  2. Development of Adaptive Vorticity Confinement Based CFD Methodology for Rotorcraft Applications

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: N132092

    The accurate representation of the rotor wake, especially the tip vortex structure, in a computationally efficient and algorithmically straight forward way is crucial for prediction of rotor aerodynamic performance, noise emission, and rotor structural dynamics. A promising approach for design and optimization is the vorticity confinement (VC) method that minimizes the numerical diffusion of vorti ...

  3. Modular Sonar Identification System (MoSIS)

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: N132119

    We propose to develop a Modular Sonar Identification System (MoSIS) (Figure 1). MoSIS will be designed to integrate with the PMS-485 Shallow Water Surveillance System (SWSS). MoSIS will be designed to provide low Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) capabilities for advanced sonar signal processing. MoSIS will also offer easy development for integration of new algorithms, a modular approach that allows ...

  4. Near-Net Shape Lightweight Titanium Wheeled Hubs

    SBC: Summit Materials, LLC            Topic: N133147

    The objective of the proposed program is to use advance manufacturing processes, to form near-net shaped (NNS) titanium wheeled hubs for tactical vehicles. Three manufacturing routes will be investigated including casting and two powder metallurgy processes based on Summit Materials Shaped Hot Isostatic Pressed Process (SHIP2). Physical work will be accompanied by numerical analysis of both the ma ...

  6. Advanced Finned-tube Heat Exchanger with an Integrated Phase Distributor

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N141068

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) proposes the development of an advanced finned-tube heat exchanger with an integrated phase distributor. Studies have shown that the heat transfer improvements available in the commercial market allow for smaller and lighter heat exchangers compared to conventional heat exchangers. In addition, as these heat exchangers use straight fins, they provide excel ...

  7. Attention-Based Vision for Autonomous Vehicles

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: N141076

    Humans are continually subjected to an overwhelming stream of visual, auditory, olfactory, and touch stimuli. We operate effectively because we are capable of focusing attention on the relevant items, and capable of accurately perceiving tiny discrepancies that are most relevant to our survival while ignoring broad swaths of superfluous data. Our ability to quickly key in on the most relevant sens ...

  8. Low-Light, Low Cost Passive Terrain Sensing

    SBC: Near Earth Autonomy, Inc.            Topic: N141077

    Helicopter flight in support of military operations is often conducted at night under low light conditions, where loss of situational awareness can lead to accidents such as controlled flight into terrain (CFIT). Current terrain sensing systems used to aid pilots in maintaining situational awareness use active sensors, such as millimeter-wave radar and flash or scanning ladar, but active sensors p ...

  9. Increasing the Specific Power of Epitaxial Lift-Off Solar Cells for Cost-Effective, High-Efficiency, Flexible Photovoltaics

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: OSD13EP3

    MicroLink Devices has developed, and is currently producing, thin epitaxial lift-off inverted metamorphic solar cells for flexible solar sheets using a four-inch GaAs wafer platform. These cells have been demonstrated in a variety of applications including panels attached to Marines"backpacks and the wings of Raven and Puma unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Although good system performance has su ...

  10. Novel CO2 Gas Sensors for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 82

    The objective of the proposed work is to determine whether Dioxide Materials' miniature C02 sensors have the potential to be adapted for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. The existing sensors have many advantages for measurements of ocean carbon. They are much smaller and less costly than the existing sensors, work with much smaller gas samples, and use much less power. The sensors were d ...
