  1. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: A16AT004

    Laboratory investigations have suggested that acoustically or vibrationally inducing motion in buried targets can aid in improving target detectability through a characteristic response related to differential target motion. This gain is realized by adding an additional degree of freedom, modulation due to motion in the GPR return signal, to use as a discriminating feature. The AKELA team is propo ...

  2. AC Plasma Sensor For High Enthalpy Hypersonic Test Facilities

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF17AT002

    Spectral Energies and the University of Notre Dame is developing a new class of point-wise sensors for high-enthalpy conditions that rely on the use of a weakly ionized AC discharge between two electrodes as the main sensing element. The advantages of this approach include a native high bandwidth with a theoretical maximum in excess of 15 MHz and a simple mechanical design that is inherently robus ...

  3. Adaptive and Smart Materials for Advanced Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT018

    Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies covering a broad range of technologies and processes have been under continuous and accelerating development since the 80s. While there are still fundamental hurdles such as low production rates and small sizes, AM holds tremendous promise in terms of revolutionizing manufacturing. Recent trends include direct-printing and incorporating sensors and electr ...

  4. Adaptive Fleet Synthetic Scenario Research

    SBC: KAB LABORATORIES INC.            Topic: N10AT044

    Synthetic scenario-based training of Navy personnel in the use of Navy SIGINT/IO systems has helped to reduce training costs, and it has enabled the personnel to be trained in an environment that sufficiently approximates real-world situations that could not otherwise be accomplished within the class room. However, scenario development is highly complex and involves a great deal of human effo ...

  5. Adaptive Learning for Stall Pre-cursor Identification and General Impending Failure Prediction

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: N10AT008

    Frontier Technology, Inc. (FTI) and Northeastern University propose to investigate and develop an innovative approach to predict stall events of aircraft engines prior to occurrence and in sufficient time to allow the FADEC controller to adjust engine variables. The team will utilize vector quantization and neural network techniques to develop accurate models of engine behavior that will be used t ...

  6. Adaptive Optics controlled nonlinear propagation of USLP

    SBC: Advanced Systems & Technologies Inc            Topic: N17AT024

    Filamentation of ultra-short laser pulse propagation in non-linear media offers significant potentials allowing to address numerous problems in military and commercial sectors. However, practical implementation of this requires an ability to control the USLP at its propagation through inhomogeneous media, like turbulent atmosphere. On the basis of our approach for combating turbulence effects on p ...

  7. Adaptive Optics for Nonlinear Atmospheric Propagation of Laser Pulses

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N17AT024

    Ultra-short pulse lasers have advantages over continuous-wave lasers for directed-energy applications due to the high peak powers that can be reached. Directed-energy weapons are profoundly limited by the aberrations caused by atmospheric turbulence and current adaptive optics can correct for these aberrations only when the propagation medium is reciprocal. Unfortunately, nonlinear effects in the ...

  8. Additive Manufacturing for Microwave Vacuum Electron Device Cost Reduction

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: N16AT010

    The Department of the Navy has a need for the development of an additive manufacturing (AM) process for key vacuum electronic device components to meet on-demand, flexible, and affordable manufacturing requirements. The developed manufacturing method has a potential to reduce cost of vacuum electronics by as much as 70% as well as simplify and hence expedite production process of these devices by ...

  10. Additive Manufacturing of 17-4 PH Stainless Steel Metal Matrix Composites using Nickel functionalized Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Shepra, Inc.            Topic: N16AT007

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) has a potential to significantly reduce the cost and lead time associated with the maintenance and sustainment issues faced by the US Navy. However, current materials such as 17-4 PH Stainless Steel typically achieve half the required mechanical properties when additively manufactured, thus limiting the use of AM in critical parts. Recent advancements in carbon nanotube ...
