  1. Advanced-Architecture Compressor/Expanders for Energy Storage Applications

    SBC: Bright Energy Storage Technologies, LLP            Topic: N11AT028

    Bright Energy Storage Technologies and the Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory at Colorado State University propose to demonstrate the feasibility of a custom reversible compressor design for use in compressed air energy storage systems. The design proposed combines a very lightweight rotary compressor design with extremely high flow volumes, allowing a highly efficient device at extremely lo ...

  2. Compact Radar Technology For Over the Horizon Small-Boat and Semi-Submersible Detection and Tracking

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N11AT002

    As with all service branches within the Department of Defense (DoD), the mission objectives of the Navy are expanding to encompass not only major combat operations, but also asymmetric warfare scenarios. This expanding role requires the Navy to increasingly operate in littoral waters where effective identification of small craft and semi-submersibles is a critical capability for both fleet protect ...

  3. High Density, High Efficiency Electrical Power Generation System for UAS Applications

    SBC: Innovative Power Solutions, LLC            Topic: N11AT009

    UAVs are carrying out missions which were once reserved to manned aircraft only. These missions require that the UAV carries more and more sophisticated equipment which consumes large amount of electric power. The power requirement vary, and sometime consist of both AC power with a fixed frequency, and high voltage DC power. As power requirement grow the need for an electrical power system which i ...

  4. High Resolution Measurement of the Flow Velocity Field in a Supersonic Jet Plume

    SBC: PRINCETON SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N11AT004

    Modern supersonic jet aircraft engines produce a high amplitude noise field with complicated characteristics due to turbulent behaviors of the hot jet. Researchers need better understanding of the turbulent structures in the jet plume to develop treatments to engines that might reduce the noise emissions. A significant obstacle to making these simulations practical and realistic for engine design ...

  5. Highly-controllable, Dense Carbon Nanotube Arrays for Ultracapacitor Applications

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD10T004

    The Navy and the U.S. Military as a whole will be challenged to find innovative solutions to ever-rising peak power demands stemming from the introduction of electricity-driven vessels and new directed energy weapons in the coming decade. Circuit protection from voltage variation is also a concern both on large and miniaturized scales. To address these needs, ADA Technologies, Inc. (ADA), in colla ...

  6. Micro-Plasma Turbulence Velocimetry (uPTV)

    SBC: Wavefront            Topic: N11AT004

    Non-invasive methods are required to measure the turbulence in supersonic jet plumes in 3-D with high temporal and spatial resolutions. The turbulent supersonic jet plume changes rapidly both in space and time, and hence any viable approach must acquire the entire 3-D velocity field at even faster speed for comparison with the temporal and spatial velocity field solved in Large Eddy Simulations. ...

  7. Modeling Tools for the Development of Innovative Wavelength Division Multiplexed (WDM) Local Area Networks (LAN)

    SBC: Defense Photonics Group, Inc.            Topic: N11AT008

    Analysis of optical network performance provides key insights and enables comparison of technology and architecture alternatives beings considered for implementation of WDM LAN-based optical backbone networks within on-board aircraft platforms. Additional development of the models and algorithms used in commercial simulation and optimization tools is needed to characterize the complex interactions ...

  8. Scenario Based Tactical Radio Channel Simulator

    SBC: dBmCorp, Inc            Topic: N11AT038

    dBm Corp in consortium with Rutgers University and XPRT propose to develop an NxN RF Emulator Matrix (N2REM) that is based on 1 to N channel implementation rather than 1 to 1 to enable the implementation of complex scenarios. This will allow a given node to have an independent RF relationship with every other node in the matrix. It is proposed to develop an architecture using N2REM as its core, le ...

  9. Wireless Torque Sensor for Condition Based Maintenance

    SBC: Albido Corporation            Topic: N11AT030

    In recent years, the need for highly reliable, durable and non-intrusive systems for monitoring the health condition of naval structures becomes more and more recognized. Of particular importance is the condition based maintenance of Navy rotating machinery (motors, generators, pumps, gear systems, etc.). Such Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems should be able to detect failures in their ea ...
