  1. Tailoring Training for Disparately Skilled Participants in Large Scale Training Exercises

    SBC: ADVANCED INFONEERING, INC.            Topic: N09T007

    The SKATE concept was designed to quantify skill levels of trainees, teams, or units, generate skill-appropriate training scenarios, and provide a continuous skill-level assessment of disparately skilled trainees, teams, and units in a joint training exercise while maintaining the overall integrity and realism of the mission itself. SKATE evaluates the skill level of an individual, teams, or unit ...

  2. Array Processing Techniques for III-V Material, Strained Layer Superlattice, Mid and Long Wavelength, High Sensitivity Infrared (IR) Sensors

    SBC: ASL Analytical, Inc.            Topic: A09080

    This proposal describes an approach to realize InAs/GaSb type II superlattice focal plane arrays through planar processing. A problem with conventional mesa diode processing approaches is that nonradiative surface recombination at the exposed pn junction is extremely rapid, leading to surface leakage currents that limit the mesa diode performance. By eliminating etched sidewalls through planar p ...

  3. Laser Beacon for Identification, Friend or Foe (IFF) and Combat Identification

    SBC: Diffraction, Ltd            Topic: AF093100

    The proposed multi-spectral IFF beacon will use 40 to 50 % effient high power laser diodes at 863, 1064, and 1550 nm wavelengths. Thermal emitters including diamond-like carbon thin films, photonic crystals, and quantum cascade lasers will be characterized and compared. Finally a model to predict the detection range of IFF beacons will be developed using proprietary emitter power and atmospheric ...

  5. Development of Magnetostrictive Energy Harvesting of Mechanical Vibration Energy

    SBC: Etrema Products, Inc.            Topic: N10AT020

    Energy harvesting devices utilizing magnetostrictive materials are a logical choice for harvesting the high impedance (high force, low displacement) vibrations found aboard Navy ships. Force-based devices, enabled by magnetostrictive materials, can harvest energy over an extremely large bandwidth, approximately ±35 and ±70 Hz currently, making them more desirable in situations aboard Navy ships ...

  6. Energy Rejection System for Very High Altitude Aircraft

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB082063

    Mezzo fabricates high performance micro tube heat exchangers. In this proposal, extremely light weight versions of these heat exchangers made from polymers will be examined for use on high altitude unmanned air vehicles (UAVs). The anticipated weight of these heat exchangers is expected to be less than 25% that of a conventional (i.e. plate-fin) heat exchanger.

  7. Air Flow Noise Reduction Techniques

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N07163

    The objective of this program is to develop techniques to reduce engine cooling system noise levels of the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV). Mezzo’s approach is to redesign the engine cooling heat exchangers (LTC, HTC, fuel cooler, and condenser) using Mezzo’s heat exchanger technology to reduce the overall heat exchanger pressure drop and thus the demands on the cooling fans. Reduced pres ...

  8. Improved Thermal Management Systems using Plastic

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A08153

    Mezzo fabricates high performance micro tube heat exchangers. In the Phase I program, Mezzo explored substituting the stainless steel micro tubes that typically have been used with polymer micro tubes. Polymer micro tube heat exchangers have significant potential advantages over currently used metal plate-fin heat exchanger technologies. Specifically, polymer micro tube heat exchangers provide ext ...

  10. Scalable, Energy Harvesting, Wireless Sensor Network for Structural Health Monitoring of Ships

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N101095

    Structural health monitoring (SHM) of large structures such as Navy ships requires an in depth knowledge of operational loads and how these loads may change over time. A network of low cost, wireless strain sensors can provide this information. During Phase I, we will demonstrate a highly synchronized, scalable network of energy harvesting wireless strain sensors. By converting ambient cyclic stra ...
