  1. Ocean Surface Transceiver Free Space Optical Communication System

    SBC: Verdant Networks            Topic: N122116

    Communication from ocean-surface sonobuoys to airborne platforms is critical to Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) operations. Existing Radio-Frequency (RF) solutions encounter several challenges which Free-Space Optical (FSO) systems solve. FSO systems for sonobuoy applications have unique challenges that proper system design can overcome. Verdant Networks is proposing an asymmetric system design that ...

  2. Carbon Monoxide Detector For Aviation Oxygen Systems

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N122120

    Agiltron Inc. proposes to develop a compact, sensitive, and selective tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) based multi-gas sensor for OBOGS breathing oxygen monitoring. In the proposed research, novel laser diodes that output wavelength tunable from 2000 nm to 3500 nm will be used to dramatically increase the number of gases that can be detected and improve the sensitivity achievabl ...

  3. Advanced Mission Display and Planning Tools (AMPT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N122124

    Intuitive mission display visualization and planning capabilities are needed to enhance operator situation awareness when supervising teams of unmanned vehicles. To address this need, we will design and demonstrate Advanced Mission Display and Planning Tools (AMPT) to reduce the workload of re-planning and re-tasking teams of heterogeneous vehicles. These decision-support interfaces will use simpl ...

  4. Efficient and Lightweight Cryogenic Gas Heat Exchanger

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N122128

    Mezzo Technologies fabricates high performance micro tube heat exchangers. In this proposal, Mezzo proposes to fabricate a heat exchanger to interface between helium, which is the working fluid used to cool a variety of superconducting components on Navy vessels in the future that will require cryogenic cooling, and cold neon gas, which is supplied by a Reverse Brayton cryocooler. Mezzo's app ...

  5. Retractable Advanced Mooring System (RAMS)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N122129

    Retractable mooring fixtures are a critical component on the flight deck of a DDG51 class Navy ship. The chocks and bitts must be recessed below the deck level for helicopter operations, while reliably and easily deployed for mooring situations. The current mooring fixtures do not stand up to the highly corrosive environment of the flight deck and the lack of maintenance reduces the reliability of ...

  6. Team Performance Metrics for Command and Control of Unmanned Systems


    The primary objective of the proposed research is to develop, and to demonstrate the feasibility of a mathematically rigorous approach for modeling and evaluating human supervisory control of multiple unmanned and/or autonomous vehicles. This high-level objective is decomposed into three inter-related goals: (1) the development of a mathematical model of human supervisory control, for individual o ...

  7. Cost Effective Manufacturing of Piezoelectric Acoustic Sensors (CEMPAS)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N122139

    Arrays of vector velocity sensors have exhibited major system improvements over traditional omnidirectional hydrophones in undersea acoustic sensing. Compact accelerometers made from relaxor piezoelectric crystals are the key element which allow for the improved functionality of the vector velocity sensor arrays. These relaxor piezoelectric crystals are extremely sensitive and compact; but manufac ...

  8. SEASCAPE: System for Efficient Agile Signal Classification of Adversary Produced Emitters

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N122140

    Tactical electromagnetic environments have become much more complex over the last two decades with a higher density of more diverse and more sophisticated emitters. Signals of interest are becoming much more frequency agile and have a lower probability of intercept, making it much harder to detect and identify them. To support the Navy in maintaining a combat advantage in dense signal environments ...

  9. Technologies for Enabling Warfighter Intuitive Decision Making

    SBC: Icosystem Corporation            Topic: N122144

    Traditional concepts of neural-machine interface use brain signals as: control inputs; to assess neurocognitive states for modification of information delivery to improve human performance; to guide selection of image sets. We propose a revolutionary concept of interfacing Electrical Geodesics"technology (sensors and brain signal analysis) with Icosystem"s interactive evolutionary computation (IEC ...

  10. SeaCube Radar Altimeter for CubeSats

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N122146

    Busek Co. Inc. with expertise in spacecraft electric propulsion systems, including microwave generated plasmas and CubeSats, and ImSAR LLC with expertise in small Synthetic Aperture Radars (SAR) for Unmanned Arial Vehicles (UAVs) have teamed up to develop an ocean sensing radar altimeter called SeaCube. SeaCube will fit into 1U of a 3U CubeSat, operate in pulsed mode, consume low orbit average pow ...
