  1. 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 ...

  2. PARTEL: Periscope video Analysis using Reinforcement and TransfEr Learning

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: N20AT007

    We propose a suite of video processing algorithms utilizing the machine learning (ML) techniques of artificial intelligence (AI) reinforcement learning, deep learning, and transfer learning to process submarine imagery obtained by means of periscope cameras. Machine learning (ML) can help in addressing the challenge of human failure of assessing the data of periscope imagery. Though pre-tuned blac ...

  4. Perovskite Solar Cells

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N16AT006

    The goal of the proposed research is to develop light-weight, flexible, high efficiency solar cells made from perovskite halide light-harvesting materials for use on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), for use in conjunction with an energy storage system. Solar cells have historically been heavy, costly, and inflexible. In this research, low-cost manufacturing methods will be used to make high effici ...

  5. Bonded Joint Analysis Method

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N12AT004

    During Phase I and Phase II, M4 Engineering, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories have created a unique bonded joint analysis methodology and associated software. During Phase II.5, the developed techniques will be further enhanced and a fully functional commercial analysis code (SIMULIA/Abaqus) plug-in will be created. The software plug-in will make the advanced technology accessible to all leve ...

  6. Detecting Substandard, Nonconforming, Improperly Processed and Counterfeit Materiel

    SBC: Ocean Bay Information and Systems Management, LLC            Topic: DLA15C001

    "Micro-calorimetry is a Nondestructive Test (NDT) capable of detecting heat characteristics that could identify improperly processed, counterfeit, substandard, nonconforming or fake raw material prior to materials introduction into end-product production cycles. Current calorimetric technology is an extremely sensitive, expensive and time consuming process, utilizing an adiabatic or semi-adiabat ...

  7. Frequency and Phase Locking of Magnetrons Using Varactor Diodes

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: N20AT015

    Magnetrons are compact, inexpensive, and highly efficient sources of RF power used in many industrial and commercial applications. For most of these applications, the requirement is for RF power without regard to precise frequency or phase control, and noise riding on the RF signal is not important. For many accelerator, defense, and communications applications, however, these characteristics prev ...

  8. High Hesitivity Magnetic Materials for Magnetic Toroid and Flat Dipole Antennas

    SBC: Winchester Technologies, LLC            Topic: N16AT001

    Novel approaches are needed to improve the performance and reduce the size, number and signature of antennas with significantly enhanced efficiency in HF-UHF. It has been shown recently hesitivity, which is able to characterize the performance of the material and categorize the radiation efficiency of magnetodielectric wire antennas; the higher the hesitivity, the higher the attainable antenna eff ...

  9. System to Evaluate and Assess Holistic Aircrew Workload (SEAHAWK)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N16AT002

    The Navy is continually developing new technologies to improve warfighting effectiveness. These technologies risk overloading Aircrews physical and cognitive capacities, thereby degrading performance. To mitigate that risk, the Navy needs a system to assess Aircrews physical and cognitive workloads unobtrusively and objectively. Such a system must (1) perform real-time data collection in a robust ...

  10. 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 ...
