  1. Efficient Radiation Simulation in Complex Geometries with Applications to Planetary Entry

    SBC: Jabiru Software and Services            Topic: A206

    NASA aerocapture missions require an accurate evaluation of radiative thermal transport in order to simulate the aerothermal environment around space vehicles. However, present day computation of radiative transport in this complex multi-dimensional environment is frequently done using simple one-dimensional tangent-slab approximations or optically-thick approximations which compromise the accura ...

  2. Exercise Torpedo Buoyancy (Recovery) System

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: N07212

    ANT has recently developed a similar recovery system for our own autonomous vehicle. ANT’s current system lifts a vehicle of lighter negative buoyancy (~64lbs rather than 200 lbs). The system is also designed to operate at less maximum depth (200 m, rather than 900 ft). These changes will necessitate the use of a larger volume lift bag and a modified compressed gas canister for the MK54 torpe ...

  3. Reliable Acoustic Path Vertical Line Array

    SBC: LewTech Company, Inc.            Topic: N08171

    The U.S. Navy has researched the use of various acoustic sensing technologies that exploit the deep water reliable acoustic path (RAP) using vertical line arrays (VLA’s) of vector sensors with success. The buoys used were, however, large, over-the–side deployed, research systems to demonstrate the approach. What is desired is a viable approach that is smaller and can be ideally packaged to fa ...

  4. Low Drag, Underwater Acoustic Source for Sea surface-based Mine Sweeping

    SBC: LewTech Company, Inc.            Topic: N05T029

    The Navy desires the use of RHIB’s in littoral waters for MCM because of its many advantages. However, these advantages can only be accomplished by providing a towed minesweeping approach that allows the RHIB to adequately perform the required mission within its limited towing capacity. The Phase I program established a baseline approach for an electrically driven, towed Acoustic Source that was ...

  5. Ocean Energy Extraction for Sensor Applications

    SBC: LewTech Company, Inc.            Topic: N08T021

    Energy extraction is needed for various ocean deployed devices. Extracted energy can be expected to be at various levels and intermittent, but plentiful. The Phase I effort will recommend an extraction technique that directly converts ocean energy into electrical power. The extractor will be inherently self-starting, require no external inputs from the crew when deployed and produces enough power ...

  6. UHF to L-Band Linear Amplifier 3-D Dielectric Material Enhancements

    SBC: OMEGA MICRO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N06120

    In both the commercial and military electronics markets, there is a continuing trend to reduce size, weight, and overall equipment costs, while at the same time increasing functionality and improving reliability of the electronic circuitry. Integrated circuit manufacturers have addressed this need by integrating greater functionality directly onto the silicon chips, thus yielding the System-on-Chi ...

  7. Modular, Deployable Sensor System (MDSS)

    SBC: SKY SIGHT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N08059

    The proposed project will create an innovative sensor system to augment an outer ring of defense used for queuing, classifying, and tracking go-fast boats, small and commercial craft, swimmers and divers that are a threat to harbors, anchorages, and other high value assets. The Modular, Deployable Sensor System (MDSS) will be part of the Navy’s deployable capability in locations where US or hos ...

  8. Automated Shipboard Dishwashing System

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: N06171

    The SHOT Automated Shipboard Dishwashing System will provide users an automatic dishwashing and sortation system. The SHOT ASDS solution is a robust, modular drop-in solution that can either interface with existing dishwashing systems or can include a dishwasher/dryer tailored for the specific application. The SHOT ASDS will provide friendly system interfaces for the user to tailor the automation ...

  9. Physics Based Gear Health Prognosis via Modeling Coupled with Component Level Tests

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: N07T010

    Investment in health and usage monitoring systems (HUMS) has proven to yield significant safety and cost benefits to the military. For instance, the Helicopter Integrated Diagnostic System (HIDS) has achieved a documented success rate of up to 70 percent in detecting faults. However, despite all the improvements in failure detection, the remaining 30 percent of faults are not diagnosed. The work ...

  10. A Noninvasive Sensor/Control Suite for Health Monitoring and Extended Life of Aircraft Generation Systems

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: N06T007

    Catastrophic failures in aircraft electrical power systems can compromise the readiness, safety, and capabilities of the war-fighter. In this effort, a multi-physics suite of tools will be developed based upon the successful Phase I research to provide a comprehensive prognostics and health management system (PHM) for aircraft generators and associated electrical systems. The PHM will be based upo ...
