  1. A Common, Low-Cost HF Submarine Sonar Projector

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N07066

    TRS Technologies, Inc. and Nothrop Grumman Undersea Systems (NGUS) propose to develop and test a single crystal sonar array that adds transmit capability to the currently proposed receive array for the Virginia-class submarine. The goal of this program will be to adapt the added capability to the current form factor, thereby getting maximum return for minimal modifications and interface changes. B ...

  2. Single Crystal 1-3 Composite Projectors for MCM Applications

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N07076

    TRS Technologies and the Applied Research Laboratory at Penn State propose to build on high frequency (>100 kHz) single crystal, 1-3 composite projector work developed in the Phase I program for sonar in unmanned vehicles. The high bandwidth exhibited by the composite, and potential for increased source level could greatly improve data collection, while limiting impact on vehicle volume. In the Ph ...

  3. Cost-Effective Fabrication of Piezoelectric Single Crystals Device Elements

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N06083

    For this Phase II effort TRS Technologies, Inc., in collaboration with Rochester University, the Pennsylvania State University Electro-Optics Center and Penn State Applied Research Laboratory, will develop manufacturing processes to fabricate single crystal piezoelectric components with Zero Surface Defects (ZSD). During Phase I we showed that such crystals have 3 times the mechanical strength of ...

  4. Submarine Launched Acoustic Communication Buoy using Single Crystal Sonar

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N07076

    For this Phase II SBIR program, TRS Technologies and Ultra Electronics Ocean Systems (UEOS) will team to design, build and test a buoy system for acoustic communications. Segmented single crystal rings for a 3" form factor will be made to provide a wide bandwidth for operation at two distinct frequency bands. TRS and UEOS will also team with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute to integrate the ...

  5. Energetic Secondary Fuel Injection for Propulsion System Performance Improvement


    A joint analytical/experimental program to develop technologies to improve thermal output from combustors in propulsion systems while ensuring their stable operation is proposed. The program will exploit the use of energetic materials as secondary fuels to be injected suitably into the combustors to both increase their thermal output and ensure the mitigation of any instability that may arise in t ...

  6. Network Monitoring and Management System (NMMS)


    In Phase II, Daniel H. Wagner Associates will build the full-scale prototype NMMS and evaluate it using both simulated and real-world sensor data.We will use this Phase II system to further develop effective information flow optimization techniques in support of LCS ASW operations, and in support of transitioning these innovative NMMS technologies into other operational Navy systems.We will also d ...

  7. Fiber Reinforced Composite Hull and Topside Structures for Air Cushioned Vehicles (MSC P8035)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: N07056

    The current aluminum hull and topside structure on LCAC are prone to corrosion and erosion due to the harsh salt-laden marine environment in which they operate. Improving durability, corrosion resistance, acoustic insulation and life cycle cost of the air cushioned vehicle (ACV) structure at minimum weight is paramount to achieving operational goals of future platforms such as the Joint Maritime A ...

  8. Thermostructural Behavior of Polymer and Ceramic Matrix Composites Under Extreme Short Term Thermal Loads

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: N06052

    Future supersonic missiles can be improved through the use of polymer matrix composites (PMCs) for structural airframes. However the severe aerodynamic heating conditions will expose the structure to short term temperatures and stresses that are beyond those typically seen by these materials. Nevertheless because the airframes are required to survive these conditions for very short times, it may ...

  9. Signal Processing For Dense Fields Of Miniature Impulsive Sources And Sonobuoy Receivers

    SBC: RDA INC.            Topic: N06042

    The Navy requires a new modular signal processing architecture to host various candidate algorithms in support of the dense field of miniature sonobuoy concept. The dense field concept is in direct support of the N88 Air ASW Vision Statement which states that “continued pursuit of the miniaturization of sonobuoys, including the EER sources and receivers, is important for overcoming load restric ...

  10. Dexterous Manipulation System for Small Robots

    SBC: RE2, INC.            Topic: N06162

    RE2 is proposing to build a Dexterous Manipulation System payload that will directly address the inability of most small ground robots to perform fine and/or complex manipulation tasks. The DMS payload combines a highly maneuverable manipulator arm with advanced feedback and intuitive software control methods to provide a complete package that not only increases the base capabilities of platforms ...
