  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

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


    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 ...

  8. Numerical Methods Combat Power and Energy Systems (CPES)

    SBC: Martin Defense Group, LLC            Topic: N172129

    New CPES concepts are pushing the electrical power demands of U.S. Navy ships continually higher. What makes these technologies fundamentally different are their very high pulse loads and highly distributed, interconnected architectures. Ships cannot support these new technologies without considerable modifications. The ONR-funded Electric Ship Research and Design Consortium produced the Smart Shi ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
