  1. Development of high-power near-UV semiconductor laser diodes

    SBC: Adroit Materials            Topic: N161005

    The overall objective of the proposed work is to demonstrate electrically pumped, high-efficiency and long-lifetime, near-UV, solid-state laser diodes (LDs) based on AlGaN MQWs grown on native, single crystalline GaN substrates. The targeted laser diodes will emit between 330 - 350 nm with an emission power exceeding 1 W. These lasers will find application in remote Raman spectroscopy applications ...

  2. Improved Skirt System for Air Cushion Vehicles

    SBC: Kubota Research Associates            Topic: N171042

    Both the Deep Skirt and Advanced Skirt System material used on Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) experience significant wear during normal operations, which require expensive, time-consuming maintenance repairs. The US Navy is looking for innovative new material and manufacturing method for skirt systems to improve it durability and reduces Total Ownership Cost (TOC). Rubber skirts experience two m ...

  3. Flight Head and Hearing Protection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N172120

    Upgrades to the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye inadvertently resulted in higher acoustic loading at its propellers blade pass frequency (BPF). This frequency overlaps with vibrational modes of the standard fixed-wing aircrew helmet, the HGU-68/P. As a combined result, E-2D pilots are experiencing exceptionally large vibrational and acoustic (noise) loading, potentially compromising aircrew performance and ...

  4. High Productivity Low Noise Abrasive Blast Nozzle

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N172134

    Navy vessels, along with other military, civil, and commercial equipment and structures, are routinely stripped by abrasive blasting in preparation for re-coating. Using existing nozzles, blasting generates continuous noise levels up to 145 dBA, and even with correctly worn double hearing protection, blasting operators are at risk of hearing damage. Noise induced hearing loss has become the most c ...

  5. MRI-Compatible Hyper/Hypobaric Chamber

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N101079

    Hyperbaric and hypobaric environments are known to have profound effects on the physiology of animals and humans.These effects can limit mission capabilities or, in some cases, even be life threatening.In other cases, these environments can induce very beneficial, sometimes life saving health effects.Even though the health effects of hypo/hyperbaric exposure have been observed for many decades, th ...

  6. Cognitive Software Algorithms Techniques for Electronic Warfare

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: N171044

    Vadum will develop a cognitive radar threat characterization (CRTC) system that employs a learning framework and algorithms to detect and counter agile, adaptive threat radars. Capabilities developed will provide improvements to threat detection, identification, and intent estimation to augment the SLQ-32 SEWIP Block 2 Electronic Support (ES) capabilities. CRTC will focus on the challenges of shor ...

  7. Active Acoustic Monitoring System (AAMS) for marine life and hazard detection through integration of the Subsurface-threat Detection Sonar Network bro

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N171065

    Scientific Solutions, Inc. (SSI), teamed with BAE Systems and Southall Environmental Associates, Inc. (SEA), proposes to investigate the feasibility of using commercially available active sonar to autonomously identify and track marine mammals from transiting SURTASS-LFA surface ships at ranges out to and beyond 2,000 yards. Active sonar has been proven effective to detect and track marine animals ...

  8. Plasma Gasification System for Waste-to-Energy Conversion

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N152097

    Responsible waste disposal has become an important challenge as the world population has grown, concern about the environment has increased, and energy costs have risen. Landfills are unsustainable and have potential to contaminate groundwater, while incineration consumes fuel and can produce hazardous airborne emissions. In response, we are developing a plasma gasification system that will enable ...

  9. Morphing-Duct and Twin Pumpjet Propulsion Concept Design

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N17AT019

    Existing 50-hp engines used on the Combat Rubber Raiding Craft (CRRC) do not provide the top speed, payload, and range characteristics necessary for missions requiring high speeds and low vibrations across a wide range of craft loads (e.g., light to heavy loading). Designing propulsors with high performance away from an optimum design point remains a difficult problem. Creare and our Research Inst ...

  10. Reduce Order Airwake Modeling for Aircraft/Ship Integration Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: N17AT005

    Corvid Technologies, in partnership with Duke University, is excited to offer a unique data compression solution for ship airwake datasets. Our teams approach will leverage well-established Reduced Order Model (ROM) methods, POD, Volterra, etc. The proposed approach will explore the efficacy of various ROM methods to achieve the overall goal of data reduction of factors of up to 1000. The goals of ...
