  1. 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 ...

  2. Missile/UAV Dispense Interference Modeling


    The innovation proposed is the development of a high-fidelity software tool to be used for the design of hypersonic UAV dispense and subsequent dispense and dispersion of small hardened projectiles (SHAPs) from the UAVs using blast-based concepts. Such dispersed kinetic energy concepts can be effective against maneuverable and depressed trajectory threats for which conventional interceptors would ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. New and Improved Nonaqueous Electrolyte Components- Salts and Solvents

    SBC: COVALENT ASSOC., INC.            Topic: A06078

    A need exists to significantly improve the low temperature performance of lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries presently being developed for U.S. Army field applications. State-of-the-art Li-ion battery performance rapidly declines as the temperature falls below -20°C; yet high rate capability with useful battery capacity at temperatures as low as -40°C is required to meet warfighter requirements on ...

  5. Robotic Nursing Assistant (RNA)

    SBC: RE2, INC.            Topic: A07146

    Hospitals are currently facing significant staffing crises, especially a shortage of immediate care personnel such as nurses. As a result of this shortage, the number of work-related injuries continues to increase primarily due to more work shifts, mandatory overtime, the increasing patient weight, and the aging nursing population. To address this issue, this project proposes to develop and implem ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Warhead Adaptive Materials (WAM) for Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT)

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: A07065

    The U.S. Army, as well as other national military services, requires new and innovative energetic materials to produce next generation munitions. There exists a need for adaptable warheads that provide user-selectable energy output, as well as selectable modes of operation, such as fragmentation, penetration and blast. General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) will demonstrate the feasibility of applying energ ...

  8. Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW)


    A submarine immersed in seawater behaves like a short-circuited galvanic cell which, because of variations in resistance (as a function of propeller shaft angle) between the rotating propeller shaft and its bearings, may produce an electric current that is modulated at the shaft rate. Corrosion currents arise from differences in electrical potential among the interconnected dissimilar metals on t ...

  9. High Strength, High Modulus Nano-Composite Missile Structures (MSC P8024)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: A07024

    The use of lightweight, high strength carbon fiber reinforced composites in rocket motor cases has provided the ability to increase the propellant mass fraction, extend range and/or increase velocity for advanced tactical missile systems. While continuous fiber reinforced composites are being used for the motor case, relatively heavy metallic components are still employed for the case end closure ...

  10. Enhanced Stability and Penetration Depth of Deep Earth Penetrators

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA06009

    DTRA and other DoD agencies are currently seeking earth penetrators with higher efficiency for reaching deeply buried targets. Current penetrator materials and designs suffer from high levels of frictional drag, unbalanced resistance due to lateral forces and localized melting of the warhead leading to shape change and further instability. General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) has developed a method for en ...
