  1. Clutter Removal and Substantially Improved Submarine and Mine Detection Through Affordable


    This proposal offers a System for improving decisive inferences based on Air Deployable Active Receive (ADAR) sonar, in a form that is suitable for deployment on ADAR sonobuoys. Anticipated near-term improvements include better target recognition and reduced operator fatigue, brought about through improved ping data filtering on ADAR aircraft. Anticipated long-term improvements include increased ...

  3. Multiuser Portable Virtual Reality Training Simulator for Submarines

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: N07T014

    With the escalating pace of tactical submarine operations as well as the increasing strategic deployment of naval assets to distant locations, opportunities for the use of land-based mockup and pier-side simulation training has been greatly reduced. In order to maintain appropriate training levels at remote locations, the U.S. Navy is seeking a portable virtual reality training tool to enable data ...

  4. Aerogel Spray Thermal Barrier

    SBC: OCELLUS, INC.            Topic: N05T015

    Hypersonic weapons are being developed to meet the war fighter's requirements of increased weapon effectiveness, decreased time to target, and increased fly out range. Of importance to hypersonic missiles and projectiles, aerothermic heating caused by the friction of air passing the weapon body, is one area of intensive research. At Mach 4, as the hypersonic weapon passes through the lower atmos ...

  5. A Mission-Specific Equipment Optimization Toolkit (MEOT) for the Dismounted Infantryman


    The overall objective of this STTR is the development, validation, and delivery of an analysis toolkit based on an advanced integrated physics based virtual model of the dismounted infantryman. This model will include the ergonomic, physical, and cognitive interactions between the warfighter, his equipment and his environment. The resulting Mission-Specific Equipment Optimization Toolkit (MEOT) wi ...

  6. Human-Directed Learning for Unmanned Air Vehicle Systems in Expeditionary Operations

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: N07T031

    Effectively targeting and engaging time sensitive targets (TST) is an important part of modern warfare. However, using UAVs for this task is highly challenging because of difficulties in optimally retargeting the UAVs while taking into consideration multiple variables, such as time to target, remaining fuel, uncertainties in the location and type of the TSTs, avoidance of threat areas etc. System ...

  7. Miniaturized Wireless Data Acquisition for Payload Development and Integration

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: N07T016

    The US Navy is in need of a small, robust, flexible data acquisition system for their testing of various submarine and surface payloads. The parameters that are measured during each launch include acceleration, roll/pitch/yaw, bending strain, compressive loads, velocity, displacement, hydrodynamic pressures, etc. All of these parameters are used during prototype testing and development of the di ...

  8. Mixed Initiative Machine for Instructed Computing: MIMIC

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N07T031

    In less than a decade, UAVs have transitioned from a curiosity on the battlefield to a core capability for intelligence and attack. Recent investment has advanced the state the art in algorithms for routing vehicles and for interpreting the imagery they return. However, the intelligence that drives tactical maneuvering remains firmly lodged in the heads of operators. To capture that knowledge and ...

  9. Optical Communications for ASW and MIW Applications

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N07T017

    To get around the obvious limitations of current state of the art underwater acoustic communications systems, it is important to consider the use of optical communications in the next generation of underwater communications systems. An underwater optical communications network has various advantages, such as high data rate capability, clear communication in acoustically noisy environments, and t ...

  10. Innovative Joining and Repair Methodologies Using Hybrid Textile Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N07T021

    Strength, durability and reliability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic properties, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature failure of adhesive bonded joints. The proposed work offers substantial enhancement ...
