  1. Demonstration of a JP-8 Powered Compact ECU

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: OSD09T002

    Military shelters currently use electrically driven Environmental Control Units (ECUs) to provide cooling for the air inside the shelter. The ECU is vapor compression cycle powered by a diesel generator, operating on JP-8 fuel. Other than fueling jet engines, the largest drain on U.S. military fuel supplies in current operations comes from running generators at forward operating bases. In hot cli ...

  2. MANERVA: Mission Assessment of Non-Manned Entities for Rating the Validation of Autonomy

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD09T004

    The dependability, persistence, and versatility of unmanned systems have made them indispensable assets in today’s warfighting. As they are tasked to fulfill new missions in unpredictable, dynamic environments, they are transitioning from remote control into the realm of autonomy. Here they perform rapid and semi-autonomous behaviors, such as re-planning and re-tasking, to accomplish mission obj ...

  3. Validation and Evaluation of Remote, Interactive Teams of Autonomous Systems (VERITAS)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: OSD09T004

    different modes, while using different combinations of subsystems. This presents a challenge for the personnel validating the system during design and development; the number of combinations of environments, modes, and subsystems is exponential. They cannot all be tested, so an optimal subset of tests must be run. We propose to develop VERITAS: Validation and Evaluation of Remote, Interactive Tea ...

  4. Photo Triggered Carbon Nanotube Field Emission Cathode for Free Electron Lasers

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N10AT023

    Busek Co. Inc (Busek) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) propose to develop the design of a photon actuated, ultrafast carbon nanotube (CNT) field emission cathodes for high-power electron beam accelerator sources. The cathode will be based on massive arrays of Vertically Aligned Carbon Nano-Fibers (VA-CNFs) that are individually controlled by a vertical ungated field effect transisto ...

  5. Enhanced Riverine Drifter

    SBC: C-2 INNOVATIONS INC.            Topic: N10AT024

    The proposed Autonmous Reactive Ferrrying Drifter (ARF-D) provides wide measured swath, autonomously maintains a buffer distance from close-shore snags, and by utilizing river flow provides a very low power approach to obtaining cross-river surveying, providing greater coverage with minimal power penalty. By randomizing the cross-river transit paths multiple ARF-D units will naturally overcome the ...

  6. FreeSwim: Autonomous Behaviors for Undersea Sensors

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT038

    Future naval operations are expected to make extensive use of unmanned vehicles to support a range of operations, including intelligence gathering, mine warfare, force protection, and anti-submarine warfare. Current unmanned systems are typically controlled remotely by an operator who directly manipulates a control interface for the vehicle. The effectiveness of this approach is obviously limited ...

  7. Automated Linguistic Analysis Revealing Misrepresentation and Messaging (ALARMM)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT029

    The proposed Automated Linguistic Analysis Revealing Misrepresentation and Messaging (ALARMM) system significantly advances the state of the art in detecting deception in unstructured data such as Web sites and chat messages. Our research focuses on automated techniques based on linguistic theory that can detect both misrepresentations and hidden messages. The proposed work draws on the field of s ...

  8. Graded-Composition Refractory Coatings for Protection of Cu-Rails for Electromagnetic Launchers

    SBC: Engineered Coatings, Inc.            Topic: N10AT025

    The Navy is developing an electromagnetic (EM) launcher for long-range naval surface-fire-support. Severe operating conditions of the EM system place stringent requirements for materials, including high current and magnetic fields, high temperatures, contact with liquid metals, high stress/gouging from balloting contacts and high-speed-sliding electrical-contact with an Al armature. Engineered Coa ...

  9. Development of Refractory Coatings on High Strength, High Conductivity Substrates

    SBC: H&R TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N10AT025

    The objective of this Project is to explore and develop refractory coatings on high strength, high electrical conductivity copper alloy, to enable damage resistant electromagnetic launcher. An electromagnetic launcher consists of two parallel copper rails, and a moving armature. High electrical currents passing through the rails and armature result in strong magnetic fields, high temperatures, che ...

  10. Low Cost High-rate Manufacturing of Flexible Explosive Detection Sensor

    SBC: Nanotrons            Topic: N10AT031

    Nanotrons Corporation, in collaboration with Professor Byungki Kim at NSF Nanomanufacturing Research Center at the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML), proposes to develop the low-cost high-rate manufacturing technique for flexible explosive detection sensors to significantly increase sensitivity of detection of trinitrotoluene (TNT) explosives. The new approach combines cutting-edge nanomate ...
