  1. A Fast-Response, Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection System for Small Heavy Fuel Engines with Multi-Fuel Capabilities

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT033

    Advances in electronically controlled injection technologies for diesel engines have provided a method to improve medium- to heavy-duty engine performance through increased injection pressures, multiple injections, and injection rate shaping. Although these injection systems have been primarily limited to larger engines, the ability to rapidly and precisely meter fuel for smaller engines is partic ...

  2. Advanced Materials for the Design of Lightweight JP5/JP8/DS2 Fueled Engines for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: Northwest Uld, Inc.            Topic: N10AT001

    Northwest UAV Propulsion Systems proposes using our purpose built heavy fuel engine designed and built in the USA for small unmanned aerial systems in the tier 2 & 3 class. We will be adding a lightweight ceramic material set combined with FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and heavy fuel atomizer (IRAD Project) to create a lightweight engine for a SUAS or STUAS class UAVs. The Ceramic material set is ...

  3. Advanced Ship-handling Simulators

    SBC: D'Angelo Technologies, LLC            Topic: N18AT014

    There is a need to create an automated, adaptive, real time coaching module that can integrate the Conning Officer Virtual Environment (COVE) along with the associated Intelligent Tutor System (COVE-ITS) and the Conning-Officer Ship Handling Assessment (COSA) together. By automating the evaluation process, Surface Warfare Officers (SWOs) will have the opportunity to use the COVE simulations more f ...

  4. A Hierarchical and Extendable, Component-Based Simulation Tool for Aircraft Thermal Management Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N19BT025

    The requirements for thermal management on tactical aircraft systems have reached a level at which integrated system design must be considered early in the aircraft design process. An integrated propulsion, power and thermal modeling and simulation design approach is necessary for reduced size, weight and power requirements. At the same time, there is an urgent need for capabilities that enable an ...

  5. AI-Driven, Secure Navy Mission Planning via Deep Reinforcement Learning and Attribute-Based Multi-Level Security

    SBC: EH GROUP            Topic: N19BT029

    Current mission planning systems allow strike planners and operations centers to perform time-sensitive strike planning, execution monitoring, and validate mission effects using XML-based tools that visualize time critical attack plan and track plan status vs. execution. In this proposed STTR Phase I design for the Next Generation Navy Mission Planning (NGNMPS) system, we will identify expanded op ...

  6. Analysis and Modeling of Foreign Object Damage (FOD) in Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)

    SBC: N&R ENGNERING MGT SUPPORT SVCS            Topic: N10AT010

    The Phase I deliverable will be a physic-based model which represents a CMC gas turbine component concomitantly at the material level and the structural level. This model will be probabilistically analyzed to account for the uncertainties in material properties and the uncertainties in the size and impact velocities of possible foreign objects (FOD). A ceramic material must display sufficient capa ...

  7. Atomic Triaxial Magnetometer

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N19AT006

    Vescent Photonics and MIT Lincoln Labs (MIT-LL) propose to develop a quantum-based vector magnetometer with low size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP+C) for Navy applications. The proposed system will rely on probing magnetically-sensitive, atomic-like transitions of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond to provide stable, high-bandwidth readout of the vector magnetic field with sub-picotesla sen ...

  8. Automated Human and System Performance Assessment in Operational Environments

    SBC: ADVANCED ANTI-TERROR TECHNOLOGIES CORP            Topic: N11AT001

    Our Fused-Realities-Assessments-Modules(FRAM) enables innovative new levels and types of automated quantification strategies for combining human and system performance in real-time for fused performance monitoring and after-action-review purposes. FRAM accomplishes this by fusing output of normative models of behaviors (cognitive/procedural/team), human states (physiological/affective), system sta ...

  9. Autonomous Navigation for the Hull Bug Ship Hull Grooming System

    SBC: SeaRobotics Corporation            Topic: N18AT020

    The underpinning science and sensing associated with autonomous navigation is advancing on numerous fronts. The navigation capability required for ship hull grooming in a low visibility environment is a natural application of this technology. Enormous benefit will be realized in the public and private sectors of the shipping industry. The economic and environmental impact realized using proactive ...

  10. Compact robust testbed for cold-atom clock and sensor applications

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: N13AT018

    As strontium and other alkaline-earth metals become increasingly attractive for ultracold-atom applications, there is a growing need to develop compact, robust systems for cooling, trapping, and studying these elements. In this proposal, ColdQuanta will team with Dr. Jun Ye at JILA and the University of Colorado at Boulder to develop a portable, turn-key system that can produce, utilize, and optic ...
