  1. Advanced Hybrid Thermoelectric-Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Energy Conversion for High Efficiency Portable Power

    SBC: Atrex Energy, Inc.            Topic: OSD08EP4

    The proposal would provide the design and basic product development work to augment the power generation efficiency of fuel cells developed by Acumentrics Corp. by converting waste heat into electricity by highly efficient thermoelectric (TE) power generation. Three paths will be explored in Phase I to add a TE generator to the SOFC. The first will explore the use of a material that is used in co ...

  2. Marine Portable Power Unit

    SBC: Atrex Energy, Inc.            Topic: N06105

    A conceptual design of a battery charging station with UPS back-up capability was completed under contract M67854-C-6509. The resulting system can charge up to twelve BB-2590 batteries at the maximum charging current (to minimize charging time) and provide 1000 Watts of back-up power (both AC and DC outputs are provided) for at least one hour. Individual batteries can be hot-swapped for field us ...

  3. Power Source Materials & Subcomponents Manufacturing Improvements


    Manufacturers of military batteries often need raw materials that may have long lead times, limited production and/or high costs. During Phase I of this project, Advanced Membrane Systems (AMS) made some modifications and improvements to one of its products (a lithium ion battery separator), and made it suitable for Li/SO2 cell applications. Phase II of this proposal is for qualification of batter ...

  4. An Ensemble Kalman Filtering Approach for Regional Ocean Data Assimilation


    Current and future operational needs of the Navy require the capability to combine very large and disparate datasets with dynamical ocean numerical models to produce, in real time, accurate analyses and forecasts together with respective uncertainty estimates for any littoral region of the globe. We propose to implement a highly scalable, portable and efficient ocean data assimilation system base ...

  5. Variable Remapping of Airborne Imagery

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N07018

    Cooperative targeting technologies enable F18 strike aircraft and tactical UASs (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) to work together to provide close air support, particularly in close-quarters urban combat. VRAI (“Variable Remapping of Airborne Imagery”) ties together these assets more effectively, speeding-up the visual cueing and confirmation bottleneck, insuring 1st-pass success. VRAI digitally ...

  6. WDM Based True Time Delay Array for Advanced RF Beamforming

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N08167

    An innovative concept for a scalable true time delay (TTD) array for digital beamforming is proposed. The concept is photonics and fiber optic wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) based and will support transmit/receive applications over the 1 to 20 GHz, extendable up to V bands. The design provides a digitally controlled true time delay array for beamforming effectively adaptive to Navy phased ...

  7. Cure System Equipment Optimization for Rapid Cure Epoxy Coated Fiberglass

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N08137

    Based on Agiltron’s extensive experience of design and fabrication of UV LED cure systems that are currently employed in the fiber optics field, we propose to construct a new cost-effective UV LED-based cure system and epoxy resin for the rapid cure epoxy impregnated fiberglass for galvanic barrier ply applications. Our novel optical design enables this UV cure system to deliver sufficient and ...

  8. High Performance Fiber Optic Rotary Joint System

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N08206

    Agiltron proposes to develop a new class of multi-channel FORJ, which meets the demanding aerospace communication rotary link requirement of ultra-reliability, light weight, compact size, and high performance. Our approach is based on an optical wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) platform which enables a single light beam to carry multi-channel signals and pass through the rotary joint. The un ...

  10. Low Bend Loss and Rugged Graded Index Multimode Fiber for Ribbon Cable Application

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N08115

    Agiltron and StockerYale team proposes to develop a new class of multimode fiber that is more durable, reliable, and tight-bending to replace the current mil-spec qualified fibers used in aerospace. Our approach is a combination of a proven trench assistant design principle optimization and effective carbon coating. The new class of multimode fiber has attributes that is 100 times more bendable t ...
