  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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. A High-Speed Digital Holocamera for the 3-D Analysis of Flow Interaction with High Speed Flows

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: N20AT020

    In hypersonic flight, airborne particles such as water or ice can penetrate and alter the bow shock and flow field, enhance erosion mechanisms and alter aerodynamics. Particles break up as they pass through the shock wave, impact the surface, erode and increase surface roughness, increase turbulence and heat transfer, and augment heating that can destroy heat shields prematurely. Many tests and th ...

  6. 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 ...
