  1. 3D Memristor Architectures for Software Defined Radio

    SBC: Privatran, LLC            Topic: N093222

    PrivaTran proposes the use of newly-developed manufacturing methods that convert materials commonly found in conventional integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing into memristor devices with increased packing density and an advanced, three-dimensional (3D) architecture. The memristor devices can be formed in the interconnect layers of a conventional IC so that the area available for underlying transi ...

  2. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  3. A Flexible Power Management System Architecture for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N09T015

    Small UUV range in size from 9"to 12.75"in diameter and are used for missions that include forward fleet reconnaissance, mine detection, inspection, oceanography, payload delivery, and communication; a flexible and modular energy storage system with advanced power management system architecture (PMSA) is needed to meet these applications. To be effective the PMSA must be developed with proper ener ...

  4. A Propulsion-Enabled Control System for Precise Submarine Maneuvering

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: N092139

    U.S. Navy submarines are equipped with an increasing number of actuators, including azimuth thrusters, that can enable an unprecedented level of maneuverability with a properly designed and executed control system. In this Phase II effort, Impact Technologies has teamed with L-3 Communications and Virginia Tech to continue development of an automated submarine propulsion-enhanced control (ASPEC) s ...

  5. ACCESS: Automated Comparison and Clustering of Entity Signatures

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: N092149

    Available features to detect personas vary depending on the type of intelligence one is observing, and only facets of a persona are observable in each medium. New and enabling technology needs to be developed to search, capture, compare and identify disparate behaviors that may represent personas of interest. In response to this challenge, 21st Century Technologies proposed the Phase 1 Automated C ...

  6. Acoustic Vector Projector Technology

    SBC: LewTech Company, Inc.            Topic: N102181

    Although the performance of naval systems for Anti-Submarine Warfare and Counter-Torpedo Detection, Classification, and Localization systems are presently adequate for current missions they are limited by the size, power and detection range of the associated sonar transducer arrays. What is required for the emerging missions are approaches that will reduce the volume and weight of present arrays w ...

  7. Advanced Flight Controls for Ultra-agile Small Unmanned Air Vehicles

    SBC: LITE MACHINES CORP.            Topic: N102172

    The proposed research will explore innovative flight control methodologies combining recent advances in system identification, novel flight sensors, and neural network based adaptive flight control design to develop a new, high bandwidth flight controller architecture capable of rejecting the disturbing effects of wind gusts and turbulence. The proposed controller architecture will be most appropr ...

  8. Advanced Gas Turbine Engine Exhaust Waste Heat Recovery System


    Navy ships use of gas turbine engines for both main propulsion and electrical power generation. With typical simple cycle thermal efficiencies of around 32-35%, a great deal of energy is lost as exhaust waste heat from the gas turbines. Clearly there is a need to develop systems that can recover as much as possible of this waste energy, and as stated in the program goal, achieve at least a 20% red ...

  9. Advanced Hybrid Energy System for Wet and Dry Submersibles

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N092132

    The demand for greater and safer energy storage for the wet and dry submersibles and buoys has pushed the limits of current battery technology. This energy demand is in response to the need for extended mission operations and advances in electronic equipment needed for greater combat effectiveness. By replacing the existing battery with a fuel cell hybrid system, extended operation periods are pos ...

  10. Advanced Modular, Energy Storage Technology

    SBC: MOHAWK INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N091053

    The overall objective of the Phase I and Phase II proposed effort is to design, test and demonstrate the ability of a 500 kW test bed prototype energy storage module to withstand a shipboard environment. The Phase I tradeoff design studies sized and identified a shock tolerant flywheel energy storage modular system configuration that will yield the desired power and energy densities while also hav ...
