  1. An Effective and Durable Icephobic Coating for Turbomachinery Inlet Components

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N182115

    Creare proposes to develop novel icephobic coatings for F-35 turbomachinery inlet components. Our baseline approach explores the use of two easily applied silicone-based coating technologies specifically engineered for challenging lift fan and engine compressor geometries. Our integration leverages Creares decades of advances in turbomachinery development with the advanced aerospace coating expert ...

  2. A Wireless Hydration Monitor for Naval Aircrew

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N182114

    Naval aircrews face a difficult balancing act. Hydration is important to performance; however, relieving oneself in flight can often be a challenge. Operational observations suggest that aircrew may limit their fluid intake leading up to and during flights. Whether intentional or not, when combined with increasing mission lengths, heavy flight gear, and the low humidity environment, they may place ...

  3. Advanced Battlefield Communications System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N182133

    Hearing is critical to the warfighter: threats must be heard, identified, and localized; a squad leaders commands must be heard and interpreted. All of this is challenged by battlefield noise, whether from continuous noise from ones vehicle or impulsive noise from incoming or outgoing fire. ONR seeks new advances in battlefield tactical communications technology. Creare proposes to develop a hardw ...

  4. Seamless Knitting for Military Protective Clothing

    SBC: PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES SERVICES, INC            Topic: N182124

    Recent developments in machinery and flame-resistant (FR) yarn blends provide an opportunity to improve Sailor comfort, reduce heat stress, and maintain protection while reducing manufacturing lead-times, costs, and waste by utilizing novel seamless knitting technologies. The proposed effort will evaluate the feasibility of using 3D knitting with FR yarns and analyze the strengths and weaknesses o ...

  5. Compact Radio Frequency-to-Optical Transmitter for Airborne Military Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N191006

    In this SBIR effort we will develop an ultra-compact, high-speed, low RIN and high-power transmitter for high-performance RF photonic link applications based on our cutting-edge lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulator. In phase I, we will design, fabricate and characterize a low Vp, push-and-pull LNOI modulator. We will study the optical couplings at the laser/modulator/fiber interfaces to a ...

  6. Shipboard Dimensional Analysis Tool (SDAT)

    SBC: DESIGN MILL, INC.            Topic: N172101

    Shipboard Dimensional Analysis Tool (SDAT) will enable transportability assessments of candidate vehicle designs aboard Naval ships prior to prototyping. SDAT will integrate three-dimensional (3D) ship and vehicle data, enable users to place and visualize vehicles and their path within ship vehicle stowage spaces and on ramps, enable collision detection based on a user-defined clearance, assess ph ...

  7. Image Enhancement and Machine Learning for Improving Man-Portable Targeting Systems

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N172102

    Modern DoD applications are benefiting from the proliferation of EO/IR sensor technology. As imagers become cheaper and smaller, they are being more widely deployed for a variety of scenarios. This trend is exemplified by the Navys Future Targeting System (FTS), which will provide laser designation, laser spot imaging, and some target location functions in a single 5.5-pound unit, replacing discre ...

  8. A High Water Speed Sled for Amphibious Vehicles

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N172133

    To facilitate amphibious assault operations, the Marines need to quickly move amphibious combat vehicles (ACVs) between ships and the shore. However, due to an increased level of sophistication in the anti-ship weapons available to potential adversaries, Navy ships must remain far from shore during assault operations (i.e., many tens of miles). This creates a need for assault vehicles that can ach ...

  9. A Novel Thermal Management System for MIDS JTRS Terminals

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N172137

    The Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) Joint Tactical Radio (JTRS) is a four-channel, software-programmable radio having up to eight Shop Replaceable Units (SRUs) that determine the functionality of the unit. The SRUs consist of electronics cards mounted in a sealed structure and secured in the chassis using standard wedge locks. Currently, the available heat rejection from the ...

  10. Two-Dimensional Surface Emitting Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) Interband Cascade Laser Arrays for High-Power Applications

    SBC: Firefly Photonics, LLC            Topic: N181016

    We propose achieving high power mid-infrared arrays with interband cascade vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSEL). Unlike quantum cascade lasers, optical selection rules in interband cascade lasers allow vertical emission. The massive parallelism of a VCSEL array will allow small, low power lasers to achieve high total output power with no speckle due to spatial incoherence across the arr ...
