  1. Complete Lithium Ion Batteries Produced by Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: AKITA INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N18AT008

    Demand for portable power continues to expand, and new portable devices require increased variability in form factor. Furthermore, expired batteries may not be easily replaceable due to the lack of standard geometries. New manufacturing technologies are necessary to respond to each of the challenges. Additive manufacturing (AM) is a promising approach that is well known for its ability to quickly ...

  2. Structurally efficient CMC-PMC air frames

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N18AT024

    The Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) Team consisting of PSI, Draper Laboratories (Draper), and an airframe integrator are proposing a tunable hybrid composite structure capable of increasing the thermal operating performance by 500 C over conventional polymer matrix composites (PMCs). Our multifunctional composite approach combines PSIs low cost quasi-isotropic Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) system, a ...

  4. 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 cognitive capacities, degrading performance. To mitigate that risk, the Navy needs a system to assess Aircrews physical and cognitive workloads unobtrusively and objectively. To meet these requirements, Charles River Analytics conducted a Phase I effort to design a ...

  5. Smart Baseplate for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DLA18A001

    Additive manufacturing (AM) has rapidly evolved into a valuable technique for making parts which, at times, cannot be fabricated through conventional machining methods.One challenge in the area of AM is the lack of real-time feedback on the fabrication process and the quality of the part being made.This is especially critical given the relatively long periods of time that complex parts can require ...

  6. Prediction of the Full-Scale Cook-off Response Based on Small-Scale Testing

    SBC: BLAZETECH CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT011

    Reducing the violence of Slow Cook-Off (SCO) and Fast Cook-Off (FCO) to acceptable levels is of great interest to the Insensitive Munitions development. For example, the MIL-STD-2105C SCO test for Insensitive Munitions (IM) compliance requires a slow heating rate (3.3°C/hr) until reaction occurs whereby the ensuing reaction is characterized by degree of violence. A Type V (burn) reaction or bette ...

  7. Environmental Temperature Sensing Tow Cable

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N18AT017

    The U.S. Navy currently utilizes a number of towed systems from surface ship and submarines for sensing and communication applications. In a number of these cases, a tow cable extends either down from a surface ship or up from a submarine through the upper part of the water column where seawater temperature can be both highly variable vs. depth and dynamic in time and geographic location. Having a ...

  8. Perovskite Solar Cells

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N16AT006

    To provide power for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), we propose developing solar cells made using perovskite halide solar absorbers, such as those based upon methylammonium lead iodide (CH3NH3PbI3). Our phase I efforts produced flexible solar cells that exhibited power conversion efficiencies (PCE) of 8.1%, a landmark achievement. The proposed research details how to achieve 20% power conversion ...

  9. Novel Cooling System for Laser Enclosure

    SBC: Photonwares Corporation            Topic: N18AT001

    We propose to utilize a laser 3D printing manufacturing technique to realize an ultra high efficiency micro-channel laser head cooling system with high thermal load capacity in a small volume package. The new approach incorporates key technical innovations that drastically increase the forced water flow interaction surface area and the metal thermal conductivity. The approach enables conformal geo ...

  10. Detection Rate Improvements Through Understanding and Modeling Ocean Variability-- 18-004

    SBC: METRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: N18AT002

    The transmission loss (TL) observed by sonar operators can differ significantly from that predicted by Navy models. The long-term objective of the proposed work is to understand why these differences occur and improve the target detection predictive capability of the models. Our approach in Phase I is to analyze bistatic sonar data collected on Navy assets. We will examine both cases with model/da ...
