  2. Agnostic Wireless Communications Waveform Gateway

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N09T037

    Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform that inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. There is a need for a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability, and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. In response to the need for a flexible gateway, MaXentric and The Cooper Union have partnered ...

  3. Automated Situational Understanding for Undersea Warfare Decision Support

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N11AT018

    The Anti Submarine Warfare Commander (ASWC) needs an accurate operational picture and timely answers to critical questions in order to take effective action. They operate under severe time pressure, performing complex multi-component decision tasks, and in rapidly evolving and changing information and situational states. Our overarching technical objective for the proposed work is to provide an ef ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Deployable Autonomous Undersea Burial System

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: N11AT017

    Bottom mounted undersea surveillance systems are required by the Navy to Detect, Classify and Localize (DCL) underwater threats during operations and intelligence gathering. To meet the needs of future naval operations they must be easily deployable from a number of platforms and autonomously perform the DCL mission and autonomously report. The primary risks to these bottom mounted surveillance sy ...

  6. Flame Resistant HybridSil Matrices for Affordable, Next Generation Shipboard Carbon Fiber Composites

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N11AT014

    The objective of this Phase I STTR is to design and qualify affordable, flame resistant HybridSil copolymers that may be integrated within carbon fiber reinforced composites in place of brominated vinyl esters for improved fire resistance, negligible smoke toxicity, and enhanced mechanical properties. Equally important, down-selected copolymer matrices will provide tailorable room and low temperat ...

  7. Full Spectrum Zinc Oxide Nanowire Sensors By MOCVD

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N09T004

    Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) with its partner, Drexel University, propose to build upon our Phase I success and continue the development of electrically contacted zinc oxide nanowire (NW) arrays for highly efficient solar blind UV sensors, and implement them in a packaged prototype product. The properties of ZnO make it a very promising material for optoelectronic devices. In partic ...

  8. Fusing and Integrating Hard and Soft Engines (FISHE) for ASW Situational Understanding

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N11AT018

    Previous efforts to improve Anti-Submarine Warfare situational understanding have focused on developing fusion techniques for improving the tactical picture. These fusion processes primarily operate on"hard"sensor data that is amenable to software implementation. The Navy now seeks to develop tools to improve the ASW operator's understanding of higher level tactical situations, thereby improv ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
