  1. Next Gen Optical Modem for SmallSat High Data Rate Optical Communications

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: AF182066

    Fibertek proposes to develop a space qualifiable, small, optical modem board to support interoperable, encoding and decoding for free-space optical communications links. Space is a contested environment where traditional RF communications are susceptible to being jammed and intercepted. Optical communications offer a resilient solution, and its inclusion on SmallSats and in constellations is an Ai ...

  2. Provably Unclonable Functions on Re-configurable Devices

    SBC: Potomac Research LLC            Topic: A18BT001

    Physically UnclonableFunctions (PUFs) have been proposed as central building blocks in cryptographic protocols and security architectures. PUFs are physical devices that exhibit a challenge/responsebehavior: when presented with a challenge, the device produces a response that is a random function of both the challenge and the physical properties of the device.In contrast to most digital designs, i ...

  3. A Novel Integrated Low Leakage IPS and Thrust Bearing for Rocket Turbopumps

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF181031

    A novel integrated inter-propellant seal and thrust bearing (IPS/TB) for rocket turbopump applications that uses the latest technology developments in seal coatings and additive manufacturing to advance the state-of-the-art. The IPS/TB has low propellant loss, requires little or no purge gas, and no continuous purge when the turbopump is not in operation. The thrust bearing portion can handle all ...

  4. Carbon Nanotubes as Transparent Heater Film

    SBC: INTER MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: N182103

    One of the main interests and urgent need for the US Navy is to develop an embedded carbon nanotube (CNT) transparent heater film to be used for de-icing and defogging aircraft windshields. To mitigate the burnout of the conductive heater layer as the leading cause of aircraft windscreen failures, INTER Materials proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative technology that promises to ...

  6. Transparent Carbon Nanotube Resistive Heater System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N182103

    Navy aircraft possess highly sophisticated windshields and window materials that enable superior performance and visibility for pilots and mission operators. Windshields on the V-22 tiltrotor aircraft have recently been found to be susceptible to failure due to burnout of the embedded conductive heater layer. The transparent metallic heater layer is designed to enable deicing via electric/resistiv ...

  7. Analysis of Dislocation Density, Recrystallization, and Residual Stress in 5XXX Aluminum using Laser Peening to mitigate Exfoliation Corrosion

    SBC: HEPBURN AND SONS LLC            Topic: N18AT016

    Hepburn and Sons LLC teaming with The Ohio State University, Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis (CEMAS) propose to research and develop an innovative application of laser peening technology to mitigate exfoliation corrosion, a special type of inter-granular corrosion that occurs on the elongated grain boundaries. Strongly related, these Mg based alloys, when exposed to tensile stresses, c ...

  8. Laser Surface Melt Treatment and Galvanic Protection of 5XXX

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N18AT016

    Exfoliation corrosion of 5XXX series aluminum alloy is an issue related to the sensitization of the aluminum substrate typically occurring at end-grains. The Navy is interested in preventing this corrosion to decrease lifetime costs on Littoral Combat Ships, Ship-to-Shore Connector vessels, and Ticonderoga class ships. Luna will investigate surface modification using laser surface melt processing ...

  9. Virus-Like Particle Based pan-Marburgvirus Vaccine

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: CBD18A002

    Marburg virus (MARV) is a filamentous enveloped non-segmented negative sense RNA virus. This viruse is considered to be extremelydangerous with case fatality rates as high as 88-90%. Extensive efforts have gone towards effective vaccines for MARV prevention, however,none have been successfully established as licensed vaccines. Glycoprotein (GP) is the only surface protein of MARV. There are substa ...

  10. Smart Baseplate for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DLA18A001

    Additive manufacturing (AM) has rapidly evolved into a valuable technique for making parts which, at times, cannot be fabricated through conventional machining methods.One challenge in the area of AM is the lack of real-time feedback on the fabrication process and the quality of the part being made.This is especially critical given the relatively long periods of time that complex parts can require ...
