  1. Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: Epirus, Inc.            Topic: N19AT001

    Epirus presents a high powered microwave source that leverages ultra high power density solid state materials, called Leonidas, to meet all of the government’s objectives for the vehicle stop and vessel stop mission. The Leonidas unit has already achieved over 10 kW of effective radiated power (ERP) in laboratory tests using software definable solid state technology and we show how this scales t ...

  2. Conjugate heat transfer for LES of gas turbine engines

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19BT027

    Current design tools for gas turbine engines invoke a variety of simplifying assumptions to estimate heat transfer to solid/metal engine components (e.g., isothermal boundary conditions). These approximations are often not valid, result in inaccurate predictions of heat transfer, and ultimately compromise the thermal integrity of propulsion and power systems. Wall-modeled large eddy simulation (WM ...

  3. Data Science Techniques for Various Mission Planning Processes and Performance Validation

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N19BT029

    Mission and planning is a difficult and time-consuming process that places a heavy burden on manpower and critical thinking and is performed under significant pressure. Existing and emerging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques are well-suited to assisting humans with these challenges. While the promise of AI/ML is great, there are significant obstacles to operationali ...

  4. HIGH STRENGTH, WATER-FILLED CERAMIC NANOCOMPOSITE MICROCAPSULES WITH LOW PERMEABILITY FOR SELF-SEALING FUEL BLADDERS

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N19BT030

    During the proposed Navy STTR program, NanoSonic and Virginia Tech will design and synthesize innovative, high strength ceramic nanocomposite microcapsules filled with > 80 volume percent water that are empirically optimized to function as readily dispersed powdered additives with long-term water retention, durability during air craft bladder production, and rupture during ballistic shock. NanoSon ...

  5. Robust, Low Permeability, Water-Filled Microcapsules

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N19BT030

    The Navy is actively developing a self-sealing, water-activated fuel bladder to mitigate fuel leaks upon mechanical shock (e.g. penetration by a .50 caliber bullet). To circumvent the requirement of an external water source to activate the self-sealing, this system will require water-filled microcapsules that can be incorporated directly into the polymeric matrix of the fuel bladder. Upon mechanic ...

  6. Protocol Feature Identification and Removal

    SBC: P&J ROBINSON CORP            Topic: N18AT018

    Protocols used for communication suffer bloat from a variety of sources, such as support for legacy features or rarely used (and unnecessary) functionality. Traditionally, the Navy subscribes to a blanket adoption of a standard protocol "as is". Unnecessary features are active and can be accessed by both internal and external systems creating security vulnerabilities. PJR Corporation's (PJR's) Pha ...

  7. Analysis of Dislocation Density, Recrystallization, and Residual Stress in 5XXX Aluminum using Laser Peening to mitigate Exfoliation Corrosion

    SBC: HEPBURN AND SONS LLC            Topic: N18AT016

    Hepburn and Sons LLC teaming with The Ohio State University, Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis (CEMAS) propose to research and develop an innovative application of laser peening technology to mitigate exfoliation corrosion, a special type of inter-granular corrosion that occurs on the elongated grain boundaries. Strongly related, these Mg based alloys, when exposed to tensile stresses, c ...

  8. Homopolar AC Electric Machines for Naval Applications

    SBC: McCoy Consulting, LLC            Topic: N19AT007

    The objective of this proposed effort is to increase the power and torque density of rotating electric machinery for Naval applications by up to 50%. This aggressive goal will be achieved by developing the novel homopolar AC machine (HAM) topology. This relatively un-studied topology relies on solenoidal field and armature coils, making manufacturing simpler than traditional machines. The HAM elim ...

  9. Comprehensive Surf Zone Modeling Tool

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N19AT010

    Areté Associates, along with STTR partner Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), are proposing a comprehensive software capability for scene generation, object insertion, and performance modeling for passive and active EO COBRA sensors over the surf zone. The Surf Zone Modeling Tool (SZT) will incorporate several technologies, including: open-source and Areté-designed SZ ocean physics models, ...

  10. Quantum Cascade Laser Array with Integral Wavelength Beam Combining

    SBC: Mirios, Inc.            Topic: N19AT005

    Mirios Inc., in collaboration with UCSB and NRL, proposes to construct a high-brightness MWIR (~4.5-4.9 µm) light source, consisting of a single silicon chip with an array of Quantum Cascade Lasers which are fully-integrated with wavelength beam combiners.
