The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Grid System Matrix for EMP Transient Protection


    NEMP (Nuclear Electro-Magnetic Pulse), lightning strikes, high powered EMI (Electro-Magnetic Induction), or ESD (Electro-Static Discharge) can impress high transient voltages on wires connecting to electronic modules. These transients are potentially destructive to aircraft electronic components and can result in system failures. To eliminate or substantially reduce the effects of transients on ...

  2. Defining a Standard Fourth Generation Language for Interface Specification and Simulation


    Advances in system development technology have resulted in tools to support applications development, primarily for man-machine interface applications. This effort seeks to define a test tool and associated fourth generation language (4GL) to support the design, specification, and test of system (machine-machine) interfaces. The proposed multi-purpose, reconfigurable communications test suite will ...

  3. Object-Oriented Parallel Processing in Distributed Computing Environments


    Modern distributed systems consisting of powerful workstations and high-speed interconnection networks represent an economical alternative to special-purpose supercomputers for solving a large number of computationally intensive military and civilian applications. However, the development of parallel processing application software to exploit the potential of such distributed systems remains ...

  4. Adaptive Management of Multimedia Networks


    The Navy's C4I systems of tomorrow will contain networked multimedia applications to support functions used by decision makers and war fighters. A number of challenging problems must be addressed before such networked multimedia applications can be implemented in a cost-effective fashion. One of these challenges is the delivery of audio and full-motion video over a heterogeneous, enterprise- ...

  5. Nomadic Routers for Rapidly Deployable Wireless Networks


    A "rapidly deployable wireless network" is a collection of wireless mobile nodes forming a temporary local area network without the aid of any established infrastructure of centralized administration and without any user-initiated configuration actions. Examples of situations where such networks are needed include the front lines in a battlefield, autonomous ground and aerial vehicles used in mil ...

  6. Improved Human Motion Capture Apparatus

    SBC: Choreometrics Llp            Topic: N/A

    Human motion capture devices are in demand in a number of fields. Currently available systems are greatly limited in flexibility and quality. Furthermore, since they depend upon adorning the subject with suits of sensors or targets, the present art is totally unsuited to surveillance or reconnaissance. Without sensors or targets to place on the subject , detection, tracking, and measurement may ...

  7. Low-Leakage Brush Seals for Rocket Turbopumps

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    It has been proven, for gas turbines, that brush seals exhibit substantially lower leakage in close clearance areas than conventional labyrinth seals. Direct efficiency gains from reducing seal leakage losses in turbopumps with brush seals potentially amounts to several percent of the total pump power consumption. As such, the case for transitioning brush seals to rocket turbopumps is compelling ...

  8. High Pressure Compressor Using an Axial-Flow, Mixed-Flow, and Centrifugal Stage with Interstage and Disc

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    High Pressure Compressor (HPC) pressure ratios of up to 40:1 are required to achieve 100:1 cycle pressure ratios. A multi-stage axial HPC configuration will be too long and heavy and too inefficient in later stages (at these higher pressure ratios). Increased tip clearance to span ratio will also lead to low efficiency and surge margin for the axial HPC. The innovations of the proposed work inc ...

  9. Compact, High Performance Compressor Diffusers for Small Gas Turbine Engines Requiring a Wide Operating Range

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Low cost compact diffusers are needed for small gas turbine compressor stages to economically minimize centrifugal compressor overall diameter yet permit high efficiency and wide operating range. The proposer has performed over 130 different detailed tests (on more than 40 different stage configurations) with various conventional and novel diffusers (vaneless, low solidity airfoil, channel, tande ...

  10. System for Detection, Measurement, and Avoidance of High Cycle Fatigue in Turbine Engines

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    High cycle fatigue of turbine engines is of vital concern to the Navy. The proposed project applies an innovative measurement system for blade vibration to an engine health monitoring (EHM) system for monitoring and avoiding HCF damage in turbine engine fans and compressors. Although technical feasibility of the instrumentation system was shown under a prior Phase I Army SBIR, operational f ...
