  1. Bottom Feeder- A Highly Maneuverable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

    SBC: Tridentis Advanced Marine Vehicles LLC            Topic: 822

    The Bottom Feeder project is designed to prove out the research done in Phase I using a prototype platform. The prototype will be a full size version of the platform designed during Phase I. The Phase I platform was designed to work in two operational configurations, a highly efficient mode and a highly maneuverable mode, with the ability to switch between them while submerged. The platform is equ ...

  2. 1 Micron Fiber Optic Receiver for Mil-Aero Environment

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N171031

    In this SBIR effort we will collaborate with Dr. J.C. Campbell’s research group at the University of Virginia (UVA) in developing a high-power, high-speed, high-linearity photodiode (PD) receiver optimized for operation at 1 micron wavelength. In phase II, we will fabricate, characterize, package and commercialize the 1 micron photodiode that we have successfully designed and studied in our phas ...

  3. Oxygen Mask Development to Improve and Facilitate Mask Discipline

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N171007

    This Phase II effort is to develop and test prototype custom oxygen mask designs and fabrication processes. The developed masks will be produced initially as upgrades to existing oxygen masks such as the Gentex MBU-23/p and in the future be issued to pilots directly. Improvements will be evaluated for improved mask discipline. Oceanit shall deliver prototype custom masks and demonstrate custom mas ...

  4. Methods for Measuring an Acoustic Array’s Straightness and for Autonomous Mechanical Straightening to Avoid Contact with Sea Bottom Under All Operatio

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N171055

    The Navy uses towed arrays in the long-range tracking of submarine contacts. The acoustic performance of the array is dependent on the straightness of the array which is subject to “drooping” as ship velocities decrease and to bending and turning due to currents. The Navy is seeking innovation to autonomously straighten the array and protect the array from damage due to seafloor dragging. Maka ...

  5. Abrasive Blasting Nozzle Noise Control

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N172134

    The proposed effort aims to develop technologies to improve the acoustics performance of abrasive blasting nozzles for paint and surface coatings removal. The objective is to investigate the noise generation mechanisms of abrasive blasting operations and develop a quiet, effective and efficient nozzle. This development is to optimize the acoustics and productivity performance of blasting nozzles a ...

  6. Virtual Antenna Array Mapping

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: N172110

    Vadum will develop and prototype a new beamforming protocol for Distributed Coherent Electronic Warfare (DCEW) that will implement distributed TX and RX beamforming algorithms between a cluster of nodes, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), and uncooperative receivers. The Vadum approach uses an innovative Master-Slave architecture to achieve time and frequency synchronization at minimum overhe ...

  9. Tracking Algorithm(s) for Determining Highest Probability Predicted Intercept Points(s) in the AEGIS Combat System

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: N181046

    Vadum will develop and mature the Threat Prediction for Air Defense (TPAD) algorithms which calculate Predicted Intercept Points (PIPs) to support AEGIS Combat System engagements of air defense threats. The TPAD algorithms monitor incoming tracks and compare the tracks to an internal database of threat motion. TPAD predicts the future state of the threat at a desired range from the firing ship bas ...

  10. Scheduling Algorithm for Efficient and Effective Predicted Intercept Points (PIPs) for Multiple Targets

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: N181055

    Vadum will develop the Prediction, Optimization, and Scheduling of System Engagements (POSSE) algorithms in order to efficiently and effectively schedule AEGIS Combat System engagements of closely spaced air defense threats. The POSSE algorithms model dense air defense engagements as a graph of connected engagement opportunities. Using graph traversal algorithms, the optimal set of engagement oppo ...
