  1. Application of a Uniform Coating Thickness for Complex or Irregular Surfaces

    SBC: CONTEXT FUSION, LLC            Topic: N06063

    Current coating methodologies for geometrically irregular surfaces have become increasing complex and expensive to apply. Yet surfaces exposed to corrosive environments can still suffer the risk of corrosion. While the Navy has invested in edge retentive coating systems, application procedures still require the application of multiple coats due to the challenges inherent in coating complex and ir ...

  7. Miniaturized Commandable Impulsive Acoustic Source Technology for Multi-Static Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW)

    SBC: Sealandaire Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N06041

    The program objective is to develop innovative miniaturized sensors capable of outputting a single impulsive signal, or multiple smaller impulses, in sequential fashion for the purpose of conducting multi-static ASW missions. Most ASW aircraft utilize A-size (4.875”D x 36”L) sources. While these A-size sources are effective, the weight and volume constraints of the MH-60R helicopter, UAV p ...

  9. SiC Based Modular Power Converter for Pump Laser Diode Application

    SBC: Solitronics Llc            Topic: OSD05D03

    A 10 kV SiC power device based high power module will be designed and developed by Solitronics LLC. This module will be used to construct a modular, 50 kW DC/DC power converter. Multiple of this modular DC/DC converters can be used to power an array of pump laser diodes with combined output power as high as 500 kW. Demonstration of high power density and efficiency is a major goal of this project.

  10. Advanced Epoxy System for Large Scale Composite Ship Component Manufacturing Using the VARTM Process.


    A major limitation of current high performance composites made from vinyl ester resins is their performance with carbon fiber reinforcements. Carbon fiber composites can possess much higher specific stiffness and strength than glass fiber composites, but the laminated composite properties depend on a good interface between the matrix resin and the fiber. Since vinyl ester resins typically do not e ...
