  1. Automated, Drone-Based Grade Crossing Inspection

    SBC: MTRI, Inc.            Topic: 190FR6

    Drone–based assessment of rail grade crossings offers a great potential for rapid assessment of hang-up condition, visual sight line analysis, and crossing infrastructure. Through the Phase I SBIR, a proof-of-concept system was demonstrated at highway-rail crossings near Chelsea, MI with partner review. The collected imagery was processed through 3D photogrammetric software to produce high resol ...

  2. Submarine Sensor Environmental Inference

    SBC: HIGH REZ CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: N182135

    Within the increasingly contested undersea operational arena, the Navy needs a tactical and competitive advantage in undersea sensing and detection through improved situational awareness with respect to environmental parameters, such as sound speed profile (SSP) and bottom properties, that affect overall submarine sonar sensor performance. Current approaches for enhancing environmental situational ...

  3. Common Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) Stern Launch and Recovery System

    SBC: Great Lakes Sound & Vibration, Inc.            Topic: N181039

    GLSV Inc. is developing an innovative, modular, adjustable system to launch and recover UUVs from the Freedom and Independence-class LCS ships, using the LCS stern overhead cranes. One common platform will be modular and adjustable to be used on both ships, and will provide fast tempo launch and recovery during Sea State 3 conditions. The L&R platform will be adjustable and adaptable to accommodat ...

  4. Innovative, High-Energy, High Power, Light-Weight Battery Storage Systems Based on Li-air, Li-sulfur (Li-S) chemistries

    SBC: Navitas Advanced Solutions Group, LLC            Topic: N152093

    Low cost and high capacity make lithium sulfur batteries (LSB) the next generation of lithium ion batteries. Practical application of LSB technology remains limited by low utilization of sulfur and fast capacity fading of sulfur cathodes. The root causes are poor electronic conductivity of the cathode combined with high solubility of intermediate polysulfide products formed during cycling. To over ...

  5. Soliloquy Ph II

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N17AT010

    Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) allows trainees to practice verbal communication skills in representative training environments without the need for human role players. However, these technologies have yet to become a feature of most training systems. Building on Phase I work, SoarTech along with our academic partners at UC Davis, proposes developing Soliloquy, a novel interface that allows non ...

  6. Joined Evaluation of Simulation-enabled Training for Enhanced Readiness (JESTER)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: OSD11CR1

    Joined Evaluation of Simulation-enabled Training for Enhanced Readiness (JESTER) focuses on research, development, and testing of a new capability, compatible and integrated with the Navy’s Next Generation Threat System (NGTS) that will enable dynamic performance assessments within Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) training scenarios. This work builds prior effort designed to enhance algorit ...

  7. Physics-based Computationally Efficient Spray Combustion Models for LES of Multiphase Reacting Flows

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N17AT002

    One important challenge for the reliable prediction of liquid fuel effects on the combustion in aviation combustors and augmentors is the accurate modeling of underlying physical processes, involving the evaporation of fuels, preferential vaporization, scalar mixing and ignition. LES methodologies are required to accurately capture these transient and inherently unsteady combustion processes. In t ...

  10. ARCHIMEDES

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N17AT004

    Evidence-based guidelines derived from the learning sciences literature can be applied to training-requirements decisions. However, accessing the state-of-the-art in the learning sciences and applying its lessons to specific training design and analysis questions can be difficult, especially for those not already familiar with the learning sciences. ARCHIMEDES, the software tool proposed in this e ...
