  1. Aircraft Carrier-based Precision Ship-Relative Navigation Guidance for Aircraft Landing under Emissions Control Conditions

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N15AT014

    This proposal describes an all optical fixed wing landing system for a aircraft carrier capable of flying an aircraft all the way to landing in a RF denied environment. The precision, reliability and accuracy of this system will allow control the aircraft without the help from the pilot all the way to touch down. It will work seamlessly with UAVs and manned aircraft that have been retrofitted with ...

  2. Demonstration of a Local Carrier-Based Precision Approach and Landing System (LC-PALS)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N14AT009

    Toyon Research Corporation, together with the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) propose to demonstrate a GPS-denied Local Carrier-based Precision Approach and Landing System (LC-PALS) that enables 3-D position, navigation and time (PNT) for platforms within range of an aircraft carrier equipped with one or more ADEPT-compliant beacons. Unlike the Global Positioning System (GPS), which ...

  4. Grid-Spacing-Independent and Discretization-Order-Independent Simulation for Naval Single-Phase and Two-Phase Flow Applications

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N15AT002

    Turbulent shear flows in naval applications are characterized by vastly different lengths and time scales associated with rotor tip vortices and the vortical structures shed from the ship, and additional phase from water drops and water vapor. To tackle the modeling challenges, we propose a novel methodology that combines a vorticity preserving method and a new approach to LES turbulence modeling ...

  5. High Fidelity Rotorcraft Towing Modeling and Simulation with Towed Magnetic Anomaly Detection System

    SBC: ADVANCED ROTORCRAFT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N15AT009

    Towing of a Magnetic Anomaly Detection (MAD) system is an important aspect of rotorcraft maritime operation in support of Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW). The vibratory rotary wing platform combined with the long and flexible towing cable, the low mass ratio of the towed body to the total mass (the sum of the tow body and the towing aircraft), and the rotor downwash impingement on the towed body duri ...

  6. Improved Turbulence Modelling Across Disparate Length Scales for Naval Computational Fluid Dynamics Applications

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: N15AT002

    Computational Sciences LLC will collaborate with the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) to develop and validate a stand-alone computational module that naturally accounts for the effects of turbulence. Such fluctuations and transitions may be associated with compressible flows and boundary layer interactions. The module will be designed for implementation in to existing legacy codes for use in ...

  7. Innovative Physics-based Modeling Tool for Application to Passive Radio Frequency Identification System on Rotorcraft

    SBC: MATHEMATICAL SYSTEMS & SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: N15AT005

    We propose development of a software capability which, based on use of MathSysaccurate and efficient exact-physics computational electromagnetics (CEM) solvers, will enable modeling and optimization of the properties of on-platform pRFID tag/reader antenna systems. Passive Radio Frequency Identification devices (pRFID) mounted on complex rotorcrafts pose challenging modeling problems: since pRFID ...

  8. In Situ Inspection of Additive Manufactured Metallic Parts Using Laser Ultrasonics

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N15AT008

    Additive manufacturing (AM) is a very promising technique for rapid, low-cost production of aircraft parts directly from a CAD file. AM is especially appealing for complex parts that would be costly or impossible to fabricate by machining or casting. At the current time there are no reliable, cost-effective techniques to qualify the finished parts. Several government studies have noted this gap an ...

  9. In situ NDI and correction of the AM process with laser SAW and heterodyne detection

    SBC: POLARONYX INC            Topic: N15AT008

    This Navy STTR Phase I proposal presents an unprecedented NDI tool to support laser additive manufacturing of metal parts by using fiber laser SAW and heterodyne detection. It is the enabling technology for real time characterize the AM parts in terms of temperature, cooling rate, grain structure, and defects. A proof of concept demonstration will be carried out at the end of Phase 1.Prototypes wi ...
