  3. A Discrete-Element Method for Reactive Particle Transport and Adhesion in a Gas Turbine Engine

    SBC: New England Research & Development, LLC            Topic: N171034

    There are numerous conditions where gas turbine engines ingest small particulates. Of particular concern are the particles (~1-10 micrometer) that are ejected into the atmosphere as volcanic ash. Ingestion of these particles has numerous detrimental effects. Particle collisions cause abrasion of compressor blades, leading to loss of efficiency. Ingested particles that partially or completely melt ...

  4. Solid State Radar Emitter Identification

    SBC: SYSTEMS ENGINEERING ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: N171043

    Advances in semiconductor technologies, including Gallium nitride (GaN) and Silicon carbide (SiC), are allowing for the wider use of solid-state devices in modern radar systems. These devices include direct digital synthesizers and their associated memories, i.e. numerical look up tables for reprogrammable radar parameters, as well as solid-state power amplifiers (SSPA). Since solid-state systems ...

  5. Reliable Target Area of Uncertainty from an Underwater Acoustic Source(s)

    SBC: Marine Acoustics, Inc.            Topic: N172122

    The overall and principal objective in the Phase I effort will be determining the feasibility of an algorithmic approach to yield reliable and reduced target AOUs in an air deployed multi-static active sonar field. The feasibility will be based on the realized accuracy gains; achieving real-time data turn-around; and the computer information processing (IP) resources needed for estimating AOUs in ...

  6. Automated Launch and Recovery of Un-tethered, Mini-Unmanned Underwater Vehicles from Unmanned Surface Vehicles

    SBC: SYSTEMS ENGINEERING ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: N04127

    The Navys Fleet-Class Common Unmanned Surface Vessel (CUSV) demands associated subsystems function with robust reliability and minimal operator intervention in order to operate at peak effectiveness. Mine Warfares (MIW) inherently hazardous nature requires particular focus on reducing manning requirements and simplifying operator machine interface (OMI) in order to minimize danger to personnel. By ...

  7. Electrically Functional Garment Systems: Developing a Smart Integrated Uniform Prototype Garment

    SBC: PROPEL, LLC            Topic: N143127

    Integration of the sailor into the Navys system of systems onboard ship and off will enable improvements to the availability of mission-critical information to both the sailor and the Command. This integration is to be accomplished through embedding electronic system functionality into the sailors uniform, enabling what Propel has named the Smart Integrated Uniform(SIU). Through selectively integr ...

  8. Multi-ship Sonar Bistatic Automatic Active Localization

    SBC: Marine Acoustics, Inc.            Topic: N151055

    Phase II of this SBIR research effort fosters the next step of introduction and application in the development of a bistatic capability for surface and submarine Mid-Frequency (MF) active sonar systems. This development will enhance anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capability in strike group or coordinated surface and submarine ASW operations. Phase II builds on progress made in Phase I to develop and ...

  9. Enhanced Cell Designs for Improved Internal Heat Transfer for High Rate and Power Capable, Large-Format Batteries

    SBC: K2 ENERGY SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N151073

    A high energy density, high power cylindrical cell suitable for pulsed power operation with a capacity between 15 and 20 Ah will be developed. The cell will utilize a lithium iron phosphate chemistry and will utilize both internal and external thermal management technology to minimize temperature rise even under high power operation.

  10. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...
