  1. Ultra Sharp Fiber Architectures for Ceramic Composites

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: N142119

    Future hypersonic vehicles will be required to fly extended, long term trajectories where the bodies must exhibit high lift-to-drag (L/D) ratios. The need for reduced drag means that the nosetips and leading edges must have small radii, shallow wedge angles, and be erosion resistant. Desirable dimensions include a nose radius on the order of 0.040 inch and a wedge half angle of about 3. This radiu ...

  2. A Multi-Tiered Lithium-Ion Battery Thermal Fault Mitigation Architecture

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N14AT006

    With the continued electrification of military systems, lithium-ion (Li ion) batteries are increasingly targeted for electrical energy storage due to exceptional energy and power density. However, Li ion batteries operating in hostile thermal and mechanical environments typical of military aircraft are prone to catastrophic thermally-induced failures. Hazards including loss of power, fire, and exp ...

  3. Persistent Maritime Target Tracking Using Automated Target Fingerprinting and Discrimination

    SBC: LAMBDA SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N141016

    The proposed Phase 2 technical effort will leverage the success of the Phase 1 effort and develop and extensively test robust signal processing techniques that consistently extract target features over a large range of operating conditions using recently collected radar data from a Navy field test. The measurement of target length, number of masts, and mast position are among the most basic and de ...

  4. Enhanced Small-Target Detection and Tracking Using a Mode-Adaptive Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) Detector

    SBC: LAMBDA SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N141020

    The proposed Phase 2 technical effort will leverage the success of the Phase 1 effort and develop adaptive clutter equalization CFAR (ACE-CFAR) techniques that are mode adaptive at the PRI level and handle multiple range resolutions. Conventional CFAR detection processing has difficulty in heterogeneous clutter (i.e., maritime clutter) because the fixed data size windowing is not likely to be well ...

  5. A Nanophosphate Lithium-ion Chemistry Source for Crossover Power Sources

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N121067

    The MK-48 torpedo requires a temporary crossover power supply until main engine activation and alternator power becomes available. Due to the high cost and poor availability of presently used thermal batteries, a suitable replacement power source using innovative energy storage concepts is desired. Creare proposes to develop an innovative high density power source based on a nanophosphate lithium- ...

  6. Modular Sonar Identification System (MoSIS)

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: N132119

    Systems, LLC proposes to develop a hardware and software capabilities for Pre-Processing Logic (SPP) and Main Processor (SMP) for the sonar signal processing. Our approach includes a broad range of power saving measures in software and hardware to greatly improve power/performance ratio over the current baseline system. Our approach was validated in Phase I by demonstrating a potential 30x gain in ...

  7. Environmental Wideband Acoustic Receiver and Source (EWARS)

    SBC: RDA Inc.            Topic: N101042

    The U.S. Navy requires a new Environmental Wideband Acoustic Receiver and Source (EWARS) sensor to facilitate the gathering of environmental data from Navy ASW platforms. The newly developed EWARS sensor will deployable in shallow and deep environments, and be capable of operating over a broad spectrum of frequencies. EWARS will also provide calibration accuracy, digital uplink format/precision, a ...

  8. Optimally Integrate Automated Ship and Small Craft Classification Functions with the Maritime Tactical Picture Tools

    SBC: LAMBDA SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N111030

    Surface vessel detection and classification from airborne platforms relies heavily on radar at operationally useful stand off ranges. Upon detection the radar search waveform may be used to accrue additional information about the surface contact for classification but confidence is likely to be insufficient. Improved classification confidence can be gained by follow-on contact interrogation with h ...

    SBC: H6 Systems Inc.            Topic: N122127

    H6 Systems proposes building a transmitter based on a modified coupled cavity TWT from CPI to increase coverage of MIL-STD-464C. Present testing methods are lacking in the coverage of power for frequencies from 3.0 3.3 GHz. The new transmitter will allow testing at both peak and average powers and will fill requirements for fields shipboard not in the main beam.

  10. Development of Atomistically-Informed Peridynamics Framework for Corrosion Fatigue Damage Prediction

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N13AT007

    Corrosive environments together with cyclic loading can lead to the formation of localized corrosion pits and corrosion fatigue cracks which can significantly deteriorate the structural integrity of aircraft components. The exact nature of corrosion fatigue damage is dependent on the competing multi-scale processes resulting from complex interactions between the structural material, its environmen ...
