  2. Accelerated Learning in Simulation-based Training (A-LIST)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD08CR5

    Across the services, warfighters are expected to rapidly master new knowledge and skills, spanning wide variety of domains, from motor to cognitive. Traditional training systems generally lack the capability to apply adaptive training strategies that might accelerated learning and develop expertise that endures. While, a number of DoD sponsored programs, including Augmented Cognition and Human Per ...

  4. Active Damage Detection & Visualization for Naval Assets

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: N10AT042

    This proposal presents an optimized approach for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of naval assets. This research leverages hardware previously developed by Metis Design Corporation (MDC), including distributed digitization hardware, piezoelectric-based damage-localization sensors, and a data accumulation hub. Collaborating with UCSD, there were three main thrusts for the Phase I research: sensor ...

  6. Adaptive Platform-Independent Control System for ROV Launch and Recovery

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N093215

    Launch and recovery of tethered remotely operated submersible vehicles is a challenging engineering problem requiring careful design and integration of hardware, software, and control algorithms. As succinctly described in the solicitation for SBIR topic N093-215, manual operation of the launch and recovery system (LARS) is dependant on operator proficiency and alertness. The overall objective of ...

  9. Advanced Marine Engine for Combatant Craft Increased Payload

    SBC: EngineTec, Inc.            Topic: N092122

    Today's riverine forces employ combatant patrol/assault craft that relies on speed, acceleration, and maneuverability for survivability and multi-mission success. These capabilities are at risk because of the increasing demand to carry more extensive payloads. Current diesel propulsion systems are typicallymodifications of truck or industrial engines with a weight to power ratio of 3-5 (lb/hp ...

  10. Advanced Rail Materials for Electromagnetic Launchers

    SBC: AEROPROBE CORPORATION            Topic: N101086

    Improving the useful rail life is major technical barrier to developing a fleet-deployable electromagnetic (EM) launcher. Current copper alloy rails, while having excellent electrical conductivity, are highly susceptible to hypervelocity gouging, galling, and attack by liquid aluminum transferred from the armature. Without a solution for these rail wear problems, the utility of EM launchers may be ...
