  1. Optimization of Fatigue Test Signal Compression Using The Wavelet Transform

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N18BT029

    ATA Engineering has developed a wavelet-based damage squeezing methodology for generating optimally compressed fatigue test signals that produce an equivalent amount of fatigue damage in a predictably reduced amount of time compared to the baseline (uncompressed) signals. Fatigue-critical signal characteristics (e.g., magnitude, phase, frequency, and sequencing relationships) are identified in the ...

  2. Comprehensive Surf Zone Modeling Tool

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N19AT010

    The objective of this project is to advance the capabilities of the Coastal Battlefield Reconnaissance and Analysis (COBRA) system by creating a Surf Zone Modelling Tool (SZT) that can create realistic synthetic imagery of the surf zone (SZ). Through the use of this synthetic imagery the COBRA Program will be enabled to inform concept of operations (CONOPS) in unfamiliar environments as well as mo ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Data Analytics and Machine Learning Toolkit to Accelerate Materials Design and Processing Development

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N19AT020

    The US Navy has identified refractory high entropy alloys (RHEAs) and metal additive manufacturing (AM) as enabling technologies to meet performance and sustainability targets for shipboard and aircraft systems. Key challenges include designing RHEAs and optimizing metal AM to achieve desired material properties for Navy propulsion applications. Developing materials and processes via traditional e ...

  5. Triton™: Active Imaging through Fog

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N18AT021

    Active imaging systems are used in degraded visual environments, like those found in marine fog and other areas with a high level of attenuation and scattering from obscurants like rain, smoke and dust. These systems are still limited in range and resolution. SA Photonics is taking advantage of new eyesafe, hybrid fiber-bulk laser technology capable of high pulse energy at high repetition rate to ...

  6. Cognitive Adaptation and Mission Optimization (CAMO) for Autonomous Teams of UAS Platforms

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: N17BT035

    The Navy needs cognitive control capabilities that enable an autonomous robotic team comprised of a ground control station node and a team of UAS platforms to operate independently (or with minimal human oversight) while carrying out complex missions. A cognitive control capability needs to be developed that concurrently optimizes the balance of mission risk / performance with respect to the Navy ...

  7. Vector Magnetometer based on Dispersive Cavity Readout of Nitrogen Vacancies in Diamond

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N19AT006

    Vescent Photonics, LLC, (Vescent) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory (MIT-LL) propose to develop a low-noise, field-deployable vector magnetometer based on the dispersive cavity readout (DCR) of nitrogen vacancy (NV) diamond.  Solid-state quantum systems based on NV-diamond centers have many intrinsic properties that make them well-suited as stable, sensitive platfor ...

  8. Protocol Feature Identification and Removal

    SBC: P&J ROBINSON CORP            Topic: N18AT018

    Protocols used for communication suffer bloat from a variety of sources, such as support for legacy features or rarely used (and unnecessary) functionality. Traditionally, the Navy subscribes to a blanket adoption of a standard protocol "as is". Unnecessary features are active and can be accessed by both internal and external systems creating security vulnerabilities. PJR Corporation's (PJR's) Pha ...

  9. Reliable Manufacturing of Scandia-doped Tungsten Powders for Thermionic Cathodes

    SBC: NGIMAT, LLC            Topic: N15AT010

    In this Phase II STTR effort, nGimat will partner with the University of Kentucky (UK) and 3M/Ceradyne to continue development of W-scandate cathode composite materials. Compared to conventional M-type cathodes, these composite scandate nanomaterials will enable longer cathode lifetime by lowering the required operating temperature. nGimat is an established and successful powder manufacturing comp ...

  10. Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste Heat

    SBC: Mantel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19AT013

    The U.S. Navy seeks methods to improve the fuel economy of marine diesel engines through utilization of waste heat. Low temperature engine jacket water, lubrication oil, and aftercooler air are largely untapped streams of thermal energy on these ships, but their utilization circumvents many operation challenges associated with exhaust gases. For example, variable and high exhaust gas temperatures ...
