  1. Prediction of the Full-Scale Cook-off Response Based on Small-Scale Testing

    SBC: BLAZETECH CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT011

    Reducing the violence of Slow Cook-Off (SCO) and Fast Cook-Off (FCO) to acceptable levels is of great interest to the Insensitive Munitions development. For example, the MIL-STD-2105C SCO test for Insensitive Munitions (IM) compliance requires a slow heating rate (3.3C/hr) until reaction occurs whereby the ensuing reaction is characterized by degree of violence. A Type V (burn) reaction or better ...

  2. High Hesitivity Magnetic Materials for Magnetic Toroid and Flat Dipole Antennas

    SBC: Winchester Technologies, LLC            Topic: N16AT001

    Novel approaches are needed to improve the performance and reduce the size, number and signature of antennas with significantly enhanced efficiency in HF-UHF. It has been shown recently hesitivity, which is able to characterize the performance of the material and categorize the radiation efficiency of magnetodielectric wire antennas; the higher the hesitivity, the higher the attainable antenna eff ...

  3. System to Evaluate and Assess Holistic Aircrew Workload (SEAHAWK)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N16AT002

    The Navy is continually developing new technologies to improve warfighting effectiveness. These technologies risk overloading Aircrews physical and cognitive capacities, thereby degrading performance. To mitigate that risk, the Navy needs a system to assess Aircrews physical and cognitive workloads unobtrusively and objectively. Such a system must (1) perform real-time data collection in a robust ...

  4. Perovskite Solar Cells

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N16AT006

    The goal of the proposed research is to develop light-weight, flexible, high efficiency solar cells made from perovskite halide light-harvesting materials for use on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), for use in conjunction with an energy storage system. Solar cells have historically been heavy, costly, and inflexible. In this research, low-cost manufacturing methods will be used to make high effici ...

  5. Computational Methods for Dynamic Scene Reconstruction

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N16AT017

    The ubiquity of high-resolution imagery and video taken by surveillance cameras, handheld cameras, vehicle-mounted cameras, and airborne cameras is creating a rich source of dynamic data that offers opportunities for effectively solving defense, security and law enforcement problems. But in order to develop effective scene and activity understanding applications we must develop robust, accurate an ...

  6. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: SOFAR Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N16AT018

    This effort is focused on establishing an important capability of providing a comprehensive, advanced model of the three-dimensional acoustic field, including propagation, scattering, and reverberation in complex and dynamic environments. This new 3D acoustic model would feed the Navys sonar performance estimation tool with a purpose of addressing the optimal placement of sensors in complicated en ...

  7. Hybrid Unmanned Air / Underwater Vehicle for Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Mine Countermeasures (MCM)

    SBC: Greensight Agronomics, Inc.            Topic: N16AT025

    A particularly challenging task for the US Navy today is that of Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) of underwater mines; the Mine Countermeasures (MCM) mission. The semi-submersible Remote Multi-Mission Vehicle (RMMV) has emerged as an unmanned solution to handle MCM missions. While the RMMV is groundbreaking, the basis of the technology is a relatively slow-moving watercraft.GreenSight Agronomics, ...

  8. In-Air E-field Sensor for Airborne Applications

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: N15AT004

    The U.S. Navy is seeking new technologies and platforms to advance airborne anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and related maritime surveillance. Current magnetic anomaly detection (MAD) sensors, such as the latest versions of atomic magnetometers, are capable of very low noise operation. However, the performance of these sensors can be limited by the geomagnetic noise environment more so than by eithe ...

  9. Deep Inference and Fusion Framework Utilizing Supporting Evidence (DIFFUSE)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: MDA15T001

    Combining information from disparate sensors can lead to better situational awareness and improved inference performance; unfortunately, traditional multi-sensor fusion cannot capture complex dependencies among different objects in a scene, nor can it exploit context to further boost performance. Integrating context information within a fusion architecture to reason cohesively about scenes of inte ...

  10. Real-Time Health Management Portable Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA14T004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate a portable, non-invasive, real-time sensor to assess the chemical and physical health of solid rocket motors as a function of age without affecting the motors integrity nor having direct contact with the propellant. In Phase II, a sensor to monitor specific gas species that are markers of the chemical and mechanical aging pr ...
