  1. Naval Device Applications of Relaxor Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N02066

    This project is the development of a single crystal underwater acoustic modem transducer for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV) which is compact in size, operates at low to moderately low center frequencies, in a broad band frequency range to accommodate state-of-the-art binary, FSK and spread spectrum signaling schemes that promote covertness. The device exploits the high coupling coefficient an ...

  2. Solution for Unmanned Underwater Vehicle Interfaces

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: N04092

    As the Navy proceeds to update our shipboard assets through the fielding of new and innovative ship designs, the need for a modular, adaptable, multi-purpose warship becomes apparent. The Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) program is intended to field a multi-purpose, mission-adaptable combat ship for littoral near-coastal warfare, and to yield a platform ship capable of sustaining unmanned, automated sy ...

  3. Ram Air Turbine Driven Power and Cooling Unit for Enhanced EA-18 Pod Effectiveness

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N04239

    CFDRC has completed preliminary design of a next generation Ram Air Turbine (RAT) suitable for operation in the Navy’s next generation electronic warfare pod. The RAT will be capable of delivering 60 KVA at a sea level flight speed of 280 knots. The unit will also be capable of providing adequate liquid coolant to maintain electronic component operating temperatures below specified levels. Du ...

  4. Significant Optical Manufacturing Advancement (SOMA) Process

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: B02004

    The Significant Optical Manufacturing Advancement (SOMA) program will capture the principles of Design for Assembly (DFA) and apply them to the fabrication of precision optical systems. This will provide the Navy with the ability to design optical systems that can be assembled efficiently for much lower costs. We will use the DFA discipline of axiomatic design coupled with optical design equations ...

  5. Probabilistic Error Estimation In Model-Based Predictions


    Modern ship designs can only be successful if the ship can survive in a hostile environment. External threats for a ship can originate from underwater detonations, anti-ship missiles, and even low tech weapons like in the terrorist attack on USS Cole. These threats become even more important as the focal point for naval operations has shifted towards littoral areas, where ships are exposed to a ...

  6. Active Control of Lean Blowout Using an ANN-Based On-Line Direct Controller

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N04126

    Combustor Lean BlowOut (LBO) is a significant challenge in modern military gas turbine combustors. LBO can occur either during rapid engine deceleration or during operation at idle conditions with water/steam ingestion. Current practice is to design adequate safety margins to avoid the onset of blowout. However, significant engine performance improvements can be realized though the development o ...

  7. Metal Passivization to Resist Corrosion

    SBC: VISOTEK, INC.            Topic: N03078

    The Navy currently desires to extend drydocking cycles to 8 years. In order to do this, corrosion must be controlled and mitigated because it is the driving factor behind drydocking requirements. The proposed technology aims to significantly enhance localized corrosion resistance of contained areas of newly built ship structures as well as repair of used vessels. Localized corrosion of painted s ...

  8. Energy Finite Element Analysis System


    New Naval initiatives, like the DD(X) program, impose stringent noise and vibration targets, and require assessment and reduction of noise due to machinery, flow, and propulsion. A typical surface ship structure exhibits thousands of normal modes below 30Hz. Thus, the frequency range of interest from signature and hull vibration objectives extends far beyond what existing finite element based me ...

  9. Extreme Computing with Light, Low Power, and Small Equipment (ECLIPSE)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N02047

    The military’s recognition of the need to share battlefield intelligence between all branches of the armed services has led to the development of the Joint Fires Network (JFN). In JFN, intelligence data from the many sensors deployed must be assimilated for targeting information. Computers perform some of these operations while people perform others. The bottom line is that there are massive ...

  10. Physics-based Modeling of Acoustic Reverberation in the Littoral Environment

    SBC: Marine Acoustics, Inc.            Topic: N03T011

    Underwater acoustic modeling plays an essential role in the design, development, test, and operation of sonar systems. Active acoustic clutter can increase the sonar false alert rate or equivalently decrease the probability of detection/classification, and is a key issue in the development and utility of active sonar systems. The ability to predict reverberation and clutter is inseparably tied to ...
