  2. Advanced Electromagnetic Modeling with High Geometric Fidelity Using High-Order Curved Elements

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: N20BT028

    Virtual EM is proposing a method to achieve orders of magnitude improvement in computational efficiency in full-wave CEM codes by using high-order curved elements. Virtual EM’s own commercial product VirAntenn™ will provide the CEM setting for both developing and implementing the new capability in Phase I and Phase II, respectively. Using multi-wavelength long cells with high-order basis forms ...

  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. PARTEL: Periscope video Analysis using Reinforcement and TransfEr Learning

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: N20AT007

    We propose a suite of video processing algorithms utilizing the machine learning (ML) techniques of artificial intelligence (AI) reinforcement learning, deep learning, and transfer learning to process submarine imagery obtained by means of periscope cameras. Machine learning (ML) can help in addressing the challenge of human failure of assessing the data of periscope imagery. Though pre-tuned blac ...

  8. Frequency and Phase Locking of Magnetrons Using Varactor Diodes

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: N20AT015

    Magnetrons are compact, inexpensive, and highly efficient sources of RF power used in many industrial and commercial applications. For most of these applications, the requirement is for RF power without regard to precise frequency or phase control, and noise riding on the RF signal is not important. For many accelerator, defense, and communications applications, however, these characteristics prev ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. TIS: Trusted Sensor Integration

    SBC: Objectsecurity LLC            Topic: N20AT011

    Condition-based maintenance plus (CBM+), and cyber-physical systems (CPS) in general, depend on correct sensor data for analysis, decision making and control loops. If the sensor data that arrives at the point of processing is not correct, or more accurate, is outside its accepted error range, then any further processing will be incorrect as well. This could result in, in the case of CBM+, not det ...
