  1. Point of care blood coagulopathy diagnostics

    SBC: Coalesenz Inc.            Topic: DHA19A001

    We have developed a novel low-cost, multi-functional blood coagulation sensor that can measure a patient’s coagulation status within less than 10 minutes using a 25mL drop of blood. This device addresses the critical unmet need to identify and manage patients with an elevated risk of life-threatening bleeding or thrombosis, the major causes of in-hospital preventable death. In addition, our inno ...

  2. High Energy Resolution Mixed-Halide Elpasolite Scintillators for Next Generation RIID

    SBC: CapeSym, Inc            Topic: DTRA18B003

    The ability to discriminate between threatening and benign sources depends on the sensitivity, accuracy, and identification speed of the detection equipment. High energy resolution of the radionuclide sensor is necessary to decrease the likelihood of false identification. However, few scintillators achieve better than 3% energy resolution at 662 keV, and none exceed 2.5%. The goal of this effort i ...

  3. Mixed Elpasolite Scintillators

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA18B003

    The goal of this program is to develop the mixed elpasolite scintillators in order to achieve an energy resolution of  (≤ 2.5% (approaching 2%) at 662 keV for crystal sizes of up to 2 inch by 2 inch.  In this project we will investigate compositional changes in selected mixed-elpasolite(s) in order to achieve very high energy resolution.  By incorporating 6Li, neutron detection will also be t ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Detection Rate Improvements Through Understanding and Modeling Ocean Variability

    SBC: Ocean Acoustical Services and Instrumentation Systems, Inc.            Topic: N18AT002

    The littoral environment is especially demanding on tactical sonar systems, in large part because the spatial and temporal variability imposes sonar system operating conditions of a nature and with a scale heretofore not encountered in the open oceans. Recent Office of Naval Research (ONR) sponsored basic research as well as fleet exercises have shown that littoral environments tactically importan ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Scalable Manufacturing of Composite Components using Nanostructured Heaters

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: N18BT031

    Manufacturing of structural composites traditionally employs autoclaves to achieve high quality parts, including high fiber-volume-fractions and low porosity. A laminate comprised of stacked prepreg plies are cured under a vacuum in addition to ~7 bar of pressure to prevent formation of voids, particularly in interlaminar (inter-sheet/ply) regions. However, manufacturing composites within an autoc ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Decision Support for Operators of Fully Autonomous Systems using RESTORE: Robust Execution System for Trusted Operation in Relevant Environments

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N18BT032

    SSCI and MIT (Prof. Julie Shah) propose to develop and test a system that provides real-time assurance and trust in decisions made by autonomous collaborating vehicles. The proposed system is referred to as the RESTORE (Robust Execution System for Trusted Operation in Relevant Environments) and represents a decision support tool which facilitates decision making by the operator in cases when decis ...

  10. 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 ...
