  1. Rapid, Low-Cost, Reformable Tooling for Prototyping and Short-run Manufacturing of Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 2PHASE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA03049

    The proposing company's reformable, reusable tooling can substantially reduce the time, cost and effort associated with conventional or alternative tooling while providing the flexibility for prototyping iterations, short-run or low rate manufacture through lengthy product cycles. This Phase II project addresses the use of reformable tooling materials and tooling systems for the production of prot ...

  2. Algorithms for Rapid and Accurate Depth Localization of Targets for Mine Avoidance

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N04218

    The US Navy's new DD(X) destroyer currently under design features amongst its extensive sensor suite an innovative dual (high frequency and mid-frequency) frequency, active bow sonar. One of the primary missions of the high frequency (HF) component of the bow-sonar will be in-stride mine avoidance. Advanced signal processing algorithms, developed for predecessor sonars aboard modern US submarine ...

  3. Automated Strike Package Planning System

    SBC: BONN CORP.            Topic: N01181

    The goals of this Phase II SBIR include development of a strike planning deconfliction system, providing a real-time implementation for replanning, providing a mechanism to deconflict with fallout of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), and providing a scalable and extensible mechanism to support multiple levels of decision echelons. The development of the Strike Planning and Deconfliction (SPAD) p ...

  4. Lightweight hardware design for regenerative fuel cells

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: MDA03100

    Practical use of a RFC for solar powered winged aircraft and lighter-than-air craft has been limited due to weight constraints and the paucity of test data from and practical experience with closed loop RFC hardware. The lightweight cells and endplates developed in Phase I of this program will be applied to the practical implementation of a closed-loop regenerative fuel cell. This RFC will build ...

  5. Exploratory Development of a Small, Light-Weight, Electro-Turbo-Compound Diesel Engine for Hybrid Electric Drives

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: N02115

    The proposed SBIR Phase II effort by D-STAR Engineering Corporation addresses the highest risk technologies necessary for the development of a unique light-weight, heavy-fueled 24 - 30 hp class hybrid-electric propulsion system for UGVs. The two most critical technologies are : 1) development of a compact, light-weight, fuel-efficient engine to operate on JP-8 and other heavy fuels; and 2) devel ...

  6. Near-infrared Optical Biosensor Brain Injury Evaluation

    SBC: Electrical Geodesics, Inc.            Topic: OSD04DH4

    Near-infrared light (NIR) can detect intracranial hematomas with good sensitivity and specificity. However, commercial systems have not proved clinically useful. Early detection of hematomas is important for emergency head injury evaluation. The resulting pressure can cause significant brain damage or death, yet the pressure can be relieved if detected. We propose to create a portable NIR system ...

  7. Innovative Erosion Resistant Coating for Leading Edges of V-22 Rotor Blades

    SBC: HONTEK CORP.            Topic: N02162

    The leading edge of the V-22 rotor blade is made of titanium and nickel abrasion strips bonded to the composite substrate (blade). Although effective for rain erosion protection, nickel and titanium have poor sand erosion resistance. There is a need to protect the nickel and titanium against sand erosion during operation. The Navy is also interested in removing the metallic erosion guard and re ...

  8. Low Friction Coefficient Electroplated Solid-Lubricant/(WC)Ni Nanocomposite Coatings for Transmission Gear Surfaces

    SBC: INFRAMAT CORP            Topic: N04017

    The US Navy seeks none-line-of-sight deposition technologies to produce gear coatings to meet the Navy~{!&~}s loss-of-lubricant requirement. Current rotary platform drive trains, coated with black oxide, barely meet the loss-of-lubricant survivability requirement, and consequently require an expensive auxiliary lubrication system adding additional weight to the drive system. Inframat Corporation ...

  9. Mullite Coated Silicon Carbide Fiber Reinforced Alumina-Zirconia Ceramic Composite Bore Insulator Materials for a Naval Electromagnetic Launcher

    SBC: INFRAMAT CORP            Topic: N04045

    The US Navy seeks high performance toughened electrically insulative bore materials of significant lengths used to separate copper conducting rails in an electromagnetic launcher (EML) for long range naval surface fire support. An EML consists of two electrical conductor rails, a moving element, and an armature. The rails of an EML are supported a certain distance apart from each other by a pair ...

  10. High-Average-Power Cryogenically-Cooled Diode-Pumped Yb:YAG Laser

    SBC: LE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: BMDO97016

    Department of Defense (DOD) interset in developing laser weaponary in the 1960's. Solid-State lasers have been a canidate technology from the earliest time, but for various reasons, this technology has not been developed to a point where they are scalable to high average power lasers. The development of diode laser pump arrays has improved efficiency, but at a considerable increase in systems cost ...
