  1. 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 ...

  2. Detection Avoidance System for Submarines (DASS)

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N14AT016

    In this STTR, Daniel H. Wagner Associates, together with the University of Michigan (UM), will develop a Detection Avoidance System for Submarines (DASS). The proposed DASS is a set of software modules which solves the probabilistic passive sonar equation (PSE) using given environmental acoustic data, assesses submarine vulnerability based on intelligence about potential threat ASW assets, recomme ...

  3. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT018

    Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (peopleand/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, suchsystems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The acous ...

  4. Revolutionary Airlift Innovation

    SBC: Logistic Gliders Inc.            Topic: ST14B004

    We propose to mature LG-X glider technology by manufacturing full-scaled prototypes and characterizing them in land-based flight-testing by using commercial aircraft to drop the gliders. Validated components such as the landing parachute, folding wing mechanism, and autopilot control system will undergo integrated flight-testing. Logistic Gliders will provide a considerable cost share to support ...

  5. Nanocomposite Scandate Tungsten Powder for High Current Density and Long Life Thermionic Cathodes

    SBC: Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N15AT010

    Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc. (VPE), in collaboration with the University of California, Davis (UC Davis), proposes to develop and quantitatively verify a large scale production process for scandate tungsten nanocomposite powder to be used in high current density and long life cathodes during the Phase II effort. The plan for implementation of the large scale production process at VPE with powd ...

  7. Reliable Manufacturing of Scandia-doped Tungsten Powders for Thermionic Cathodes

    SBC: NGIMAT, LLC            Topic: N15AT010

    In this Phase II STTR effort, nGimat will partner with the University of Kentucky (UK) and 3M/Ceradyne to continue development of W-scandate cathode composite materials. Compared to conventional M-type cathodes, these composite scandate nanomaterials will enable longer cathode lifetime by lowering the required operating temperature. nGimat is an established and successful powder manufacturing comp ...

  9. High Fidelity Rotorcraft Towing Modeling and Simulation with Towed Magnetic Anomaly Detection System

    SBC: ADVANCED ROTORCRAFT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N15AT009

    Towing of a Magnetic Anomaly Detection (MAD) system is an important aspect of rotorcraftmaritime operation. The oscillatory rotorcraft combined with the long and flexible towingcable, the low mass ratio of the towed body to the towing aircraft, and the rotor wake effecton the towed body presents a challenge for integration of a modern MAD system withrotorcraft platform. The research objective is t ...

  10. Aircraft Carrier-based Precision Ship-Relative Navigation Guidance for Aircraft Landing under Emissions Control Conditions

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N15AT014

    SA Photonics has developed a concept for our Multiple Optical Beam Landing System (MOBLS) to provide autonomous landing of aircraft in RF denied environments. MOBLS utilizes multiple, redundant methods to determine the real-time location and bearing of the aircraft relative to the carrier-based landing strip. By having built in redundant modalities, MOBLS provides highly reliable landing informati ...
