  1. Framework for Modeling Turbulent Flow with Conjugated Heat Transfer

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19BT027

    With gas turbines becoming smaller and more powerful the need to accurately predict the temperature distribution of the turbine blades become crucial. The high Reynolds number (Re), poorly behave flow encountered in gas turbines makes Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) inaccurate and Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) too expensive to be used as analysis tools. Large Eddy Simulation (LES) appr ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. GECCO: Gecko-gripper for EOD with Cavitation Cleaning Operation

    SBC: ZERO-G HORIZONS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N19AT011

    The objective of the Phase I proposal is to investigate the application of controlled cavitation cleaning technology in conjunction with gecko-inspired mechanical adhesion and soft elastomeric applicators for use in non-intrusive EOD operations. This investigation requires the proof-of-concept testing and validation of a controlled cavitation cleaning mechanism, and a soft robotic gecko-inspired m ...

  6. Optically-Aided, Non-Global Positioning System (GPS) for Aircraft Navigation Over Water

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N191003

    Polaris proposes a hybrid system, combining a Sky Polarization Azimuth Sensing System (SkyPASS) Gen3 heading sensor and a Celestial Positioning System (CPS) into a SkyPASS Gen3 Positioning System (SkyPASS-GPS). The SkyPASS-GPS system will utilize multiple celestial technologies (including Sun tracking, star tracking, and sky polarization mapping) combined with novel algorithms to provide heading a ...

  7. Novel Development of an Intelligent Quench Detection (QD) Method for HTS Coils

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: N19AT016

    Energy to Power Solutions (e2P) has teamed with quench detection (QD) expert Dr. Yuri Lvovsky (retired GE), Dr. Sastry Pamidi of the Center for Advanced Power Systems (FSU-CAPS), and American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) to design, fabricate, and test a robust, reliable, and low cost QD system. e2Ps proposed system is a vastly different quench avoidance system that will provide multiple level ...

  8. Rayleigh Interrogated Optical Fiber (RIOF) Quench Monitoring and Control System for DC and AC Operated High Temperature Superconducting Magnets

    SBC: Lupine Materials and Technology, Inc.            Topic: N19AT016

    High temperature superconducting (HTS) systems, and in particular superconducting magnets (SCMs), developed and deployed by the Department of Defense are necessary to maintain and advance the U.S. naval defense program. Tremendous advantages in utilizing HTS SCM technology have been impeded, however, by the inability to reliably monitor and protect the magnets against the occurrence of a quench. A ...

  9. Optically-Aided, Non-Global Positioning System (GPS) for Aircraft Navigation Over Water

    SBC: Qunav LLC            Topic: N191003

    To extend vision-aided capabilities to navigation of manned and unmanned aerial platforms over water, QuNav proposes to develop a technological approach of navigation and feature-state tracking (NavTrack). To reduce drift in inertial navigation outputs, NavTrack derives relative position updates by utilizing navigation-related features that are extracted from video images. To accommodate water mov ...

  10. Through-the-Hull Data Transfer

    SBC: Extreme Sonar LLC            Topic: N191038

    Submarine outboard sensors must send data and receive power through a pressure hull consisting of two-inch thick HY-80, HY-100 or HY-130 high yield strength steel plate using hull penetrators that for safety reasons can only be installed during new construction or major refurbishments. As a result, hull penetrators are scarce resources and are difficult to acquire for temporary sensor installation ...
