  1. 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 ...

  2. Ultrahigh-Bandwidth Robust Performance Diagnostics for Rotating Detonation Engines

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF19AT011

    Spectral Energies proposes to design a multisensory diagnostic suite for measurements within elevated-pressure RDEs. This sensor will utilize tunable-laser absorption spectroscopy to measure temperature, pressure and H2O concentrations in the annulus of a rocket-RDE and background-oriented schlieren imaging system for flow density gradient imaging to provide time resolved information about the sho ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Autonomous Decision Making via Hierarchical Brain Emulation-- 19-009

    SBC: Metron, Incorporated            Topic: AF19AT009

    The objective of this project is to develop human intelligence-inspired algorithms that exploit multi-modal sources of low and high quality data to achieve a series of objectives such as detection, localization, tracking, and classification. A Bayesian model-based hierarchical adaptive decision making (HADM) algorithm will be developed which includes multiple levels of decision making organized in ...

  5. HIGH STRENGTH, WATER-FILLED CERAMIC NANOCOMPOSITE MICROCAPSULES WITH LOW PERMEABILITY FOR SELF-SEALING FUEL BLADDERS

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N19BT030

    During the proposed Navy STTR program, NanoSonic and Virginia Tech will design and synthesize innovative, high strength ceramic nanocomposite microcapsules filled with > 80 volume percent water that are empirically optimized to function as readily dispersed powdered additives with long-term water retention, durability during air craft bladder production, and rupture during ballistic shock. NanoSon ...

  6. Robust, Low Permeability, Water-Filled Microcapsules

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N19BT030

    The Navy is actively developing a self-sealing, water-activated fuel bladder to mitigate fuel leaks upon mechanical shock (e.g. penetration by a .50 caliber bullet). To circumvent the requirement of an external water source to activate the self-sealing, this system will require water-filled microcapsules that can be incorporated directly into the polymeric matrix of the fuel bladder. Upon mechanic ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Printable Radar Absorbent Materials/Structures for Soldier Uniforms & Other Army Textiles

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: A18BT023

    Portable Advanced Battlefield and Ground surveillance radar can now provide effective detection of small targets, posing challenges for troop movement and stealth missions. Radar absorbent strategies have been achieved in composites and larger textile objects, but effective light-weight solutions for current operational clothing and individual equipment systems such as uniforms, knapsacks and body ...

  9. SWAT- Scalable W(R)ubber through Advanced Technology

    SBC: EnergyEne Inc.            Topic: ST18C001

    Opportunity: Guayule, a US native plant, is the only alternate rubber crop with an established, mechanized, agronomic system. Problem: Low rubber yields and lack of effective resin and bagasse coproduct valorization, have prevented widespread adoption by American farmers and processors. Rubber is only made when the cytoplasmic monomer pool (isopentenyl-pyrophosphate; IPP) is larger than that requi ...

  10. POC Blood Coagulopathy Monitor

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP19A001

    Traumatic injuries account for 30% of all life years lost in the US and is the leading cause of death for people under 46 years of age. Uncontrolled bleeding or hemorrhage constitute 30-40% of trauma related deaths and are considered to be a major cause o
