  1. Tunable interferometer in SiN

    SBC: NEXUS PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: N21BT019

    We propose to develop tunable, high-power handling, low-loss phase-to-amplitude conversion photonic-integrated circuit (PIC) based device on heterogeneous SiN platform. The use of SiN for waveguide is the key to meet the stringent requirements, while additional heterogeneously integrated components are the key to enable tuning and locking of the phase-to-amplitude device. Nexus Photonics, realizi ...

  2. Analysis and Modeling of Erosion in Gas-Turbine Grade Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)

    SBC: ALPHASTAR TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: N19BT033

    A significant barrier to the insertion of ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials into advanced aircraft engines is their inherent degradation under erosion and post erosion. Our team will develop and demonstrate a physics-based model for erosion/post erosion of CMC’s at room and elevated temperatures (RT/ET). The ICME (Integrated Computational Material Engineering) Physics based Multi Scale Mo ...

  3. Passive Acoustic Cued Electro-Optical (ACE-O) Detect and Avoid For sUAS

    SBC: Scientific Applications & Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N21AT003

    Detecting and Avoiding (DAA) manned aircraft from small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) remains the unsolved problem for safe integration of sUAS into civil airspaces where Navy UAS must pay Due Regard to the laws of civil aviation. The difficulties are manifold. The solution requires both ultra-low SWaP sensors that track aircraft over long ranges, providing 360o field-of-regard (FOR), and often ...

  4. The use of modulated radiation pressure in target detection and classification

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N21AT010

    Both acoustic and electromagnetic waves exert forces of radiation on targets in their path of propagation. The radiation force (pressure) results from the change in wave momentum due to scattering by the target, averaged over one period of oscillation.  Modulated radiation pressure (MRP) utilizes the acoustic radiation force by using a double-sided suppressed carrier modulated (DSB-SCM) incident ...

  5. Integrated Reduced-Expansion Microchannel Cooling for SiC Power Modules

    SBC: MICRO COOLING CONCEPTS            Topic: N21AT012

    High power semiconductor devices suffer from difficulty in dissipating heat and thermal stresses. Silicon carbide-based power modules, in particular, have increasingly challenging heat loads despite their high efficiencies. In general terms, the module packaging methods used to improve cooling (moving metal heatsinks closer to the die) also increase thermal stresses, and the methods used to reduce ...

  6. Self-Healing Ship Systems

    SBC: OCEANIT LABORATORIES INC            Topic: N21AT014

    In this Phase I project, Oceanit will design a self-healing computing system for use on Navy vessels to keep a ship's primary functions operational in combat should the original computing system be damaged during an attack.

  7. Self-Healing Ship Systems

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: N21AT014

    As modern-day ships require more advanced applications and systems to run directly on the vessel, they require large amounts of computational resources to execute the complex software and algorithms.  While these next generation capabilities provide immense value, the downside is that now the compute servers and clusters required to support these capabilities become single points of failure. To c ...

  8. Photonic Integrated Analog-to-Information Receiver

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: N21AT004

    As complexity and performance requirements increases for RF sensors and systems for electronic warfare applications, the need for innovative and low-power compressive sensing (CS) technologies will become urgent in power constrained mobile platforms. There are several DOD and government application areas where this holds true and the high-performance CS technology to be developed in this program c ...

  9. Software developments for large-eddy simulations on GPU-accelerated systems

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N14AT005

    The objectives of the proposed work are twofold. The first goal is to develop and validate GPU-based static and moving versions of Cascade's large eddy simulation (LES) software CharLES that would fully leverage existing (and future) GPU-accelerated systems accessible by NAVAIR and other DoD agencies. These software developments will be performed by Cascade. For the current project, the targeted c ...

  10. Accelerated Burn-In Process for High Power Quantum Cascade Lasers to Reduce Total Cost of Ownership

    SBC: Adtech Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N20BT029

    Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) are one of the most versatile sources of radiation in the mid-infrared range and have found applications in a variety of fields. Despite their widespread adoption, one of the main hurdles holding QCLs back from large volume manufacturing is the large cost of ownership. While QCLs, like most semiconductor devices based on III-V compounds, can leverage the economies of ...
