  1. Quantum Cascade Laser Array with Integrated Wavelength Beam Combining

    SBC: Pendar Technologies, LLC            Topic: N19AT005

    Pendar Technologies proposes to develop the next generation of compact, high power quantum cascade laser (QCL) sources with output power exceeding 10 Watts at a wavelength of 4.6 microns. The proposed subsystem will include a DFB QCL array integrated monolithically with power amplifiers, low-loss passive waveguides resulting from ion implantation and optical elements aimed at realizing on-chip wav ...

  2. Joint User-Centered Planning Artificial Intelligence Tools Effective Mission Reasoning (JUPITER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N19BT029

    Effective mission planning is critical for military strategy and execution. This process is complex as human operators must consider many variables (e.g., resource limitations, threats, risks) when formulating a plan to accomplish mission goals. Although powerful tools, such as the Navy’s Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS), provide advanced functionality, mission planning remains a hybrid acti ...

  3. Conjugate heat transfer for LES of gas turbine engines

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19BT027

    Current design tools for gas turbine engines invoke a variety of simplifying assumptions to estimate heat transfer to solid/metal engine components (e.g., isothermal boundary conditions). These approximations are often not valid, result in inaccurate predictions of heat transfer, and ultimately compromise the thermal integrity of propulsion and power systems. Wall-modeled large eddy simulation (WM ...

  4. Interlaminar Reinforcement of Composites via Tailored CNT Nanomorphologies

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: N19AT003

    The Phase I effort of this STTR aimed to reinforce ply-drop laminates. When laminates taper from a thicker to thinner cross section, the termination of plies locally create resin pockets that can reduce the life of a part due to the lower strength of the resin compared to the fibers, local stress concentrations, and the propensity for voids in these resin rich areas. Thus, Metis Design Corporation ...

  5. Innovations in Designing Damage Tolerant Rotorcraft Components by Interface Tailoring

    SBC: HARP ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: N19AT003

    The performance of a composite material is heavily influenced by the strength and toughness of the interlaminar region, which is the resin rich area between the plies of a fiber reinforced composite.  The interlaminar region generally provides a direct path for crack propagation since no continuous reinforcement is present and is often the cause of failure in materials subjected to cyclic loadin ...

  6. A Wavelength-Scalable Dual-Stage Photonic Integrated Circuit Spectrometer

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N19AT023

    In this program, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will team with Professor Ali Adibi’s group at the Georgia Institute of Technology to develop a photonic integrated circuit (PIC) spectrometer that can simultaneously achieve high-resolution over wide-bandwidths using a scalable and foundry-ready approach. While a PIC-based spectrometer is a key component for on-chip Raman, fluorescence, and absorptio ...

  7. Cyber Adversary Discovery Engine (CADE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N19AT021

    Cyber warfare is a rapidly expanding, critical battlefield for the US Navy. Attacks on infrastructure, ship systems, and sailors themselves can significantly reduce operational readiness and deployment time, and can be very costly. To prepare and successfully defend this rapidly evolving battlefield, defensive cyberspace operations (DCOs) must analyze and forensically investigate attacks, but few ...

  8. Comprehensive Surf Zone Modeling Tool

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N19AT010

    The objective of this project is to advance the capabilities of the Coastal Battlefield Reconnaissance and Analysis (COBRA) system by creating a Surf Zone Modelling Tool (SZT) that can create realistic synthetic imagery of the surf zone (SZ). Through the use of this synthetic imagery the COBRA Program will be enabled to inform concept of operations (CONOPS) in unfamiliar environments as well as mo ...

  9. Algorithms for Look-down Infrared Target Exploitation

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: NGA18A001

    The multidisciplinary area of GEOINT is changing and becoming more complex. A major driver of innovation in GEOINT collection and processing is artificial intelligence (AI). AI is being leveraged to help accomplish spatial analysis, change detection, and image or video triage tasks where filtering objects of interest from large volumes of data is critical. NGA is confronting the changing GEOINT l ...

  10. Innovative Processing Techniques for Additive Manufacture of 7000 Series Aluminum Alloy Components

    SBC: SENSIGMA LLC            Topic: N18AT005

    Naval aircraft components are routinely made of 7000 series aluminum alloys due to their strength, weight and fatigue properties. Present Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes fall short of producing 7000 series Al alloys successfully due to lack of porosity, and thermal and composition control. In-situ methods implemented to date largely only yield information about the component surface and othe ...
