  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. Functional Engineering of a Photosynthetic Desalination Pump Circuit

    SBC: Phytodetectors, Inc.            Topic: G

    Phytodetectors will design and engineer a synthetic biological pump circuit to increase the volume of water produced via photosynthetic desalination. This project builds off previous technology designed by Phytodetectors: a mangrove-inspired ultra-filter that allows plants to purify salt water as well as secrete water with properties comparable to bottled water. The partnership seeks to demonstrat ...

  3. Hemp-based Fabric for Military Uniforms

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N21AT001

    Hemp fibers have been used in textile applications for thousands of years, but have been limited to textiles for home furnishing, rope, sacks, and other non-clothing textile applications. However, new treatment methods for hemp fibers to improve their hand, as well hemp’s general softening properties with time and wear, make these fibers attractive for use in performance clothing due to hemp’s ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. A photoacoustic spectral absorption instrument with integrated calibration system

    SBC: Handix Scientific Inc.            Topic: N21AT015

    Light absorption by aerosols is a key component to atmospheric extinction, and affects a number of processes relevant to the Navy. Satellite and other remotely sensed measurements can be strongly impacted by aerosols, obscuring targets and/or confounding interpretation of data products. Directed energy applications, including weapon and communication systems, are also impacted by absorption, which ...

  9. 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.

  10. 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 ...
