  1. Holographic Optical Element for Through the Air Link Optical Component (TALOC)

    SBC: 4S - SILVERSWORD SOFTWARE AND SERVICES, LLC            Topic: N192056

    Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWAP-C) are significant influencers in the design and operation of mobile Free Space Optical (FSO) communications hardware. As FSO technology evolves to applications for smaller vehicles such as Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV), the need for reduced size and weight optics becomes critical. Large, heavy glass optical elements are required in today’s FSO units to acquire t ...

  2. Short Range Through the Air Link Optical Component (TALOC)

    SBC: 4S - SILVERSWORD SOFTWARE AND SERVICES, LLC            Topic: N192075

    The tactical weaknesses of Radio Frequency (RF) communications have been thoroughly established and adversaries are becoming increasingly capable of exploiting them. Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) are particularly vulnerable to the limitations of RF communication because of the need for continuous communication links. Missions involving RAS have a lower chance of success in RF denied enviro ...

  3. Advanced Cooling Technologies for Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) Terminals

    SBC: Roccor, LLC            Topic: N172137

    The next generation Multifunctional Information Distribution System Joint Tactical Radio System (MIDS JTRS) is currently undergoing an upgrade to integrate new Tactical Targeting Network Technology (TTNT) capabilities. The high-power processors required generate more heat than previous shop replaceable units (SRUs). The upgraded MIDS JTRS radio terminal will generate up to approximately 30% higher ...

  4. Crystallographic orientation mapping of minimally prepeared large nonplanar surfaces

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N192072

    The importance of determining crystallographic orientation information over large areas has existed within the materials science community for solutions to a variety of applications in aerospace and otherwise since the connection of MTRs and material performance was discovered, but it isn’t until recently that a feasible solution has existed. In this work, MRL will demonstrate the feasibility of ...

  5. Rapid Repair of Corroded Fastener Holes (19-RD-189)

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: N192085

    In the naval aircraft many disparate materials are subject to galvanic corrosion, due to the marine environment. Some of these aircraft have hybrid (carbon fiber composite/aluminum) designs that exhibit accelerated corrosion damage, compared to legacy all-metal frames, due to galvanic interaction between the fastener, the composite skin, and the aluminum frame. In the Phase I SBIR program, UES Inc ...

  7. Ceramic Durable Solid Lubricant Coating for Firearms

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N192057

    Medium caliber aircraft guns like the M197 rotary cannon experience multiple points of friction, needing preventative maintenance cycles to address wear and corrosion. Wet firearm lubricants like CLP and TW25B must be regularly removed and re-applied because they collect sand, dust, and carbon, increasing wear on the part. In contrast, durable solid lubricants (DSLs) can be applied as one-time, pe ...

  8. Nano-Hardened Electroplated Coatings for Improved Rotary Cannon Lifespan


    Rotary cannon type weapons, such as the M197 electric cannon, currently require servicing every 28 days in order to remove abrasive particulate and to relubricate the rotary drum. The Navy is currently seeking a one-time application coating, applied at the time of manufacturing or retrofit, which will at least double the time between servicing to 56 days or more. Mainstream Engineering proposes to ...

  9. Large Eddy Simulation (LES) Flow Solver Suitable for Modeling Conjugate Heat Transfer

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19BT027

    Accurate prediction heat transfer in gas turbine components subject to cooling requires high fidelity modeling of heat transfer in the presence of high Reynolds number turbulent flow. The cooling internal to the blades results in sustained temperature gradients within the structural parts, from low temperature in the interior of the structure to increasingly higher temperature closer to the surfac ...

  10. Mobile Phased Array Antenna Using Through the Air Link Optical Component (TALOC) Technology

    SBC: 4S - SILVERSWORD SOFTWARE AND SERVICES, LLC            Topic: N192082

    4S has developed a Free Space Optical (FSO) system identified as Through-the-Air Link Optical Component (TALOC). TALOC enables a mesh network that constitutes an expert system with distributed processors capable of fusing all relative distance and angle measurements into a highly accurate 3D map of the overall mission group. Using the computed 3D map, the mission group is able to organize itself i ...
