  1. Aerostat Communications Relay from Unmanned Surface Vehicle

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: N131039

    The CommLift Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is an alternate and novel approach to providing long range, over-the-horizon, communications for surface vessels; it uses a tethered electric UAV to carry a radio payload to suitable altitude, rather than an aerostat. The tether provides power from an unmanned surface vessel (USV) to the UAV and also bi-directional com ...

  2. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Microwave Sensor for the Detection and Evaluation of Incipient Composite Heat Damage

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N131013

    Due to their high specific strength and light weight properties, polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are increasingly used in a wide variety of military and civilian aircrafts. The mechanical strength of PMCs can be dramatically compromised when such materials are exposed to various heat sources during operation and maintenance. It has been shown that PMCs can lose up to 80% of their mechanical stren ...

  3. Optimally Integrate Automated Ship and Small Craft Classification Functions with the Maritime Tactical Picture Tools

    SBC: LAMBDA SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N111030

    Surface vessel detection and classification from airborne platforms relies heavily on radar at operationally useful stand off ranges. Upon detection the radar search waveform may be used to accrue additional information about the surface contact for classification but confidence is likely to be insufficient. Improved classification confidence can be gained by follow-on contact interrogation with h ...

  4. Environmental Wideband Acoustic Receiver and Source (EWARS)

    SBC: RDA INC.            Topic: N101042

    The U.S. Navy requires a new Environmental Wideband Acoustic Receiver and Source (EWARS) sensor to facilitate the gathering of environmental data from Navy ASW platforms. The newly developed EWARS sensor will deployable in shallow and deep environments, and be capable of operating over a broad spectrum of frequencies. EWARS will also provide calibration accuracy, digital uplink format/precision, a ...

  5. Modular Sonar Identification System (MoSIS)

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: N132119

    Systems, LLC proposes to develop a hardware and software capabilities for Pre-Processing Logic (SPP) and Main Processor (SMP) for the sonar signal processing. Our approach includes a broad range of power saving measures in software and hardware to greatly improve power/performance ratio over the current baseline system. Our approach was validated in Phase I by demonstrating a potential 30x gain in ...

  6. Low Noise Torpedo Power Supply

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: N131032

    QorTek and Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Sensors (LM MS2) are together proposing a new low noise integrated converter architecture that would significantly improve both low frequency noise rejection and the high frequency switching noise content and still fit within the confines of the design envelope. As the prime contractor for the MK48 CBASS torpedoMS2 is uniquely positioned to work with ...

  7. Whimbrel Unmanned Aircraft System-Borne Atmospheric and Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Sensor

    SBC: Piasecki Aircraft Corporation            Topic: 845RWP

    Piasecki Aircraft (PiAC) proposes to continue development and testing efforts of the Whimbrel UAS, a low cost, expendable, air-deployed weather survey unmanned aircraft system. The Whimbrel UAS, a low cost, expendable, air-deployed weather survey unmanned aircraft system. The Whimbrel USA has been developed to support the Tropical Cyclone Boundary Layer mission requirements and contains sensors an ...

  9. Enhanced Small-Target Detection and Tracking Using a Mode-Adaptive Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) Detector

    SBC: LAMBDA SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N141020

    The proposed Phase 2 technical effort will leverage the success of the Phase 1 effort and develop adaptive clutter equalization CFAR (ACE-CFAR) techniques that are mode adaptive at the PRI level and handle multiple range resolutions. Conventional CFAR detection processing has difficulty in heterogeneous clutter (i.e., maritime clutter) because the fixed data size windowing is not likely to be well ...

  10. Ultra Sharp Fiber Architectures for Ceramic Composites

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: N142119

    Future hypersonic vehicles will be required to fly extended, long term trajectories where the bodies must exhibit high lift-to-drag (L/D) ratios. The need for reduced drag means that the nosetips and leading edges must have small radii, shallow wedge angles, and be erosion resistant. Desirable dimensions include a nose radius on the order of 0.040 inch and a wedge half angle of about 3. This radiu ...
