  2. Objective Measurement Tool for Detection and Monitoring of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: DHP15015

    We propose to take our hearing-test device, which was designed to support research in advancing hearing-conservation programs, and ruggedize it for use in theater. Five key challenges that make the commercial-off-the-shelf OAE systems unsuitable for HCPs, will be overcome. We will: 1) implement next-generation otoacoustic emission tests to enable OAE measurements in noise-damaged ears, 2) add smar ...

  3. Joint Reinforcing Coatings for Navy Ships CRES Pipe Systrms

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N151042

    The U.S. Navy seeks a proactive approach to reinforce the thin walled corrosion resistant steel (CRES) pipes at the welded joints in order to prevent potential leaks from occurring in situations where joint cracks are generated. Currently, there is no known product available to meet this need. Resodyn Corporation proposes for development a clear, tough, corrosion protective, VOC-free thermoplastic ...

  4. Low-Cost-By-Design Widely Tunable Mid-Wave Infrared Surface Emitting Lasers

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: N151023

    The functionality of widely tunable sampled grating mid-infrared lasers will be enhanced through the development of surface emission. This technology provides fast, non-mechanical tuning in the mid-infrared spectral range. The proposed research will investigate the feasibility of integrating a 45 degree facet with the sampled grating distributed feedback quantum cascade laser in order to simultane ...

  5. Innovative Physics-based Modeling Tool for Application to Passive Radio Frequency Identification System on Rotorcraft

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N15AT005

    It is well known that the interior air frame makes for a complex RF environment. This is due to the resonant electromagnetic cavity nature of the air frame interior, which is a result of a large internal volume and conductive boundaries. This complex interior presents a challenge in determining optimal placement of RFID tags. We propose to develop a physics based computational tool for optimizing ...

  6. Enhanced Cell Designs for Improved Internal Heat Transfer for High Rate and Power Capable, Large-Format Batteries

    SBC: INVENTEK CORP            Topic: N151073

    For this SBIR, InvenTek provides its unique disc-shaped Li-ion cells to meet the high-rate requirements of a shipboard battery. These cells consist of short electrode (13mm tall) and massive connection to cell terminals to boost cell power and internal heat dissipation. The anisotropic thermal properties of conventional cylindrical and prismatic cells create thermal management problems for the Nav ...

  7. Development of 7050 T-74 Aluminum Alloy Alternative for use in Additive Manufacturing (AM) Systems

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N151010

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) promises to be an innovative technology that can enable rapid manufacturing of complex parts at greatly reduced cycle time. Application of this technology to the manufacture of aircraft structural components is limited by the lack of high-strength aluminum alloys optimized for AM processing. In this Phase I SBIR program, QuesTek Innovations, a leader in the field of int ...

  9. Ceramic Matrix Composites for Advanced Tactical Missile Radomes

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N131056

    Advanced missile radomes require robust high temperature materials for high speed flight. Current advanced radome materials are limited by thermal, electrical, and impact performance. ATFI has developed an oxide ceramic matrix composite (CMC) which has demonstrated required electrical, thermal and structural performance. This proposal will focus on improved impact performance, as well as incorpora ...

  10. Ring-Cavity Surface-Emitting Quantum Cascade Laser Array

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: N13AT006

    Surface emitting semiconductor lasers eliminate the necessity for facet cleaving and allow for wafer scale testing, which increase the manufacturing yield and reduces the cost. However, in the mid-infrared, surface emitting semiconductor lasers are significantly underdeveloped compared to edge emitting devices. The proposed STTR Phase II research is to demonstrate a prototype using ring-cavity sur ...
