  1. Additive Manufacturing for Microwave Vacuum Electron Device Cost Reduction

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: N16AT010

    The Department of the Navy has a need for the development of an additive manufacturing (AM) process for key vacuum electronic device components to meet on-demand, flexible, and affordable manufacturing requirements. The developed manufacturing method has a potential to reduce cost of vacuum electronics by as much as 70% as well as simplify and hence expedite production process of these devices by ...

  2. Aerial Aquatic Ordnance Removal Vehicle (AEQUOR-V)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N16AT025

    With Project AEQUOR-V Aurora, in partnership with Purdue University, proposes to complete the conceptual design of a hybrid unmanned air/underwater vehicle (HUA/UV) capable of transitioning repeatedly between aerial and underwater operations in a single mission, operating in water depths up to 40 ft, and carrying a significant payload. To accomplish this goal, Aurora will build on design experienc ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Air Cycle Machine Low Friction, Medium Temperature, Foil Bearing Coating

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: N16AT005

    The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of using an innovative, durable, low friction, and non-toxic solid lubricant coating for foil air bearings for air cycle machines (ACM). Acrees coating provides superior wear characteristics at all temperatures and provides a substantial improvement over polyimide type coatings that are currently used on ACMs. The coating consists of tw ...

  5. A Rapid Optical Approach to Quantitative Composite Bond Quality Assessment

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N13AT011

    Widely used composite materials reduce aircraft weight and cost, improve structural performance, and boost fuel efficiency. However, composites are susceptible to adhesive bond line quality issues, both in initial fabrication and in service related bonding failures. Detection of weakened bonds requires an easy diagnostic approach to routinely monitor composite aircraft health. Our proposed solutio ...

  6. Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Equipped for Air and Sea Locomotion

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N16AT025

    The Navy seeks to develop a hybrid air/underwater autonomous vehicle that can rapidly inspect and/or engage submerged objects spread over great distances by flying through the air between sequential underwater operations. Compared to a standard AUV, the flight capability will offer substantial operational advantage by reducing mission time. For comparison, an AUV like the Remus-100 has a maximum s ...

  7. Bonded Joint Analysis Method

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N12AT004

    During Phase I and Phase II, M4 Engineering, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories have created a unique bonded joint analysis methodology and associated software. During Phase II.5, the developed techniques will be further enhanced and a fully functional commercial analysis code (SIMULIA/Abaqus) plug-in will be created. The software plug-in will make the advanced technology accessible to all leve ...

  8. Composable Hybrid Approach to Recognizing bots and their Influence in Social Media Analysis (CHARISMA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N15AT020

    Social media is transforming the way people around the world share messages, receive information, and come together to act. Unlike most traditional media, social media is built on a technical foundation that enables messages to spread quickly and widely, can be used to disguise the true source of messages, and can be used to produce automated messages that may have influential and manipulative eff ...

  10. Crowdsourced Acquisition of Models of Learning Transfer Strategies (CRAM-LESS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N15AT013

    The current generation of US students needs a stronger base in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) principles, an understanding of how these principles relate to the real world, and the ability to transfer these principles to tomorrows science and engineering challenges. The Navys use of science and technology is increasing, and a lack of STEM-ready applicants could lead to a ...
