  1. Wave Energy Harvesting to Power Unmanned Surface Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N05T021

    Recent world events have highlighted the need for timely and accurate intelligence data to assess threats and combat terror. An unmanned surface vehicle (USV ) can potentially perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, provide force protection, hunt for mines in coastal waters or harbors, and provide port security. USVs under development by the Navy are powered by the ...

  2. Engineered Materials for improved Airborne Laser Mine Detection Systems

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: BMDO02001

    This Navy SBIR Phase II effort will develop the processing steps required to fabricate high quality periodically poled stoichiometric lithium tantalate (PPSLT) and demonstrate its utility for use in both current and emerging Airborne Laser Mine Detection Systems (ALMDS) by enabling highly efficient laser wavelenth conversion. The proposed optical material will also support the development of shor ...

  3. A narrowband, frequency-agile laser for optical interrogation of arrayed fiber optic sensors

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: AF02005

    The VIRGINIA Class submarine employs the Light-Weight Wide Aperture Array (LWWAA) hull-mounted array of fiber-optic hydrophones that requires the use of high performance, narrowband lasers. In this Navy Phase II SBIR effort, a prototype laser for the LWWAA hull-array sensor will be developed using the frequency-stabilized semiconductor laser technology demonstrated during the Phase I effort. The ...

  4. UAV-based mine detection using a short pulse, high repetition rate, multicolor laser transmitter

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N04203

    This SBIR Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of a UAV compatible lidar scanner/receiver for use with a high repetition rate, short pulse, multicolor laser transmitter. The system features an electro-optic beam scanner and a fiber optic receiver. The key innovation in this effort is a beam steering device without moving parts which offers high bandwidth, wide scan range, low loss, and ...

  6. An Integratable Ultra-Compact Optical Sensor System for Situation Awareness and Aircraft Self-Protection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N05027

    The proposal addresses a new class of large field of view panoramic two color + RF sensor system that is based on a revolutionary concept in sensing optics, potentially providing all weather, all aspect, multi spectral threat warning system. The new design is a practical solution to incorporate uncooled IR detector and UV detector with existing RF warning sensors to significantly enhance situatio ...

  7. Microscopic Damage Detection and Remaining Life Assessment of Printed Circuit Boards

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N03158

    Inspection of printed circuit boards (PCB) to detect and repair defects is critical for the readiness of military equipment. A new technology is needed to perform sophisticated characterization of defects, and predict the remaining life of electronics without costly, PCB and IC specific hardware and software. The technology proposed by RMD could revolutionize the nondestructive evaluation (NDE) o ...

  8. Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) of Small-Diameter Titanium Tubing

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N05007

    New technology is needed for the nondestructive inspection (NDI) of microscopic defects in the thin-wall, titanium alloy hydraulic lines used on aircraft. Once mounted on an aircraft, these tubes are difficult to access externally, making inspection of the tube from the inside the most practical method for NDI. The Navy has identified a specific need for the NDI of titanium tubing with diameters r ...

  9. Non-Gaussian Likelihood Detectors for Broadband Active Sonar

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N02029

    In shallow water environments or using broadband processing,detection statistics enerated from sonar data can exhibit highly non-Gaussian statistics due to the discrete nature of the returns from different clutter elements in different range resolution cells. Optimal likelihood detectors rely crucially on accurate estimation of the clutter distribution, and poor fits to an assumed Gaussian probabi ...

  10. Hydrogen Separation from a Logistic-Fuel Reformate Stream

    SBC: ANALYTIC POWER LLC            Topic: N05040

    Despite fifteen years of R&D, PEM fuel cell power plants have not been successfully deployed on naval vessels. The principal cause is the fuel processor, which must operate on diesel fuel with up to 1wt% sulfur, but provide pure hydrogen to a PEM fuel cell that is intolerant of impurities. The fuel processors must be small, efficient and inexpensive. These have been the Navy goals for as long a ...
