  1. Wave Energy Harvesting to Power Unmanned Surface Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N05T021

    Recent world events have highlighted the need for timely and accurate intelligence data to assess threats and combat terror. An unmanned surface vehicle (USV ) can potentially perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, provide force protection, hunt for mines in coastal waters or harbors, and provide port security. USVs under development by the Navy are powered by the ...

  2. An Integratable Ultra-Compact Optical Sensor System for Situation Awareness and Aircraft Self-Protection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N05027

    The proposal addresses a new class of large field of view panoramic two color + RF sensor system that is based on a revolutionary concept in sensing optics, potentially providing all weather, all aspect, multi spectral threat warning system. The new design is a practical solution to incorporate uncooled IR detector and UV detector with existing RF warning sensors to significantly enhance situatio ...

  3. Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) of Small-Diameter Titanium Tubing

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N05007

    New technology is needed for the nondestructive inspection (NDI) of microscopic defects in the thin-wall, titanium alloy hydraulic lines used on aircraft. Once mounted on an aircraft, these tubes are difficult to access externally, making inspection of the tube from the inside the most practical method for NDI. The Navy has identified a specific need for the NDI of titanium tubing with diameters r ...

  4. Hydrogen Separation from a Logistic-Fuel Reformate Stream

    SBC: ANALYTIC POWER LLC            Topic: N05040

    Despite fifteen years of R&D, PEM fuel cell power plants have not been successfully deployed on naval vessels. The principal cause is the fuel processor, which must operate on diesel fuel with up to 1wt% sulfur, but provide pure hydrogen to a PEM fuel cell that is intolerant of impurities. The fuel processors must be small, efficient and inexpensive. These have been the Navy goals for as long a ...

  5. Novel 2G conductor Design for AC Applications


    Second Generation High Temperature Superconductor (2G) wire is providing new capabilities critical for various military applications. The enhanced flux pinning at 65K, the lower limit for liquid nitrogen cooling, is useful for achieving useful power densities at magnetic fields of 1-3 T. For the use of 2G wires for AC applications substantial modifications are required to the present 2G wire arch ...

  6. Lightweight Power Transformer for Shipboard Electrical Power Distribution Systems


    A topology for a medium voltage to low voltage 3-phase power converter is proposed. It consists of a clean power rectifier followed by multiple isolated DC to DC converters using commercially available high frequency transformers with very low core losses when driven by a quasi-resonant inverter operating in the 20 to 50 kHz range. The DC to DC input DC busses are placed in series, while the out ...

  7. Fast Propagation Modeling for Multi-static Sonars

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N05044

    The US Navy's new DD(X) destroyer, currently under design, is expected to serve not only as an independent battlespace resource but also as a hub of a network of environmental sensors and sonar platforms. In this role, the DD(X) crew is responsible for deciding the distribution of assets needed to best accomplish the objectives of the current mission. Due to the environmental sensitivity of mult ...

  8. Vector Hydrophone Torpedo Defense Array

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N05T030

    An advanced vector hydrophone towed array is proposed for surface ship torpedo defense applications. Vector hydrophone promise to provide much-needed array gain in aperture-constrained systems. The additional gain results in significant increases in detection ranges and/or decreases in false alarm rates. A physics-based vector sensor array simulator will be developed in a modular architecture. ...

  9. Low Drag, Underwater Acoustic Source for Sea Surface-based Mine Sweeping

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N05T029

    A critical design feature for a towed mine countermeasure platform is low drag. In this STTR we propose to integrate an efficient acoustic source within a low drag body to perform influence mine sweeps behind an unmanned surface vehicle. To develop the optimum system a trade-study is proposed during Phase I to examine electronically-powered transducers and novel hydroacoustic concepts. The tran ...

  10. Data Integration for Validation of Effectiveness of Systems-(DIVES)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N05064

    The U.S. Navy is taking advantage of the revolution in information technology to support rapid evolution of its command and control systems. Along with the ability to rapidly reconfigure displays and controls, however, comes the need to rigorously evaluate the effectiveness of new human-machine interface designs. For submarine combat systems, the introduction of new Combat Control displays has the ...
