  1. High Temperature Capacitors for Power Electronics

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The development of passive components for power generation and distribution has not kept pace with the rapid advances in wide band gap semiconductors. As a result, a large portion of the size and weight of power electronics systems is due to passivedevices such as capacitors. The most commonly used high-efficiency capacitors are based on high dielectric constant barium titanate doped to yield an ...

  3. AUV-Based Sonar Registration of Seafloor Features and Objects

    SBC: IMAGING MICROSENSORS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In support of future U.S. Navy mine-hunting and surveillance systems, Imaging Microsensors Inc. (IMI) proposes an innovative acoustic method for identifying and locating seafloor features and objects that had been previously detected. The ability tore-acquire an object in sonar images, at arbitrary times and aspect angles, is critical to many applications involving underwater operations, including ...

  4. Electric and Smart Material Self-Contained Actuators for LCAC Rudder Control

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Hydraulic actuators, with the associated hydraulic reservoir and high-pressure lines, perform the rudder-control actuation on the LCAC vehicle. Frequent maintenance and related costs are the primary driver in seeking an alternative self-contained electricactuator to take advantage of recent developments in electric actuator technology. The anticipated benefits to the Navy are reduced maintenance ...

  5. Pocketable Language Translation System for use in Noisy Environments

    SBC: SPEECHGEAR, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Statement: To develop and deploy a Pocketable Language Translation System that identifies languages and user-selected keywords as they are spoken in the foreign language. Users will enter keywords into the system using their native language andthe system will automatically identify when they occur in the foreign language that is being spoken. This system will provide robust and reliable ...

  6. HapNet: Optimizing the Application of Haptics for Training

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Haptic interfaces are being designed to enhance user interactions with entities in virtual environments. Potentially, haptics has widespread training applications and can be expected to enhance the perception of immersion and expand the breadth of skillsthat can be trained. However, while visual and auditory stimuli have long been effectively incorporated into immersive training environments, ha ...

  7. Sensors and Methods to Handle UAV

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To gain acceptance into the fleet, the new generation of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) must mix seamlessly with the existing traffic on an aircraft carrier deck, where up to 50 aircraft and a numerous flight deck personnel may be present. Toward this end,the Navy is setting a UAV requirement to recognize the hand signals that directors (or Yellow Shirts) currently use to direct manned aircraft. We ...

  8. Multiple-security Multimedia Collaboration Environment (MMCE)

    SBC: Architecture Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Traditionally, the security policy between multi-level and coalition activities was implemented by a combination of automated guards and proper human directives about what should be produced for dissemination and by the use of human downgraders formanually checking information flows. However, such traditional solutions do not support the needs of collaborative multimedia applications that will do ...

  9. Mechatronic Actuator Replacement for Hydraulics

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Using a remarkably simple design and few components, the compact mechatronic actuator represents a one-for-one replacement for existing hydraulic actuators such as those currently employed on LCAC. Typically it will be lighter in weight and slightlysmaller in size than its standard hydraulic equivalent thus providing the compact form factor and thrust needed by NCSC Panama City for the target goal ...

  10. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...
