  1. Modeling the Impact of Technology Transition on Ship Operational Capabilities

    SBC: Beacon Interactive Systems LLC            Topic: N05053

    During Phase I, we experimented with several transition approaches and ran into three hurdles: 1) No matter how good the method for transitioning technology, if the development process has not been well-managed, there will be no technology to transition; 2) Transition does not happen without an incredible amount of expertise and data; 3) Good technology does not matter if no one is aware of its e ...

  2. 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. High Resolution, Room Temperature Semiconductor Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05006

    Proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. Prevention of the spread of nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, especially since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. Gamma ray spectrometers are an important tool in checking the proliferation of the nuclear weapons. Important re ...

  4. Low-cost Individual Digital Dosimeters using Solid State Photomultipliers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05007

    U.S. forces working in low-level radiation environments have unsatisfactory choices for monitoring radiation exposure. A solid-state photomultiplier (SSPM) uses an array of silicon based avalanche photodiodes (APD) to collect light and produce a signal proportional to the amount of light collected. The ability to produce arrays of APD’s in a CMOS (Complimentary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) envir ...

  5. Design and Development of Silicon-Based Infrared Imaging Sensor

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB062015

    Low cost IR Sensors are needed for a variety of Military and commercial applications such as low cost thermal imagers and the ability to detect and defeat threats such as mortar fire on ground vehicles. SiGe based IR Focal Planes offers a low cost alternative for developing near IR sensors that will not require any cooling and can operate in the NIR band. The attractive features of SiGe based IRFP ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...
