  1. Stable High Bandwidth AO Control with physical DM constraints

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT008

    Adaptive optics (AO) can compensate for the aberrating effects of atmospheric turbulence which degrade the performance of high energy laser (HEL) weapon systems and, as such, is an enabling technology for effective deployment of HEL weapon systems. A key component in an HEL AO system is the deformable mirror (DM). However, mechanical constraints in currently available DMs limits AO system performa ...

  2. Detection Rate Improvements Through Understanding and Modeling Ocean Variability--- Phase II-- MP-18-103

    SBC: METRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: N18AT002

    Transmission loss (TL) is a key input to the sonar equation for predicting the ability of an active sonar system to detect and track a target of interest. The proposed technical effort centers on developing physics-based models to interpret and predict TL variability. The concept under development consists of a model that consumes modeled and in situ oceanographic information, estimates the likeli ...

  3. Multi-Modal Sensing of Sensitization and Stress Corrosion Cracking Susceptibility in AA5xxx Alloys

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N18AT010

    In order to travel faster, travel longer, and carry larger payloads, new Navy ships are being designed with light weight alloys and composite materials. High magnesium AA5xxx series alloys provide a high strength to weight ratio and excellent corrosion resistance, but suffer from sensitization as anodic ß precipitates (Al¬3Mg2) are form along grain boundaries due to a combination of elevated tem ...

  4. Laser Surface Modification and Galvanic Protection of 5XXX

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N18AT016

    Exfoliation corrosion of 5XXX series aluminum alloy is an issue related to sensitization of the aluminum substrate wherein internal stresses drive delamination of highly elongated outer layers due to preferential corrosion paths and volumetric expansion. The Navy is interested in preventing this corrosion to decrease lifetime costs on Littoral Combat Ships, Ship-to-Shore Connector vessels, and Tic ...

  5. Systematic Fatigue Test Spectrum Editing Using Wavelet Transformations

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N18BT029

    Our Phase I effort showed that spectrum compression could be successfully achieved via Wavelet Transform (WT) based Fatigue Spectrum Editing (FSE) techniques for uniaxial HCF spectra cases. For example, 85% reduction in spectrum length can be achieved in the case of the original FELIX spectrum. However, the extension of the same FSE technique to multi-axial HCF cases showed less desirable results ...

  6. Predictive Graph Convolutional Networks

    SBC: METRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: N19AT017

    Increased availability of graph-structured military data and recent technical advances in neural network design and training methods has led to an opportunity to advance the state of the art while simultaneously establishing and improving the ability:(1) to monitor a platform or force, (2) to predict capabilities and limitations of the force, and (3) to suggest opportunities and vulnerabilities. ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Local Stochastic Prediction for UUV/USV Environmental Awareness

    SBC: Applied Ocean Sciences, LLC            Topic: N19AT022

    This project delivers a compact system to assess and reduce local uncertainties that impact routing and sensor operation decisions while tracking the evolution of the maritime environment around unmanned platforms at sea (UUV/USV). The system runs both at control centers and on-board the UUV/USV’s, subject to different network bandwidth and computing environments Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) co ...

  9. 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. Design of Easy-To-Use Structural Alloy Feedstocks for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Elementum 3D, Inc.            Topic: A18BT003

    There is a military and industry need for easy-to-use, versatile alloys for metals additive manufacturing (3D printing) that print consistently regardless of the specific process or machine and without requiring in-depth metallurgical or manufacturing knowledge. Such capability is critical for soldiers to be able to make needed items on demand in the theater of war. In addition, the alloy will be ...
