  1. Multiple Beam Antennas with Semi-Constrained Beamformers

    SBC: AJK TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    A mobile satellite communications link operating from vehicles on-the-move would provide significant benefits to the Marine Corps in the battlefield environment. The antenna should be capable of simultaneous and rapid tracking of two satellites while the vehicle is in motion over rough terrain, as well as providing ultra-wide bandwidth (C-band through Ku-band), medium to high gain, low profile, ru ...

  2. Novel Method for Strengthening Sapphire at Elevated Temperatures

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop a novel process to increase the strength of sapphire at elevated temperatures. The resulting strength increase will alleviate the adverse effects of frictional heating of sapphire windows. Frictional heating can initiate a c-axis strength loss, leading to premature failure. The Aspen process will uniformly implant silicon atoms through the entire window, as ...

  3. Image Processing for Sonar Active Classification


    This Phase I SBIR proposal is aimed at developing and assessing the feasibility of Image Processing Techniques to distinguish between submarine and non-submarine in Active Sonar Echoes. Image Processing Techniques have proven to be highly effective in detecting objects in cluttered backgrounds using other sensors such as Synthetic Aperture Radar, Infrared Sensors, and Lasers. The highly reverberan ...

  5. Biofouling Monitor

    SBC: BRIDGER SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Bridger Scientific, Inc. proposed to develop an inexpensive, real time monitor which utilizes proven surface, g techniques to measure both microbial and abiotic fouling on surfaces exposed to coolant seawater. The monitor will be designed as a small insertion probe, capable of being water pipelines. Real time data generated by the ...

  6. Improved Mid-Frequency Statistical Energy Analysis Modeling Procedures


    Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA)is currently used to predict high-frequency airborne and structureborne noise and vibration for ships, aircraft, aerospace systems, and automobiles, while finite element analysis (FEA) is used for low-frequencies. A mid-frequency region exists where neither technique gives accurate predictions. The study being proposed will develop modeling procedures that a ...

  7. Underwater Acoustic Channel and Network Optimization

    SBC: Delphi Communication Systems            Topic: N/A

    The objectives of this work are (1) to develop methods for acoustic channel prediction from nominal oceanographic data, and (2) to optimally design underwater acoustic networks to maximize the network surveillance performance, while minimizing its power consimption. The example network consists of a master node and a multitude of possibly mobile sensor nodes whose task is to report the information ...

  9. An Improved High-Energy-Density Battery

    SBC: ECO ENERGY CONVERSION            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the Phase I program is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a cell in annular design which meets the Navy's mission needs. This cell is to utilize Li/CFx chemistry to take advantage of the high energy density and improved safety of this chemistry. In the Phase I program, ECO will develop an improved cathode material and then demonstrate the performance of this cathode mate ...

  10. High Performance Capacitor Dielectrics From Self Assembled Monolayer Based Fabrication

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Eikos will develop high performance capacitor dielectrics based on self-assembled monolayer buildup processing. This approach to building a capacitor dielectric will include incorporation of a graft conducting polymer as at least one of the electrodes, resulting in superior stored energy density with low dissipation factor at voltage ranges (5V to 500V) currently dominated by inefficient electrol ...
