposes to develop a process to synthesize water filled microcapsules that are able to contain the water in the microcapsules for extended (years) periods of time. We will develop accelerated aging tests to measure the water loss over the equivalent of 20 years of more. We will also measure the mechanical strength of the microcapsules before and during exposure to jet fuel, and whe ...
