  1. Instantaneous Self-Sealing Protection for Fuel Tanks

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N12AT001

    Aircraft are susceptible to ballistic and other projectile damage. They are particularly vulnerable to damage to their fuel tanks. As a result, most jet fighters and all U.S. military rotary wing aircraft employ some type of seal-sealing fuel tank technology. Unfortunately, the existing self-sealing fuel tank technologies are heavy and offer unreliable reproducibility in the self-sealing layer res ...

  2. Novel Temperature and Vibration Tolerant Packaging for Inertial Sensors (MEMS)

    SBC: EPACK, INC.            Topic: N12AT008

    The objective of the proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a generic package that provides high vacuum, temperature control and vibration isolation for a wide range of high performance (tactical and navigation grade) micromachined inertial sensors. Inertial sensors (accelerometers and gyroscopes) are now widely used in consumer and industrial applications. However, for high performance nav ...

  3. Computing With Chaos

    SBC: FirstPass Engineering PC            Topic: N12AT013

    In common terminology, chaos refers to a state of randomness or unpredictability. Chaos has a different meaning in physics and mathematics. In physics, chaos is a structured but irregularly patterned behavior displaying an extraordinary sensitivity to initial conditions. Work done by the principals of the proposal has proven that logic elements can be built with chaotic elements and can replicate ...

  4. Efficient HF Transmit Antennas Utilizing Platform Coupling

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: N12AT015

    Virtual EM is proposing a platform coupling technique for improving efficiency of electrically small antennas on ground, sea and air vehicles. The the proposed approach, a portion of the platform becomes the extension of the antenna and hence result in higher performance. Technique has been demonstrated already with the commercial automotive applications and a revised approach is proposed here.

  5. Information Salience

    SBC: Adaptive Cognitive Systems            Topic: OSD11TD1

    A subtle and often unrecognized assumption lies behind the use of the terms salience and perception when they appear in the context of human information processing. Although it has become commonplace to blend the language of low-level physiological process with the language of high-level cognition, there is a substantive theoretical step to be taken before we can claim that, for instance, the abi ...

  6. Advanced Flame Resistant Resin System for Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composite Shipboard Applications

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: N11AT014

    Efforts to replace metals with composites in shipboard applications have emphasized the use of brominated vinyl esters as fire-retardant polymers. Despite their relatively low cost and ease of fabrication, such halogenated polymers produce toxic and potentially carcinogenic gases; their compatibility with carbon fibers is also less than desirable. There is thus a need for environmentally friendly ...

  7. Compact robust testbed for cold-atom clock and sensor applications

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: N13AT018

    Our goal in this Phase II effort is to construct and test a compact, robust testbed for generating laser-cooled strontium atoms on a mobile platform. The focus of the Phase I effort was designing and fabricating an ovenized strontium source that also serves as a 2D+ MOT cell. In Phase II, we will integrate the strontium source into an all-glass-and-silicon vacuum system maintained by a miniature i ...

  8. E-Field Sensor for Submarine Detection

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: N15AT004

    A major challenge in MAD for submarine detection is the separation of the background magnetic noise from the magnetic field anomalies caused by a submarine. Virtual EM Inc., in partnership with the University of Michigan (UM), proposes to develop a novel electric field sensor system for measurement of the background magnetic noise by correlating the magnetic field background noise with the changin ...

  9. Active Transfer Learning for Intelligent Tutoring

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N15AT013

    We propose an intelligent assessment concept that will discover and reason about KSAs in multiple instruc-tional domains and settings. SoarTech will team with world-class researchers from the University of Califor-nia, Davis and the University of Memphis to research and develop TARGET: Transfer via Active Requests to Generalize Effective Training. TARGET will enhance SoarTechs assessment system DA ...

  10. Hybrid High Ampacity Electric Power Cable

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: N15AT016

    The Navy is interested in developing hybrid superconducting power transmission cables that would carry at least 5 kA of current and have a current density of at least 35 MA/m2. The cable should be able to carry 30 % of the rated current even when the superconducting cable fails. We propose to develop a hybrid superconducting cable, based on CORC cables, which potentially have a current density of ...
