  1. TOPMAST: Training Operational Performance via Measure Automation and Scenario-generation Technology

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N18AT003

    As the number of emerging warfare capabilities increases, adaptive training is required in order to keep pace with the corresponding increase in the scale and complexity of training regimes. To enable truly adaptive training, training systems need to both (1) automatically generate training scenarios and (2) automatically assess trainee performance. Lastly, (3) diagnostic visualization technologie ...

  2. Next-Generation, Power-Electronics Materials for Naval Aviation Applications

    SBC: Sixpoint Materials, Inc.            Topic: N18AT004

    This STTR project develops an innovative seed fabrication technology to address the fundamental size-quality limitation of gallium nitride (GaN) substratesthe indispensable key component for GaN-based vertical high-power devices. Currently, there is no viable GaN technology to realize large-area and low-defect substrates simultaneously. The technology producing 6" and larger GaN wafers results in ...

  3. Complete Lithium Ion Batteries Produced by Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: AKITA INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N18AT008

    Demand for portable power continues to expand, and new portable devices require increased variability in form factor. Furthermore, expired batteries may not be easily replaceable due to the lack of standard geometries. New manufacturing technologies are necessary to respond to each of the challenges. Additive manufacturing (AM) is a promising approach that is well known for its ability to quickly ...

  4. Meaning-Aligned Record Synthesis for Training Emerging Capabilities (MARSTEC)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N18AT003

    Operational experts collect recorded data about emerging tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) from sources such as live and virtual training exercises, and numerous test and evaluation simulations. However, instructional designers cannot easily reuse the recorded data to create new training. Without sufficient access to operational experts, expert knowledge is inaccessible and fragmented, of ...

  5. Concrete Materials Characterization (COMAC)

    SBC: Luminit LLC            Topic: N18AT006

    To meet the U.S. Navy, specifically PMA-201, need for nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of concrete, including evaluating its strength, material properties, and damage localization, Luminit, LLC, and Southern Illinois University (SIU) propose to develop a novel Concrete Materials Characterization (COMAC) system, combining several methods of concrete characterization into a single sensor/software com ...

  6. Innovative additive manufacturing (AM) process for successful production of 7000 series aluminum alloy components using Smart Optical Monitoring Syste

    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 falls short of producing 7000 series Al alloys successfully due to lack of porosity, thermal and composition control. In-situ methods implemented to date largely only yield information about the component surface and other m ...

  7. Novel Cooling System for Laser Enclosure

    SBC: Photonwares Corporation            Topic: N18AT001

    We propose to utilize a laser 3D printing manufacturing technique to realize an ultra high efficiency micro-channel laser head cooling system with high thermal load capacity in a small volume package. The new approach incorporates key technical innovations that drastically increase the forced water flow interaction surface area and the metal thermal conductivity. The approach enables conformal geo ...

  8. Layered Inference for Cyber Network Knowledge Synthesis (LINKS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N18AT019

    Providing effective cyber defense for the DoD is compounded by the fact there is not a single physical or logical entity that defines cyberspace. In reality, DoD networks are often composed of three disparate but interacting layers: a physical layer that defines the structure of the network (e.g., computers and routers), a logical layer that represents the static or dynamic state of data within th ...

  9. Active Imaging through Fog

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N18AT021

    Active imaging systems are used to for imaging in degraded visual environments like that found in marine fog and other environments with a high level of attenuation and scattering from obscurants like fog, rain, smoke, and dust.These systems are still limited in range and resolution. SA Photonics is taking advantage of multiple image enhancement techniques, like wavelength tunability, pulse contro ...

  10. Accurate Flow-Through Conductivity Sensor for Autonomous Systems

    SBC: D 2 INCORPORATED            Topic: N18AT022

    UUVs have become increasingly important tools in the collection of environmental data. Their unique ability to operate independent of surface vessel conditions allows oceanographic seawater measurements when traditional means is not possible. Historically sensor packages for UUVs have been based on adaptions of ship deployed equipment. Recent development in sensors, such as the Hybrid Flow Through ...
