  2. Mitigation of USV Motions via Wave Sensing and Prediction

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: N10AT036

    Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC) has teamed with the Department of Ocean Engineering at The University of Rhode Island to devise a sensor suite and computer algorithm to predict ocean waves to aid autonomous boat navigation in heavy weather. The centerpiece of the sensor suite is a Lidar designed by ASC that is adapted to image the ocean at glancing angles. It’s ability to acquire a 3D s ...

  3. Innovative Application of Urban ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) Imagery for High Fidelity Training Devices

    SBC: AECHELON TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N09BT038

    Military operations in urban areas have increasingly become a key capability for our armed forces. The increased risk of use of the unique nature of large urban environments by hostile forces to their tactical advantage, and related civilian casualties, requires updated procedures, comprehensive training, and constantly evolving capabilities. Current training technologies fail to address the signi ...

  5. Analysis and Modeling of Foreign Object Damage (FOD) in Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)

    SBC: Alpha Star Corporation            Topic: N10AT010

    A significant barrier to the insertion of ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials into advanced aircraft engines is their inherent lack of toughness under foreign object Damage (FOD) as well as post FOD. Our team will develop and demonstrate a physics-based model for FOD/post FOD in CMC’s. The model will incorporate physical mechanisms associated with impact for two different CMC systems: a) ma ...

  10. Advanced Real Time Battery Monitoring and Management System

    SBC: Spectral Labs Incorporated            Topic: N10AT013

    Although many off-the-shelf and semi-custom Battery Management Systems (BMS) are available, the Navy recognizes with this STTR Topic, and recent history illustrates, that a safety system with the required reliability and performance for mission critical applications has not been demonstrated. This proposal will detail the Spectral Labs Incorporated (SLI) and University of California, Davis (UCD) t ...
