  1. Self-Localization of MicroSensors using Ultra-Wideband RF

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: SB043043

    The overall objective of this project is to determine if Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Time of Flight measurement techniques can be used to enable Unattended Ground Sensors to self-localize. Self-localization would enable systems of ground sensors to provide geographically tagged alarm information thus greatly increasing the value of the reported data. In Phase I, Time Domain produced and field-verified a ...

  3. Ram Air Turbine Driven Power and Cooling Unit for Enhanced EA-18 Pod Effectiveness

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N04239

    CFDRC has completed preliminary design of a next generation Ram Air Turbine (RAT) suitable for operation in the Navy’s next generation electronic warfare pod. The RAT will be capable of delivering 60 KVA at a sea level flight speed of 280 knots. The unit will also be capable of providing adequate liquid coolant to maintain electronic component operating temperatures below specified levels. Du ...

  4. Significant Optical Manufacturing Advancement (SOMA) Process

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: B02004

    The Significant Optical Manufacturing Advancement (SOMA) program will capture the principles of Design for Assembly (DFA) and apply them to the fabrication of precision optical systems. This will provide the Navy with the ability to design optical systems that can be assembled efficiently for much lower costs. We will use the DFA discipline of axiomatic design coupled with optical design equations ...

  5. Predictive Fault Detection for Unmanned Communications Facilities

    SBC: INSTRUMENTAL SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: MDA04064

    Communications systems depend on the health of their equipment and components to perform reliably over extended periods of time. Maintaining the health of equipment in remote, unmanned communications terminals is critical, because unscheduled repairs have significant impact on system availability. In Phase I of this SBIR project Instrumental Sciences, Inc. (ISI) researched methods to improve the e ...

  6. Measurement of Angular Valve Displacement in High Vibration Environments

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: AF04291

    During the Phase 1 effort Streamline Automation demonstrated that the use of a bushing assembly, when paired with the appropriate flexible shaft coupling, could significantly reduce the loads on the shaft of Angular Displacement Transducers (ADTs). These ADTs are currently used as position indicators for quarter turn valves in the ASTF at AEDC. The ADTs are subjected to high vibrational loads du ...

  7. Portable Near Infrared Detection of Blast Lung Injury

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD04H14

    Rapid noninvasive detection of blast lung injury is of great interest for forward military medical care, homeland defense, and civilian trauma. Near Infrared and Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy (NIRS, DOS) are novel techniques that can penetrate non-invasively through the thorax/lungs, detect air/blood beneath the surface, and measure the lung function. The overall objective of this project is to dev ...

  8. Dual Liquid Crystal Flat Panel Display

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB041001

    There are a growing number of scenarios where remote equipment and vehicles must be operated in environments unsafe for human presence. Ideally the remote vision system should mimic physical presence as much as possible. Steadily, the demand for stereoscopic (3D) viewing increases, in order to preserve depth of field information, and to ‘immerse’ the operator as much as possible in the scen ...

  9. Extreme Computing with Light, Low Power, and Small Equipment (ECLIPSE)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N02047

    The military’s recognition of the need to share battlefield intelligence between all branches of the armed services has led to the development of the Joint Fires Network (JFN). In JFN, intelligence data from the many sensors deployed must be assimilated for targeting information. Computers perform some of these operations while people perform others. The bottom line is that there are massive ...

  10. Active Control of Lean Blowout Using an ANN-Based On-Line Direct Controller

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N04126

    Combustor Lean BlowOut (LBO) is a significant challenge in modern military gas turbine combustors. LBO can occur either during rapid engine deceleration or during operation at idle conditions with water/steam ingestion. Current practice is to design adequate safety margins to avoid the onset of blowout. However, significant engine performance improvements can be realized though the development o ...
