  1. Active Imaging through Fog

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N18AT021

    Active imaging systems are used to for imaging in degraded visual environments like that found in marine fog and other environments with a high level of attenuation and scattering from obscurants like fog, rain, smoke, and dust.These systems are still limited in range and resolution. SA Photonics is taking advantage of multiple image enhancement techniques, like wavelength tunability, pulse contro ...

  2. Additive Manufacturing for Microwave Vacuum Electron Device Cost Reduction

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: N16AT010

    The Department of the Navy has a need for the development of an additive manufacturing (AM) process for key vacuum electronic device components to meet on-demand, flexible, and affordable manufacturing requirements. The developed manufacturing method has a potential to reduce cost of vacuum electronics by as much as 70% as well as simplify and hence expedite production process of these devices by ...

  3. Air Cycle Machine Low Friction, Medium Temperature, Foil Bearing Coating

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: N16AT005

    The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of using an innovative, durable, low friction, and non-toxic solid lubricant coating for foil air bearings for air cycle machines (ACM). Acrees coating provides superior wear characteristics at all temperatures and provides a substantial improvement over polyimide type coatings that are currently used on ACMs. The coating consists of tw ...

  5. An Integrated Materials Informatics/Sequential Learning Framework to Predict the Effects of Defects in Metals Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Citrine Informatics, Inc.            Topic: N18AT013

    In this project, Citrine Informatics and the ADAPT Center at the Colorado School of Mines propose to build an informatics-driven system to understand the effects of defects in additive manufactured parts. The entire history of each sample will be captured on this system; from specific printing parameters and details of precursor materials through to part characterizations and performance measureme ...

  6. Concrete Materials Characterization (COMAC)

    SBC: Luminit LLC            Topic: N18AT006

    To meet the U.S. Navy, specifically PMA-201, need for nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of concrete, including evaluating its strength, material properties, and damage localization, Luminit, LLC, and Southern Illinois University (SIU) propose to develop a novel Concrete Materials Characterization (COMAC) system, combining several methods of concrete characterization into a single sensor/software com ...

  7. Cubic Boron Nitride Claddings for Friction Stir Tooling

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: N18AT026

    Friction stir welding (FSW) is an attractive joining method where high strength low porosity welds can be attained. However, the high temperatures and forces required for welding high strength materials like steel require the use of exotic tools. Cubic boron nitride (cBN)-based tools offer attractive tool wear characteristics in steels, but are very costly. Conversely, refractory metal alloys are ...

  8. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT018

    Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (people and/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, such systems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The aco ...

  9. Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitions

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A001

    This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...

  10. Embedded Space Analytics

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: N16AT020

    Navy needs a real-time graph embedding tool for analyzing huge graphs (millions of nodes and billions of edges) from diverse sources. However, current approaches cannot provide dynamic and scalable graph analytics to show the military value of tactical data. In this project, InfoBeyond advocates EStreaming (Embedding & Streaming) for scalable and efficient graph streaming. EStreaming promotes big ...
