  1. EA Seat Optimization Platform: Biofidelic tool for model-informed EA device design

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N20AT001

    Ground vehicle underbody blast events pose a significant threat to warfighters; therefore, there is a need to develop energy attenuating (EA) seats to mitigate these injuries. Many of the current technologies were primarily designed for the 50th percentile male. To address this critical need, Luna Innovations will investigate how anthropometric variability and changes in posture affect injury, dev ...

  3. Sociolinguistic Information Filtering Tool (SIFT)

    SBC: Quantitative Scientific Solutions, LLC            Topic: N20AT017

    The Internet and social media are littered with bots, cyborgs, trolls, spam, deepfakes, shallowfakes, misinformation, disinformation, and other manifestations of purposefully manipulative content. Recent world events have highlighted the tangible and worrying impact of these phenomena on core social and democratic functioning. There is mounting evidence that bot and bot-assisted accounts, acting i ...

  4. Intelligent Additive Manufacturing- Metals

    SBC: R3 Digital Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N20AT018

    The Navy desires an Intelligent Additive Manufacturing (IAM) system for metal Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) that can incorporate AI to provide real-time adaptive monitoring and control of the LPBF process and produce defect-free parts while maintaining or reducing part build times. To provide this, our team will develop Open-IAM.  The concept will consist of a controllable open architecture LPBF ...

  5. Timing and Harmonic AI-based Waveform Error Detection (THAWED)

    SBC: Expedition Technology, Inc.            Topic: N20AT025

    The physics generating timing spurs in a high-speed, low-bit depth analog-to-digital converter will be modeled in a machine learning framework to enable both the prediction of spurs and adaptive removal using an enhancement neural network. The algorithms will be developed in software and optimized for low-latency operation in a digital (FPGA or similar) framework. High-speed implementation of ...

  7. Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste Heat

    SBC: Mantel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19AT013

    The U.S. Navy seeks methods to improve the fuel economy of marine diesel engines through utilization of waste heat. Low temperature engine jacket water, lubrication oil, and aftercooler air are largely untapped streams of thermal energy on these ships, but their utilization circumvents many operation challenges associated with exhaust gases. For example, variable and high exhaust gas temperatures ...

  10. Unmanned Aerial System with Infinite Energy Scavenging

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N19AT019

    The objective of this Navy Phase II STTR program is to design, develop and manufacture energy scavenging modules for “small unit power” architecture. The energy scavenging modules (ESMs) developed in this program will be able to capture the magnetic fields surrounding electrical power lines and electrical equipment and convert their energy into electricity. The ESMs will be designed to have th ...
