  1. The S0 UAS, an Air Deployed Solution for Boundary Layer Observations in Turbulent Environments

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 8213

    Previous efforts have demonstrated that targeted observations of tropical storms by UAS can provide extremely valuable data sets for improving forecasts and models, but are also difficult to obtain. A number of obstacles including regulations and the distance required to intercept evolving storms have limited the number of land based flights. The use of airborne deployed UAS have recently overcome ...

  2. Development of a Solar Powered Aerosol Reference Calibrator

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 813

    This project will develop and demonstrate an inexpensive and portable calibration system for low-cost aerosol sensors. Current calibration methods are cost prohibitive and lack generalizability from one location (or season) to the next, making them impractical for implementation. Access Sensor Technologies (AST) proposes to improve and validate a solar powered aerosol reference calibrator (SPARC) ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Advanced PEM Electrocatalysts for Submarine Oxygen Generators

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N162107

    Polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolysis is used on-board submarines to generate breathing oxygen for the crew. Expensive noble metals are used as electrocatalysts and these precious metals contribute to approximately 25% of the cost of the electrolysis cell. Greatly reducing or eliminating the amount of noble metal electrocatalysts would significantly reduce the cost of the electrolysis ce ...

  7. Advanced Direct Digital Exciter for Radar (ADDER)

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: N171051

    In the Phase II effort, CEI will develop an Advanced Direct Digital Exciter for Radar (ADDER) targeted for the AN/SPS 49A(V) (SPS-49) search radar as part of the SPS-49 technical refresh with relevance to other military and commercial applications (e.g. exciter, Software Defined Radio (SDR)). ADDER will directly replace the multi-step Intermediate Frequency (IF) analog conversion with direct-digit ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Manufacturing Process Development for High Temperature Polymer or Nanocomposite Films for Dielectric Capacitors

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: N172128

    Dielectric materials, which store energy electrostatically, are ubiquitous in advanced electronics and electric power systems. Polymer dielectrics have highbreakdown strengths and excellent reliability, are scalable, lightweight and can be shaped into intricate configurations, and are therefore an ideal choice for many power electronics, power conditioning, and pulsed power applications. A variety ...
