  1. Innovative Gas Turbine Engine Propulsion

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In a ship's bilge, water mixes with oils, cleaners, and other liquids and dissolved solids to form a complex wastewater solution harmful to the marine environment. Naval vessels carry onboard oil/water separators (OWS) to prevent discharging oily wastesoverboard. OWS systems can remove oil from water; however, serious problems arise when other contaminants, like detergents, are present. These in ...

  2. Large Format Resistive Arrays (LFRA) for Infrared Scene Projectors (IRSP)

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Oil lubricated gearboxes can be very costly with oil life and maintenance issues, complex sealing, seal shelf life issues, and oil sump requirements. Barber-Nichols Inc. will investigate alternative lubrication concepts to reduce these costs.Investigation areas will be water lubrication, dry or semi-dry lubrication, and material selection. These concepts have potential of significantly reducing ...

  3. Oxygen Source for Underwater Vehicle Fuel Cells

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Pure oxygen is usually produced through air separation and is primarily stored as a liquid or compressed gas. Generation and storage of oxygen for use in fuel cells in self-contained underwater vehicles is particularly difficult due to the absence of airand the need to limit space and weight. There is a need for development of a dense controllable oxygen source for such applications. An alterna ...

  4. Interior Noise Reduction for Armored Vehicles

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I CTI demonstrated an innovative, frequency-agile laser source that could tune throughout the midwave infrared spectral region (4-6 um). The source was based on a Cr:ZnSe laser pumping a ZnGeP2 optical parametric oscillator (OPO). Advantages ofthis system include that both the laser and OPO operate well at room-temperature with only passive cooling, the system is amendable to power scal ...

  5. Cycloidal Fan for Low-Noise Air Management

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Active imaging in the short- and mid-wave infrared has well-known benefits versus shorter wavelengths: eye safety, better visibility through battlefield obscurants, high atmospheric trans-mission, and reduced background emission. However, there are nosuitable imaging detectors at eye-safe wavelengths. CTI proposes a nonlinear sum-frequency generator (SFG) to convert an image at 1.55 mm to a shorte ...

  6. High-Performance Optical Fiber-Based Meteorological Sensors

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    In the Phase I study, a protype instrument, the aerosolvaporization spectrometer (AVS)was evaluated for the ability toclassify airborne aerosol particles by their incandescentsignal. The instrument uses a diode pumped Nd:YAG laser at 1.06u wavelength to excite the particles. The scattering signal ismonitored from all particles, and black carbon particles absorbsufficient energy to incandesce, and ...

  7. Fast Response Sensor for the Measurement of the Optical Properties and Carbon Content of Organic Aerosols

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Droplet Measurement Technologies, Inc. proposes to demonstrate the viability of a newtechnique for measuring carbon mass on a particle-by-particle basis. The methodologyutilizes a combination of light scattering and emission to differentiate carbonaerosolsfrom other types of particles and quantify the mass of these particles overa size range from 0.05 micrometers to greater than 5 micrometers. The ...

  8. Electronic Warfare Adaptive Spatial/Spectral Cancellation

    SBC: DEEGAN RESEARCH GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Proposed for development is an escape trunk cofferdam that is made of a set of rigid (composite sandwich) cylindrical sectors joined by longitudinal sealing joints. The cofferdam is attached to the escape trunk's bubble skirt by an attachment ring whichallows the sections of the cofferdam to be staged below the hatch before it is opened. When the hatch is opened, the sectors are raised through t ...

  9. An Air Deployed Multi-cycle Ocean Profiler for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance

    SBC: Engineered Coatings, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Engineered Coatings, Inc. (ECI) proposes in Phase II to scale and demonstrate, on hardware components, a novel thin-film composite coating technology that will offer improved fretting wear resistance for moving mechanical components in U.S. Navy aircraftapplications. Based upon the technical feasibility (low friction, low wear, and galling resistance) demonstrated in the Phase I program for TiC & ...

    SBIR Phase II 2001 Department of DefenseNavy


    This Phase II effort will research, develop, and evaluate a prototype SuperManual, a personally adaptive electronic maintenance manual (IETM) that is automatically constructed from ordinary manuals. It will accomplish this by combining and advancing twostate-of-art technologies for adaptive text search and presentation. (1) Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA), an automatic machine-learning technology t ...
