  1. High Quantum Efficiency Fast Detectors for the Readout of Scintillators for Gamma Ray Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: HSB062007

    Agiltron proposes to demonstrate a breakthrough detector for readout of scintillators for gamma ray detection that overcomes the quantum efficiency and high voltage limits of current PMTs and APDs. It holds the promise to improve the current scintillator detector resolution by at least 30 percent without the need for a high voltage power supply, and can be fabricated at a low cost. This new photom ...

  3. Lithium-Air / Lithium-Ion Hybrid Battery for Military Use

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: A06091

    This SBIR Phase I effort will be to construct and evaluate a high specific energy and high power lithium-air/ lithium-ion hybrid battery system. One of the challenges of incorporating metal-air batteries into existing equipment is the power requirements. Metal-air systems are typically very high in energy density but low in power. A method to overcome the power issue to is to use a hybrid battery ...

  4. ACTOR: Automated Collateral Tactics for OPFOR Responses

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A06210

    A key challenge for battlefield simulation is the estimation of enemy courses of action (COAs). Current adversarial COA development is a manual time-consuming process prone to errors due to limited knowledge about the adversary and its ability to adapt. Development of decision aids that can predict adversary’s intent and range of possible behaviors, as well as automation of such technologies wit ...

  5. Motor Insulation Material Development for Improved Power Density

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N06142

    Insulation systems for large, Brushless DC propulsion motors typically use Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) power converters with high frequency (>10KHz), high voltage switching for efficiency and control benefits but this places significant demands on the insulation system. Switching frequency, peak voltage amplitude and voltage rate of change (dv/dt) are key factors in the degradation of insulation ...

  6. Application of Fault Current Detection and Limiting Technology on Electrical Distribution Systems for Naval Ships


    AMSC proposes to develop concepts and key components for the first militarily viable and commercializable Fault Current Limiter (FCL). This will utilize the 2nd generation High Temperature Superconductor (HTS) wire (YBCO Coated Conductor Technology) becoming commercially available now. Recent advances in the development of all electric ships for the U.S. Navy indicate that the total power requir ...

  7. Pier-Side, Bow Sonar Calibration Methodology for Wave Piercing Hull Forms

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N06139

    The DD(X) destroyer relies on sophisticated, dual frequency bow sonar for mine-avoidance, ASW, and torpedo defense. Existing approaches to in situ bow sonar calibration that use booms to extend hydrophones beyond the sonar, along with legacy nearfield-to-farfield projection algorithms, will not work for DD(X) due to the ship’s strict radar cross section requirement and unique hull and sonar arr ...

  8. Dynamic Compensation System for Towed Bodies

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N06137

    The use of unmanned surface vessels (USV) towing underwater sensors will be part of the Littoral Combat Ship concept of operations for mine, anti-submarine, and anti-surface ship warfare. However, the wave-induced motions of the USV may degrade or limit sensor performance unless measures are taken to decouple the tow body motions from the USV motions. Given limitations on available USV power and ...

  9. E-tongue Sensor Array For Shipyard Water Monitoring

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N06133

    Navy program office is seeking capability to monitor known pollutants in shipyard waste water discharges to comply with local environmental discharge limits. The pollutants of concern are heavy metal ions but petroleum hydrocarbons and semi volatile organics are also of interest. The monitoring system should be lightweight (hand held), low power, reliable, low maintenance, affordable, and very r ...

  10. Magnetic Imaging And Current Mapping For NDE Of Aluminum Components On Ships

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N06132

    New technology is needed for nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of defects in aluminum structures on ships. Fatigue cracks at weldments where defects may be hidden under paints, rough surfaces and other materials are especially problematic. An NDE technology capable of imaging defects in welds under a variety of surface conditions would be ideal. Existing NDE technologies such as visible imaging, x-r ...
