  1. Magnesium Alloys for Additive Manufacturing by Artificial Intelligence (MAGAMAI)

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: N20BT026

    NAVY seeks high strength, low density, and high corrosion resistant alloys for structural components which can be processed by additive manufacturing (AM). Magnesium (Mg) alloys are candidates for fuel-efficiency applications, especially the aircrafts. They satisfy density, strength, and stiffness for many designs. However, their low corrosion resistance cannot ensure design lifetimes.  This limi ...

  2. Efficient Burn-in Process for High Power QCL Lasers

    SBC: Raytum Photonics LLC            Topic: N20BT029

    Raytum Photonics teams with the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) of University of Maryland in order to come up with an efficient burn-in process to effectively screen out infant mortality and accurately predict life time for QCL lasers in shortest possible time.   The proposed burn-in process is based on an accelerated degradation model which speeds up the burn-in process by el ...

  3. Vector Magnetometer based on Dispersive Cavity Readout of Nitrogen Vacancies in Diamond

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N19AT006

    Vescent Photonics, LLC, (Vescent) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory (MIT-LL) propose to develop a low-noise, field-deployable vector magnetometer based on the dispersive cavity readout (DCR) of nitrogen vacancy (NV) diamond.  Solid-state quantum systems based on NV-diamond centers have many intrinsic properties that make them well-suited as stable, sensitive platfor ...

  4. Accelerated Burn-In Process for High Power Quantum Cascade Lasers to Reduce Total Cost of Ownership

    SBC: Adtech Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N20BT029

    Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) are one of the most versatile sources of radiation in the mid-infrared range and have found applications in a variety of fields. Despite their widespread adoption, one of the main hurdles holding QCLs back from large volume manufacturing is the large cost of ownership. While QCLs, like most semiconductor devices based on III-V compounds, can leverage the economies of ...

  5. Bounding generalization risk for Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: Euler Scientific            Topic: NGA20A001

    Deep Neural Networks have become ubiquitous in the modern analysis of voluminous datasets with geometric symmetries. In the field of Particle Physics, experiments such as DUNE require the detection of particle signatures interacting within the detector, with analyses of over a billion 3D event images per channel each year; with typical setups containing over 150,000 different channels.  In an ...

  6. Additive Manufacturing of Inorganic Transparent Materials for Advanced Optics

    SBC: IRFLEX CORPORATION            Topic: N19BT028

    Additive manufacturing (AM) technology offers the capability to use multiple glass materials and to print complex freeform shape designs and gradient index (GRIN) optics. Although AM is widely used to print commercial 3-dimension metal and plastic/polymer parts, there are no viable commercial solutions for AM of inorganic transparent glasses for high-quality optical components.The proposed work wi ...

  7. Indicator Yarns to Detect Degradation in Nylon Webbing

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N19BT032

    Nylon webbing is used for the load bearing elements in the parachute system - harnesses and risers, and degrades with use, depending on environmental conditions and frequency of use. The environmental factor that causes the most degradation of polymers in webbing is ultraviolet (UV) irradiation; this factor, combined with repeated mechanical strain, can accelerate degradation to a point where the ...

  8. Multi-Input Strength Loss Sensing for Webbing Structures

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N19BT032

    Webbing textiles are critical to many personnel safety systems in U.S. Navy aircraft, however there are presently no viable non-destructive techniques to detect when the load strength has degraded to an unsafe level. Luna is developing a multi-input approach to address this need by combining the advantages of mechanochromic dyes/polymers with embedded fiber optic sensors. Mechanochromic dyes will ...

  9. Non-destructive Webbing Strength Indicator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N19BT032

    Webbing is strong, woven material that is used to secure cargo as well as for safety equipment such as seat belts, harnesses, and parachute rigging. Due to its extensive use in Military applications, the strength of the webbing is a key component of equipment design, especially in the case of safety gear that protects soldiers, as lives may be dependent on the strength and proper performance of th ...

  10. Analysis and Modeling of Erosion in Gas-Turbine Grade Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)

    SBC: Alpha Star Corporation            Topic: N19BT033

    A significant barrier to the insertion of ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials into advanced aircraft engines is their inherent lack of toughness under erosion and post erosion. Our team will develop and demonstrate a physics-based model for erosion/post erosion of CMC’s at room and elevated temperatures (RT/ET). The ICME (Integrated Computational Material Engineering) Physics based Multi Sc ...
