  1. Energy Recovery For Efficient Use Of Navy Fuels For Hydrogen Generation

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: N05158

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) proposes to develop a breakthrough Microlith short-contact-time catalytic steam reformer (CSR) system for reforming logistics fuels to hydrogen for a 50 kWe fuel cell. This technology offers to achieve high efficiency in steam reforming in a system that is remarkably smaller and more lightweight than current steam reformers. In addition water requirement should b ...

  2. Sonobuoy System and Concept of Operations for Time-Reversal-Based Target Detection

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N07014

    Existing multistatic airborne ASW systems require high power sources and are unable to exploit the significant forward scattering strength of a submarine target due to the blinding presence of the direct blast. Time reversal (TR) is a recent method for focusing acoustic energy at a point using pairs of source and receive arrays. The TR focus provides a measure of propagation channel stability, al ...

  3. Fire Integrity in Advanced Ship Structures

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N07098

    A fully coupled fire simulation and thermal-mechanical response and damage prediction tool will be developed by enhancing, packaging, and integrating our existing solution modules as an add-on tool kit for a commercial finite element solver such as ABAQUS. This tool will for the first time be able to model the fluid-structure coupled response of an advanced ship structure to a fire environment and ...

  4. Advanced Intelligent Web-Based Options to Acquire and Analyze Aircraft Health and Test Data

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08122

    Automated assessment and forecasting of aircraft health status has become a prime requirement for safety, reliability, and cost streamlining for 21st century’s aviation sector. Presently, a variety of flight data, functionality, performance, and maintenance information are being collected and some are stored in databases, but an integrated health management (HM) system that utilizes all these in ...

  5. Interactive Marine Mammal Communications

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: N07024

    A series of whale strandings have been correlated to the operation of naval medium-frequency active sonars. The goal of the Sonalysts and WhaleAcoustics research is to determine how to protect marine mammals, particularly beaked whales, while allowing the Navy to conduct sonar training. The Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) makes it harder to study the problem. We propose to analyze passively ...

  6. Distributed Sensor System Innovations

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N07070

    The overall intent of this project is to develop a triaxial pressure-acceleration vector sensor that is suitable for reliable acoustic path sensing. The sensor is intended to have a nominal size that is commensurate with an AN/SSQ-53 DIFAR sonobuoy wet-end transducer, have a 6 km submergence depth rating, and exhibit a noise floor of nominally 40 dB re 1 micro-pascals-squared per hertz. This is ...

  7. Naval Device Applications of Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N07076

    The overall intent of this project is to develop a series of vector sensors for thin-line submarine towed array applications and down-select one for full evaluation via a comprehensive test campaign. Once the sensor is perfected, a production run of eight sensors will be performed so that a thin-line towed array section can be fabricated and tested. Each vector sensor under consideration will co ...

  8. Underwater Marine Species Mitigation System

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N07024

    Applied Physical Sciences Corp. (APS) will develop a deployable marine mammal mitigation system. The system will use vector hydrophones to passively detect, track, classify, and localize vocalizing mammals. Wavelet and conventional spectral analysis methods will be coupled to species-specific tracking algorithms. Behavioral clues from the acoustic data will be used to further reduce false alarm ...

  9. Uncertainty Estimation for Atmospheric Acoustic Propagation Prediction

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N08096

    The propagation of acoustic signatures from vehicles, aircraft, boats and artillery can have a significant impact on military operations. Specifically combatants need to reliably detect enemy acoustic signatures while at the same time concealing their own. The physical propagation environment, including surface and atmospheric parameters, may drastically alter the range at which an emitting object ...

  10. Efficient, Highly Maneuverable Artificial Fish for Stealthy Surveillance

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N08T030

    Experimental and computational studies have indicated the benefits of fish swimming propulsion for efficiency and fast maneuvering capability. The biological paradigm of using unsteady body motion to generate and manipulate flow vorticity for desired hydrodynamic thrust marks a shift from the quasi-steady treatments used in practice for the engineering of vehicle hydrodynamics. A key component to ...
