  1. C2 Interactive and Context-Aware Digital Assistant (CICADA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N162074

    Marine Corps Commanders are responsible for consuming, understanding, and acting upon vast amounts of operational data. However, current Command and Control (C2) systems overwhelm Commanders by presenting this data in too much detail, and they lack intuitive interfaces for exploring and querying the data. The resulting cognitive overload and inefficiency increases the risk that Commanders will ove ...

  2. Low SWAP FOG IPADS system

    SBC: Infibertech, Corp,            Topic: N162076

    We suggest developing a miniaturized survey system which can meet the current IPADS requirements with significant reductions in size/weight. The current weight/volume is 135 lb./6300 inch-cube. The core is Navigational Module (INS) that weighs >50 lb. and volume of 1200 inch-cube, based on Ring Laser Gyro technology. The main goal of the study is a replacement of the above sensor cluster with a ne ...

  3. Adaptive Hull Structure

    SBC: Navatek LLC            Topic: N162078

    The single biggest technical challenge in developing an amphibious vehicle with the required speed and range is this: the hull shape required for an effective land-mobile armored fighting vehicle produces too much hydrodynamic drag and too little buoyancy to achieve the speed and endurance required to support an over-the-horizon amphibious assault. However, innovative adaptive hull devices compris ...

  4. Innovative Expeditionary Medical Refrigeration Unit

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N162081

    Triton Systems and its team members propose to develop an innovative, energy efficient, small human transportable field refrigeration unit for field medical operations. The unit will be used to keep temperature sensitive human blood products, vaccines, and reagents within an optimum temperature range to ensure long term viability.

  5. SiC-Based High Voltage Capacitor Charging Innovations

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N162119

    Under this SBIR, Diversified Technologies, Inc. (DTI) will build on its proven EMRG Compact Power Converter design (N113-181), incorporating advanced power devices to take advantage of their improved wide bandgap performance, and allowing continuous duty-cycle operation. Front-end conditioning and switching arrangements will be developed to accommodate various input voltages including 650-1100 VDC ...

  6. Multi-analyte chemical sensor array for underwater explosives detection

    SBC: EMITECH, INC.            Topic: N162120

    In this Phase I project, we will define and develop a concept for a multi-analyte sensor system to detect explosive threat compounds of interest at operationally relevant concentrations in seawater. Explosives trace detection and classification will be performed by Emitechs novel technology, which involves smart nanocomposites and multi-parametric electro-optical sensing. We will conduct a fea ...

  7. Trace Multi-Analyte Chemical Detection System for Underwater UXO Applications

    SBC: SPECTRUM PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N162120

    Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) response teams encounter a variety of underwater explosive threats including limpet mines, naval mines, underwater improvised explosive devices (UW-IEDs) and other UXO. If successful, the proposed trace chemical/explosive sensor system will provide improved classification and identification of suspect underwater targets in missions for which acoustic and/or v ...

  8. Simulating Training Results to Understand Differing Effects of fidelity on Learning (STRUDEL)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N162124

    The Navy uses intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) coupled with training simulations to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of training for a wide variety of operational tasks. These training simulations require significant cost and effort to develop. Unfortunately, the lack of evidence-based design guidelines for critical decisions such as fidelity leads to simulations that are developed in a ...

  9. Fidelity Levels for Optimal Training Effectiveness (FLOTE)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N162124

    A critical capability of simulation-based training environments is the degree to which they present a faithful representation of reality. However, there is a scarcity of scientifically-sound tools and methodologies to assess when increased fidelity will lead to better mission effective performance, and thus substantiate associated high costs that often accompany the development of certain simulato ...

  10. Advanced Swarm System Interface Software Toolkit (ASSIST)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N162126

    Advanced supervisory control tools are needed for managing large teams of swarms. To address this need, we will design and demonstrate Advanced Swarm System Interface Software Toolkit (ASSIST) for efficient and effective multi-level awareness and proactive management of swarm systems. ASSISTs rich decision-support interfaces will convey key critical information to enable awareness, projection, and ...
