  1. Advanced, High-Performance, Low-Noise Propeller Designs for Small UxS

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N20AT006

    Improved propeller designs for Small Unmanned Aerial Systems are needed to improve performance and reduce acoustic emissions. Traditional propeller design methods don’t take advantage of advances in coupled fluid, structure and acoustics computational design methods nor advances in high strength, high modulus materials to extend performance of propellers and reduce noise emissions. In the propos ...

  3. Auto-Docking Autonomous Burial Vehicle (AD-ABV)

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N11AT017

    Subsequent Phase II Proposal, extension of Phase II contract N00039-12-C-0082. This contract involves the development of an underwater vehicle that can reliably and autonomously interconnect power and data cables to undersea nodes after they have been deployed. The Auto-Docking Autonomous Burial Vehicle (AD-ABV) is a cable-connecting adaptation of Makai’s proven ABV, which has been successfully ...

  4. Cubic Boron Nitride Claddings for Friction Stir Tooling

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: N18AT026

    Friction stir welding (FSW) is an attractive joining method where high strength low porosity welds can be attained. However, the high temperatures and forces required for welding high strength materials like steel require the use of exotic tools. Cubic boron nitride (cBN)-based tools offer attractive tool wear characteristics in steels, but are very costly. Conversely, refractory metal alloys are ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Environmental Temperature Sensing Tow Cable

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N18AT017

    The U.S. Navy currently utilizes a number of towed systems from surface ship and submarines for sensing and communication applications. In a number of these cases, a tow cable extends either down from a surface ship or up from a submarine through the upper part of the water column where seawater temperature can be both highly variable vs. depth and dynamic in time and geographic location. Having a ...

  8. 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 ...
