  1. Ultra Wide Bandwidth High Dynamic Range Digital ISR Receivers for the submarine force

    SBC: SYSTEMS ENGINEERING ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: N101059

    This effort to improve the capabilities of the ESM system will increase the reliability and reduce lifecycle support costs of the Radar Wideband (RWB) subsystem on submarines. Analog to digital converter (A/D) based digital receivers will be applied to yield improvements in Radar signal acquisition and processing. In-phase and Quadrature (I/Q) data streams will be created from which intra pulse mo ...

  2. A Robust Heat Exchanger for Gas Turbine Exhaust Heat Recovery

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N111078

    Marine gas turbine engines are typically 30 to 40% efficient at full power resulting in 60 to 70% of the input energy being exhausted to the environment as waste heat. These engines are even less efficient at partial power conditions where they often operate. Bottoming cycles, such as organic Rankine cycles, can utilize this waste heat to produce useful work, improving overall efficiency by 10 to ...

  3. Turbo-Rankine Power System for Deep Sea Hydrothermal Vents

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N111071

    Hydrothermal vents emit large amounts of hot water, which has the potential to produce electric power. This type of power source can enable remote sea sensors, recharge autonomous underwater vehicles, and facilitate a variety of deep sea activities. Developing a power system for this application is challenging because the environment is extremely corrosive, mineral precipitation and biological act ...

  4. Field-Serviceable Superconducting Cable Housing

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N121077

    Legacy copper-based power distribution and degaussing cables will not be able to meet the future requirements of Navy ships and submarines. While cable systems employing high temperature superconductors (HTS) have the potential to meet this need, further development work is required to improve the performance and increase the technology readiness level of key system components. The proposed work f ...

  5. A Low Cost Electromagnetic Induction Ground Fault Detector

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N112133

    Cabling faults can be difficult to identify and locate when a large number of interconnections are used such as in the shipboard Machinery Control System. Ungrounded systems further complicate diagnosis, since signal voltages and currents are small amplitude. It often takes a considerable amount of time to identify and locate the fault, and the equipment capability can be substantially reduced whi ...

  6. Compact Airborne Acoustic Transmitter for Buried Object Stimulation

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N121088

    Landmines and buried improvised explosive devices (IED) represent a clear and present danger to the modern U.S. warfighter. The ability to survey a potentially hazardous area from the air using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-mounted optical acoustic system has the potential to greatly reduce causality rates. However, existing acoustic sources are inadequate to stimulate the earth at the necessar ...

  7. TAC PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS FORWARD-LOOKING AUTONOMOUS SENSORS AND ALGORITHMS FOR TLAM-C.

    SBC: The Associated Corp            Topic: N/A

    TAC PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS FORWARD-LOOKING AUTONOMOUS SENSORS AND ALGORITHMS FOR TLAM-C. THE CURRENT TLAM-C USES A TERRAIN MAPPING RADAR ALTIMETER AND CORRELATES THE SENSED AREA AT KEY WAYPOINTS WITH A STORED DIGITAL REPRESENTATION OF THE TERRAIN AREA AT THE WAYPOINTS TO PROVIDE MID-COURSE AND TERMINAL GUIDANCE CORRECTION TO THE INERTIAL NA ...

  8. THIS PROPOSAL ENVISIONS DETERMINING THE FEASIBILITY OF USING PHOTOFABRICATION TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCE LOW COST SEAWATER CORROSION SENSORS.

    SBC: Photofabrication Technology            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ENVISIONS DETERMINING THE FEASIBILITY OF USING PHOTOFABRICATION TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCE LOW COST SEAWATER CORROSION SENSORS. UNLIKE CONVENTIONAL ELECTROCHEMICAL CORROSION SENSORS WHICH MEASURE ONLY INSTANTANEOUS CORROSION RATE, THE PROPOSED SENSORS WILL MEASURE BOTH INSTANTANEOUS RATE AND CUMULATIVE CORROSION. THE TENTATIVE DESIGN OF THESE SENSORS IS VERY COMPACT, ABOUT THE SIZE OF A P ...

  9. High-Vacuum Package for MEMS Inertial Sensors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N12AT008

    High-sensitivity resonant vibratory microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors are typically vacuum packaged in discreet packages. Wafer-scale vacuum packaging offers size, weight, and cost advantages, and the packages are more shock and vibration tolerant. However, the high internal pressures and leak rates achieved to date through wafer-scale vacuum packaging have rendered this an approach su ...

  10. Low-Cost UUV Deployed Self-Scuttling Acoustic Source for Littoral Bottom Surveys

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N12AT017

    Ocean bottom acoustic surveys are an important component of a number of littoral missions. Knowledge of local ocean bottom acoustic properties is necessary for modern anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and mine and other buried object detection missions to be successful. Bottom-hugging Unmanned Undersea Vehicles (UUVs) are a promising tool for conducting these littoral surveys. However, these missions r ...
