  1. A Lightweight Crashworthy Troop Seat for Naval Helicopters that Protects Occupants of all Sizes and Gender

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N04008

    This proposal outlines a program to continue the work begun in the Phase I effort. In the Phase I effort, a material search was conducted and the best available materials were selected for use. Load path and structural analyses were conducted and the lightest weight seat concept was developed. The differences required to enable the seat to be retrofit into the several different Navy helicopters ...

  2. Sonobuoy Launched small UAV system

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N04T004

    The Navy and other government-sponsored agencies use the P-3 aircraft. Due to the diverse missions and limited number of P-3 aircraft, the most economical and expeditious way to enhance operations and assure crew safety would be to incorporate low-cost expendable tactical unmanned air vehicles (UAV's). If UAVs were incorporated into each P-3, a load-out of sonobuoy launched UAV's with interchange ...

  3. Technologies to Defeat Improvised Explosive Devices (IED’s)

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N04901

    The objective of the proposed development effort is to utilize a sensor which detects IEDs and detonation devices. The sensor detector is mounted on a small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) such that detection can be performed from a autonomous airborne platform ahead of a convoy or patrol, thereby reducing the risk of loss of life. A positive identification was achieved from a UAV approximately 75 ...

  4. Universal BIST/Prognostics Approach for Switch Mode Power Supplies

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: N03197

    Providing effective Prognostics/Health Maintenance (PHM) capabilities is a key objective for the JSF. A key part of PHM includes electronic prognostics, where an impending failure in an electronic module can be predicted before it occurs and thus is very useful for such critical systems. Power converters are ubiquitous, but often are prone to unexpected failures in military systems. Using a com ...

  5. Spread-Spectrum Electromagnetic Penetrator Data Link

    SBC: US POSITIONING GROUP, LLC            Topic: AF04159

    In future designs of penetrating weapons, there is a need to provide a bi-directional communications link between the surface and the penetrating weapon. We call this concept the Penetrator Data Link (PDL). We describe a Phase II effort to further design, develop, and test a shock-hardened prototype of a multi-channel, CDMA, spread-spectrum data link for a application in penetrating munitions. T ...

  6. Permanent Fiber Optic Splice

    SBC: ALL OPTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N04002

    We will develop a permanent fiber optic splice prototype that is specially designed to meet the stringent performance and reliability requirements for military and aerospace avionic applications. This permanent fiber optic splice is intended to provide < 1 dB change in insertion loss over a wide range of operating environment, including a temperature change from -65 to 150 C. It will also provide ...

  7. Diver Worn Equipment for Diving in Chemical/Biological, Toxic Industrial Chemical and Toxic Industrial Material (TIC/TIM)

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: CBD02201

    Terrorist attacks (e.g. USS Cole, chemical and biological warfare) and accident recovery (e.g. TWA 800, Ehime Maru) can require extensive Navy dive operations in contaminated, hazardous environments. However, current diving equipment was not designed to operate in such conditions, much less protect divers from exposure to contaminants in the water. These environments are so severe that equipment d ...

  8. Neuromorphic Control System for Powered Limb Splints

    SBC: Advensys, LLC            Topic: A04T009

    AdveNSys will develop a suite of products to provide new orthotic and prosthetic options for people with lower limb dysfunction or lower limb amputation. We will enhance our biologically-inspired adaptive neuromorphic control systems technology and integrate it with biomorphic compliant actuators, advanced sensor systems, and lightweight orthotic/prosthetic components to produce a suite of produc ...

  9. Advanced Fast-electronic Power Control System for Fuel Cell

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: AF04194

    A robust power architecture and control scheme was developed in Phase I that provides a smooth power flow from fuel cell/battery to the load. The key element was a low cost bi-directional power converter control system. The proof-of concept of the system was validated for a 1st generation low power design and a 2nd generation high power design was developed. The design blocks for achieving the de ...

  10. A Novel Solid Electrolyte for Lithium Battery Systems

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: AF04193

    Solid lithium-ion conductive electrolytes offer great promise to the development of high performance, safe lithium based batteries. The successful completion of Phase I work demonstrates the development of a large anion moiety solid electrolyte that offers high lithium-ion conductivity (10-2 S/cm) at ambient temperatures, high transference number (>0.5), and wide electrochemical voltage window (> ...
