  1. Mitigation of USV Motions via Wave Sensing and Prediction

    SBC: VECTOR CONTROLS, INC.            Topic: N10AT036

    A boats coxswain is adept at analyzing the wave environment, adjusting the crafts propulsion system and control surfaces to mitigate its motions and reduce the chance of capsizing. There is a significant predictive component in the coxswains control decisions. Unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) lack the benefit of a highly trained coxswain reading and predicting oncoming waves - existing autonomous ...

  2. High Energy Density Hydrogen Delivery System

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N10AT030

    The US Navy requires advanced power systems for emerging autonomous underwater vehicle platforms, and hydrogen/oxygen fuel cells have been identified as a suitable replacement for the costly and hazardous primary lithium batteries currently in use. Giner Electrochemical Systems, LLC (GES) and Purdue have teamed to demonstrate a novel chemical hydride fueling solution that will enable onboard hydro ...

  3. Automated Linguistic Analysis Revealing Misrepresentation and Messaging (ALARMM)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT029

    The proposed Automated Linguistic Analysis Revealing Misrepresentation and Messaging (ALARMM) system significantly advances the state of the art in detecting deception in unstructured data such as websites and chat messages. Our research focuses on automated techniques based on linguistic theory that can detect both misrepresentations and hidden messages. The proposed work draws on the field of so ...

  4. High Density, Insensitive Oxidizer with RDX Performance

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N11AT034

    RDX and HMX are energetic oxidizers with high energy density, but have moderate sensitivity to accidental detonation. The Navy requires new energetic oxidizers with performance comparable to or better than HMX and RDX, but with low sensitivity. Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), and its partner, propose to synthesize and characterize a new triazine based energetic oxidizer with high energy and low sens ...

  5. 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. Transport of Underwater Sensor Data

    SBC: BENTHOS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Undersea sensors require means of transporting data to an end-user. Acoustic modem networks are being developed for this purpose, but they are limited by battery power, network priorities, and requirements for clandestine operations. We propose a systemsapproach to reducing the impact on the network of moving large volumes of data, using both low rate and high rate acoustic telemetry, combined w ...

  7. Affordability Measurement and Prediction Methods to Support Affordable Design of Ship Systems

    SBC: COGNITION CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Maximum reduction of cost occurs early in ship design when there is significant uncertainty. In this environment, development of novel ship systems means historic and probabilistic data is absent, and uncertainty based-heuristics (fuzzy systems) are necessary. The hierarchical and extendable decision tool developed in this project uses uncertainty-based heuristics (fuzzy logic/systems) to evalua ...

  10. Design, Fabrication and Testing of a Versatile Outfitting Attachment System Kit for Naval Sandwich Panels

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    KaZaK Composites and the University of Massachusetts-Lowell will conduct an analytical and experimental investigation of technology alternatives for mounting hardware to composite sandwich panels used in shipboard structures. The KCI/UML team will workwith Bath Iron Works to ensure that attachment system solutions developed during the program are compatible with demanding and diverse needs associa ...
