  1. RANS Turbulence Closure Augmented with Physics-Informed Machine Learning for Hypersonic Flows

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N22AT016

    Development of hypersonic aircraft and weapon systems has become a critical focus for the Department of Defense to maintain global strike and projection of force capabilities. Despite decades of research, traditional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methods are either incapable of adequately predicting complex features in hypersonic flows or too expensive to be of practical use for vehicle desig ...

  2. Steerable, Directional Antennas to Increase Small Mobile Platform Communication Range

    SBC: IMSAR LLC            Topic: N22AT021

    Traditionally, small platforms that need to communicate with airborne platforms use omnidirectional antennas. This makes it simple to communicate with mobile airborne platforms but reduces the communication link range compared to directional antennas. However, directional antennas require pointing at the airborne platform, which requires a means of moving the antenna to follow the motion of the ai ...

  3. Low-Cost Compact Automated Position-Correcting Antenna Control Unit

    SBC: IXI Technology Electronic Warfare, LLC            Topic: N22AT021

    The Navy operates hundreds of thousands of sensors and datalinks across unattended surface and undersea buoys, surface, undersea, and air vehicles manned and unmanned, and man-portable nodes.  Most of these use low-gain omnidirectional RF antennas for sensing or communications, and these antennas must radiate in all directions to ensure sensor coverage and data links are maintained regardless of ...

  4. Marine Atmospheric Boundary Layer Profiles via Satellite-based Remote Sensing Data Fusion

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N22AT024

    Satellite-based atmospheric soundings are extremely valuable in remote regions lacking nearby radiosondes. They provide a depiction of temperature and water vapor structure to improve prediction of clouds, storms, and rainfall, and massively contribute to numerical weather prediction (NWP) via data assimilation. However, satellite profiles are too smooth and under-determined, thereby suffering fro ...

  5. Lidar-like 3D Imaging System for Accurate Scene Understanding

    SBC: ENGENIUSMICRO LLC            Topic: N22AT020

    The Department of Navy (DON) needs an inexpensive lidar-like 3D imaging sensors that have high depth and lateral resolution, have a large field-of view for reliable object detection, respond in real time, and work at medium to long ranges in indoor and outdoor environments. This need can be met by combining stereovision with an adaptive laser range finding array that can selectively increase the r ...

  6. Photonic Integrated Analog-to-Information Receiver

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: N21AT004

    As complexity and performance requirements increases for RF sensors and systems for electronic warfare applications, the need for innovative and low-power compressive sensing (CS) technologies will become urgent in power constrained mobile platforms. There are several DOD and government application areas where this holds true and the high-performance CS technology to be developed in this program c ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Eye-readable Solution-based Dye Displacement Probe for Large-area Detection of Opioids

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD20AT001

    Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc., in collaboration with Bowling Green State University, proposes to develop a field-rugged, eye-readable indicating spray solution that can immediately detect synthetic opioids over a large area of contamination (i.e., military vehicles, individual protective equipment, clandestine labs, etc.). The proposed chemosensor in a spray solution format will detect multipl ...

  9. Algorithm Performance Evaluation with Low Sample Size

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: NGA20C001

    The team of Signature Research, Inc. and Michigan Technological University will develop and demonstrate methods and metrics to evaluate the performance of machine learning-based computer vision algorithms with low numbers of samples of labeled EO imagery. We will use the existing xView panchromatic dataset to demonstrate a proof-of-concept set of tools. If successful, in Phase II, we will extend t ...

  10. Innovative Method for Development of Hemp based Fabric

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N21AT001

    Hemp-based clothing are excellent for outdoor active wear, due to high strength, UV-protective qualities, mold resistance, and excellent moisture absorption and desorption. While academic research on hemp-based textiles in the US is increasing, it has naturally also become an area of interest to competing countries. Specifically, China is outperforming the US in hemp fiber technological advanceme ...
