  1. Autonomous Broad Spectrum Environmental Sentinels

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: A13AT017

    We propose a platform for aerial environmental monitoring based on the integration of two advanced technologies for the first time: a lightweight, flying robotic platform capable of hovering and swarming, and a compact, low-power chemical sensor platform called the Molecular Property Spectrometer (MPS): a robust, low-cost, silicon-chip-based micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) that has been use ...

  2. Autonomous UAV Aerodynamic Performance Analysis for the Near-Ship Environment

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N07T004

    The overall goal of this STTR program is to develop an efficient, high-fidelity, CFD-based design tool for the simulation of ship-board flight testing of autonomous UAV systems. In the first phase of this program, an overall flight simulation framework that employs a modular approach to the flight simulation problem was developed. Phase II of the program demonstrated a fully coupled aircraft/ship ...

  3. Physical Sub-Model Development for Turbulence Combustion Closure

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF13AT12

    ABSTRACT: The innovation proposed is a computationally-tractable, physics-based, portable turbulent combustion modeling strategy for application to a wide range of Air Force aero-propulsive systems, including augmentors, liquid rockets and scramjets. This modeling strategy will be implemented within an Application Programming Interface (API) library suitable for easy integration within Air Force ...

  4. Design Optimization and Analysis of Advanced Exhaust Systems

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N14AT005

    Historically, aircraft engines have featured relatively simple axisymmetric exhaust shapes with several moving parts; however, future engine exhaust systems are expected feature compact, sinuous ducts with complex non-axisymmetric shapes, fixed exit areas, thrust vectoring etc., constructed with a minimum number of moving parts. Their exhaust plumes are currently not well understood; however, LES ...

  5. A Multi-Tiered Lithium-ion Battery Thermal Fault Mitigation Architecture

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N14AT006

    With the continued electrification of military systems, lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are increasingly targeted for electrical energy storage due to their wide operating temperature range and exceptional energy density. However, Li-ion batteries operating in hostile thermal and mechanical environments typical of military aircraft are prone to catastrophic thermally-induced failures. Hazards inclu ...

  6. Detection Avoidance System for Submarines (DASS)

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N14AT016

    In this project, we will develop innovative and advanced display and processing techniques, and innovatively combine existing algorithms, software, and systems, to create a Detection Avoidance System for Submarines (DASS) that assists the submarine operator, planner, and commanding officer (CO) in minimizing the probability that a submarine penetrating into and operating within an A2/AD zone will ...

  8. Seabed Imaging System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N14AT022

    Acoustic imaging is the preferred modality for mine detection. However, acoustic images are noisy and difficult to interpret due to acoustic clutter, the interaction of sound with the seafloor, and potential penetration of sound into the sediment with subsequent reflection. Creare proposes to develop a Seabed Imaging System (SIS) capable of providing detailed information on both the topography and ...

  9. Improving the Life Expectancy of High Voltage Components Using Nanocomposite Surface Solutions

    SBC: PolyK Technologies, LLC            Topic: N14AT025

    We propose to develop a multi-functional coating technology using a three-component nanocomposites to achieve excellent syperhydrophobicity, anti-icing, enhanced track-resistance, and high dielectric breakdown strenght. The coating will be compatible with current Navy existing VLF device materials and be ease of applications in outdoor field, and be long lasting requiring infrequent applications.

  10. Practical Traveling Wave Parametric Amplifier for Quantum Computing and Mixed Signal Applications

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: A14AT010

    A collaboration between research engineers at Solid State Scientific Corporation and the University of MassachusettsBoston proposes the exploration of a new class of superconducting traveling wave parametric amplifier (TWPA) that exploits the large nonlinear inductance of a unique quantum device known as a superinductor. The nonlinear properties of the superinductor provide high gain of weak sign ...
