  1. Enhanced Riverine Drifter

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT024

    The Navy has need of assessing the river environment including bathymetry, flow velocity profile, and navigational obstructions. While improvements in measurement fidelity and reduction in cost have come about by the use of multiple drifters, measurement quality is lost due to convergent drifter trajectories, and cost/risk remains high due to personnel effort required for deployment. An autonomous ...

  2. Energy Scaling of Ultrashort Pulse (USP) High Energy Fiber Lasers Through Temporal Control

    SBC: Raydiance, Inc.            Topic: N09T013

    Phase Tailoring represents a unique and novel approach to significantly driving up pulse energies in all-fiber ultrafast laser systems. One of the challenges of working in the ultrafast regime is that the amplification and compression part of the chirped pulse amplification scheme can cause a variety of effects that will damage pulse quality and must be accounted for, such as B-integral, SOP and o ...

  3. Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Underwater Secure Text Messaging and Diver Locater


    Yotta Navigation and The Ohio State University propose to develop a complete diver text messaging and locator system. The system will securely transmit preformatted and free-text messages, and will be able to accurately determine range and bearing, at distances of up to 1000 meters. This system consists of two major components. A multimode receiver and transmitter, mounted on a swimmer delivery ve ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. GENerative Waveform Agnostic Gateway (GENWAG) architecture


    The Department of Defense (DoD) requires a large number of gateways for inter-networking between disparate waveforms. Until now gateways are designed for specific waveform domains, this approach although simple and quick has led to a lot of duplication of effort. In this proposal UtopiaCompression (UC) in collaboration with UCLA, Command and Control Technologies Corporation and the Boeing Company ...

  6. Large Eddy Simulations of Hot Supersonic Jets for Aeroacoustics

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N09T008

    LES will be used to calculate flow and noise issuing from realistic engine configurations such as realistic engine nozzle throats, serrated nozzles, straight ramp diffusers, and over/under expanded operation. Nozzle geometry and operating conditions can be specified by the government with the objective of validating noise prediction capability on the basis of realistic parameters. Where necessary, ...

  7. Innovative Application of Urban ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) Imagery for High Fidelity Training Devices

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: N09BT038

    The hindrances to full use of geospecific imagery are the labor required to create the databases, and limits on the rendering capacity of current image generators (IGs), both in polygon count and texture volume. Our solution is to create modeling tools to automate the application of ISR imagery on geospecific urban geometry and to use advanced rending techniques to visualize dense urban scenes in ...

  8. Full Spectrum Zinc Oxide Nanowire Sensors By MOCVD


    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 ...

  9. Development of Novel Phase Shifterless RF Phase Array Antenna Systems

    SBC: Tahoe RF Semiconductor Inc.,            Topic: N09T035

    Tahoe RF"s will develop"BeamDirect,"a phased array beam forming & beam steering system which incorporates the LO Phase Shifting technology developed during the Phase I activities. The system will perform as a broad band phase array antenna receiver from 100 MHz to a 6 GHz in conjunction with a circular broadband antenna. This system will provide exceptional SNR and BER and is targeted to improve i ...

  10. Trained Network Force Measurement System for Aircraft/Store Interfaces

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N09T003

    This proposal addresses the development of new methodology and supporting technology to predict reaction forces in weapon store connections of naval aircraft. The proposed methodology utilizes a strain gage-based measurement technique in which a series of sensors are calibrated with a set of known loading configurations. The sensitivity matrix relating the measured strains to the loads forms the c ...
