  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 ...

  2. CMAS mitigation for TBCs using a novel aluminum-phosphate based overlay coating

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N06032

    Applied Thin Films, Inc. proposes to use and an innovative aluminum phosphate solution based coating material to act as a sacrificial barrier layer to protect zirconia thermal barrier coatings from molten CMAS ingress and attack. The proposed coating material, known as Cerablak™, will ideally prevent any decrease in zirconia TBC lifetime expectancy and insulation efficiency due to CMAS infiltra ...

  3. Real Time Wireless Network for Avionics Applications

    SBC: Epsilon Lambda Electronics Corp.            Topic: N05142

    The US Navy has identified the need to develop and demonstrate innovative technologies that leverage existing and emerging commercial real-time wireless circuitry by upconversion of frequency to 60 GHz for short range, high security applications. This topic proposes to gain the advantages of emerging microwave commercial off-the-shelf technology by upconverting to 60 GHz (V-band) where atmospheri ...

  4. Potable Water Production Module

    SBC: Creative Thermal Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N06135

    This proposal describes new technology for water purification based on heat pumps, and more specifically based on transcritical CO2 system. Heat pumps in general are excellent thermal transformation tools when both sides (warm and cold) are utilized. Energy efficiency can be extremely high when designed properly. Transcritical CO2 based systems offer even better opportunity due to characteristic ...

  5. New Material Compositions that Expand the Operating Domain of Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: H. C. Materials Corporation            Topic: N06T034

    At the present time, large-sized PMN-PT piezoelectric crystals, 3" diameter by 8" long, of high quality, can be grown directly from the melt and are commercially available. The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of expanding the operating domain of the PMN-PT based piezoelectric crystals by chemical doping and compositional refinements. Although the piezoelectric properti ...

  6. Micro-factory for Miniaturization, Portability and Remote Production

    SBC: MICROLUTION, INC.            Topic: N06T030

    The authors developed an automated microfactory prototype at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2005 as part of a grant from the US Army Aviation and Missile Command. The prototype provided proof-of-concept for important microfactory technologies, and revealed gaps between the state-of-the-art and the Navy microfactory requirements listed in the solicitation. The proposed innovati ...

  7. Micro-factory for Miniaturization, Portability and Remote Production

    SBC: ROCKFORD ENGINEERING ASSOC., LLC            Topic: N06T030

    The overall goal of the proposed program is the development of a conceptual design for a self contained, portable Micro Factory to machine prismatic parts in remote locations. The portable Micro Factory is specifically designed to support the needs of the U.S. Navy to produce micro scale parts in remote locations without supporting services. The conceptual design will build on the existing body of ...

  8. Acoustic Pattern Recognition for Security Breaching Noise Detection

    SBC: Safety Dynamics            Topic: N06T036

    We propose the development of an acoustic recognition platform that can identify and locate specific sounds in high noise environments, and that can act as a foundation for non-line-of site detection and proactive alerts for other technologies such as cameras and UAVs. The proposed system is based on fundamental principles of neurobiological systems, i.e., it incorporates mathematical models and ...

  9. Use of Adaptive, Non-line of Sight Smart Sensors to Recognize and Locate Threats to Physical Assets and Field Forces

    SBC: Safety Dynamics            Topic: N06076

    To reverse engineer the brain in order to discover novel design principles for physical systems providing enhanced information-processing capabilities for Navy/DoD and homeland security needs. Specifically, we are studying experimentally, and modeling mathematically, fundamental signal processing principles of neurons and neural systems for the purposes of designing and implementing acoustic patte ...

  10. Qualitative Visualization for Network Situational Awareness

    SBC: VISUALYTICS, LLC            Topic: OSD05NC8

    In this project we propose novel internal and visual representations of dynamic and evolving networks that are both more scalable and intuitive than traditional representations. These representations are tuned to reflect the reality that most networks are not static over either time or topology, but rather they are complex time-varying entities that morph significantly with time. Our visual repre ...
