  1. 28GHz-43GHz Nadir/Near-Nadir (~70-90 degrees wrt horizontal) Low Probability of Intercept Radio Frequency Direction Finding/GeoLocation Capability

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: N102118

    In this NAVY SBIR Phase I program, we propose a radio frequency (RF) direction finding sensor for low probability of intercept (LPI) RF radar system. This sensor consists of a dielectric fisheye lenses and an innovative focus plane detector array (FPDA). The fisheye lenses, as a RF antenna, have been broadly used in camera and electronic-optical systems (from visible to infrared wavelength). In th ...

  3. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    Under the DARPA sponsored Naval Advanced Amorphous Coating (NAAC) program, a novel, thermal sprayed amorphous metal coating has been developed. Such a coating has demonstrated superior mechanical and corrosion resistance properties. Although the coating is designed to be life-of-ship, the application and operational conditions may compromise the integrity of the coating. For example, the applicati ...

  4. A Market-Based Approach to Optimal Power Allocation in Electric Warships

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: N093189

    The proposed work will investigate the feasibility of a market-based power allocation method for shipboard power systems. These systems will encompass more loads demanding more power in order to meet the U.S. Navy’s current and future missions. As power is a scarce resource with alternative uses, the allocation of power within a shipboard power system is posed as an economic problem. As such, PC ...

  5. A Novel Automated and Controlled Dual Laser Ablation System for Selective Removal of Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF093120

    Thermal barrier coatings have been widely used to provide thermal protection to superalloy components in gas turbine engines. After certain amount of service time, the coating experiences a reduction in thickness by processes such as wear, erosion and foreign/domestic object damage. When the thickness decreases below a critical value, the thermal barrier effect provided by the coating is no longer ...

  6. A Novel Noninvasive Microwave Sensor for Quantitative Assessment of Degree of Sensitization in Marine Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N09T022

    In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the microwave cavity perturbation technique to detect and quantify DoS in marine aluminum alloys. We implemented an alpha version sensor prototype, characterized and validated its performance using ASTM G67 method. We also identified methods to further enhance the sensor sensitivity, so that DoS in the low (a few mg/cm2) to moderate range can be ...

  7. A Proactive Countermeasure to Harden Integrated Circuits Against Exploitation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD10IA1

    We propose to implement a novel countermeasure against the exploitation of integrated circuit hardware. The proposed countermeasure is applicable to both FPGAs and ASICs, increases design obfuscation and promises to block embedded hardware exploits. It also is fully compatible with virtually any other hardware exploit countermeasure and reduces forensic costs when exploits are suspected. The propo ...

  8. A Virtual Interface Simulation System for Battle Command Applications on Multi-Core and Cluster Architectures

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: A09041

    Distributed computing is used in a variety of fields and efficient data distribution among components is essential to the performance of such distributed systems. A new programming model that enables disparate software applications developed using a variety of different computer languages to share the required interface data while running concurrently on a cluster of multi-core computing nodes is ...

  9. ABL Smart Piping System for Containment and Control of Highly Corrosive and Hazardous Chemicals

    SBC: Odyssian Technology, L.L.C.            Topic: MDA03030

    During this program, multifunctional (smart) piping system technology will be developed for used on the Airborne Laser (ABL). This system, which was demonstrated in phase I, has a multifunctional design with integrated containment and leak detection functionality. The smart piping system design uses lightweight materials in conjunction with integrated sensors to achieve an advanced lightweight pi ...

  10. Accelerated Linear Algebra Solvers for Multi-Core GPU-Based Computing Architectures

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF09BT18

    Many large-scale numerical simulations can be broken down into common mathematical routines. While the applications may differ, they often need to perform standard functions such as system solves, Fourier transforms, or eigenvalue calculations. Consequently, producing fast, efficient implementations of these methods will benefit a broad range of Air Force applications. Graphics Processing Units (G ...
