  1. fORE: fNIRS Operational Readiness Estimation

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: DHA19B001

    Thestate of warfighters (whether theyarefatigued, distracted,and/or stressed)and of theteam (whether theyare workingtogethereffectivelyand cohesively)greatly impact thelikelihood ofmission success. The brain isan excellent source of data with which to assess individualand team states. Unfortunately,current technologiescannot supportcontinuous neural statemonitoring of warfightersacross themany dif ...

  4. Non-destructive Webbing Strength Indicator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N19BT032

    Webbing is strong, woven material that is used to secure cargo as well as for safety equipment such as seat belts, harnesses, and parachute rigging. Due to its extensive use in Military applications, the strength of the webbing is a key component of equipment design, especially in the case of safety gear that protects soldiers, as lives may be dependent on the strength and proper performance of th ...

  5. Multi-scale Physics-based Modeling of Particle-Impact Erosion of CMCs

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N19BT033

    Sand particles ingested into aeroengines can impinge on components made of ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs) and cause structural damage including long-term erosion. Experimental analysis of erosion typically focuses on the damage footprint and mass loss and is limited in the range of operating parameters that can be examined. Hence, high-fidelity modeling of the erosion process is essential to der ...

  6. Three Dimensional Field of Light Display

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N19BT036

    As the Navy continues to reduce manpower requirements associated with operating ever-increasing technologically complex systems, new methods that enable natural and intuitive interaction with 3D data are required to reduce overall operator workload and to enhance situational awareness. Operators who cannot quickly access and interpret data are prone to errors ranging from missing critical data dur ...

  8. Fully Automated Quantum Cascade Laser Design Aided by Machine Learning with up to 100X Design Cycle Time Reduction

    SBC: IRGLARE, LLC            Topic: N20AT003

    A Quantum Cascade Laser's (QCL) core material is a series of nanometer scale layers of conduction band barrier and well materials designed to induce lasing electron energy levels. The key design feature of a QCL is the ability to repeat the laser core superlattice design to cascade electrons through the superlattice repetitions by repeated stimulated emission. Such designs are generally carefully ...

  9. Ambient Quantum Processor compatible with an All-photonic Repeater Architecture

    SBC: CATALYTE, LLC            Topic: N20AT005

    The significance of the problem is to deploy combined quantum communication-and-processing near to Navy applications.   Our approach, when successful, would enable small, ambient operating QPUs to be connected at a distance by quantum-secure communication.  Unlike bulky optical components and in-contrast to cryogenic qubits, our system, using in situ generated photons, offers a practical s ...

  10. Advanced, High-Performance, Low-Noise Propeller Designs for Small UxS

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N20AT006

    Improved propeller designs for Small Unmanned Aerial Systems are needed to improve performance and reduce acoustic emissions. Traditional propeller design methods don’t take advantage of advances in coupled fluid, structure and acoustics computational design methods nor advances in high strength, high modulus materials to extend performance of propellers and reduce noise emissions. In the propos ...
