  1. Detection Rate Improvements Through Understanding and Modeling Ocean Variability-- 18-004

    SBC: Metron, Incorporated            Topic: N18AT002

    The transmission loss (TL) observed by sonar operators can differ significantly from that predicted by Navy models. The long-term objective of the proposed work is to understand why these differences occur and improve the target detection predictive capability of the models. Our approach in Phase I is to analyze bistatic sonar data collected on Navy assets. We will examine both cases with model/da ...

  2. Active Sonar Statistical Estimation Tool (ASSET)

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N18AT002

    As underwater threats continue to evolve, active sonar systems and operators must evolve with them, requiring improvements to sources, receivers, signal processing algorithms, and search mission planning applications in order to maintain and improve detection rates. Any improvements in the latter requires a detailed and accurate understanding of the acoustic underwater environment, and the underly ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Repurposing Computational Analyses of Tactics for Training Assessments

    SBC: Prevailance, Inc.            Topic: N18AT003

    Data generated by external sources needs to be consolidated and processed to derive new training scenarios and to recommend new training objectives and measures of performance. The main technical challenges this solution will address are: data from diverse sources must be pre-processed (i.e., validated, cleaned, synchronized) and loaded into a data warehouse; the central data warehouse must have a ...

  5. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...

  8. Non-Destructive Concrete Interrogator and Strength of Materials Correlator

    SBC: Karagozian & Case, Inc.            Topic: N18AT006

    Karagozian & Case Inc. and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Civil Engineering are proposing a Phase I STTR to develop a non-invasive and non-destructive methodology capable of measuring concrete material properties, including relevant spatial and statistical information associated with them, for input to hydrocode models. The solution will be both laboratory and field deployable, w ...

  9. Detect and Avoid Certification Environment for Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: Near Earth Autonomy, Inc.            Topic: N18AT007

    Certification of Detect and Avoid (DAA) systems is challenging because the state space of these systems is large and the modeling of other aircraft, ownership, operator dynamics, and sensors is complex and time consuming. Furthermore, to be able to achieve sufficient evidence for certification, a strong argument for their safety has to be determined. In Phase I we expect to demonstrate the feasibi ...

  10. Additive Manufacturing for Naval Aviation Battery Applications

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N18AT008

    Storagenergy Technologies Inc. proposes to develop an all solid-state battery (ASSB) which can be made by a high-speed AMtechnology.
