  1. Quantum Optical Semiconductor Chips and its Application to Quantum Communication

    SBC: Maxxen Group, LLC            Topic: N20AT005

    Current Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) technology is capable of quantum computing, however, its application is limited due to its large size, low-temperature refrigeration requirement, and high cost.  Quantum optical semiconductor-scale chip technology is promising but not commercially available yet due to the multiple challenges to overcome. Using quantum photonic technology ...

  4. Measurement of Wall-Shear-Stress Distribution in Hypersonic Flows

    SBC: Engineering And Scientific Innovations Inc.            Topic: N20AT022

    Accurate prediction of the state of boundary layers and regions of separated flows is of fundamental importance in the design of hypersonic vehicles. The ability to predict boundary layer characteristics and how these affect surface shear stress and its influence on the surface skin friction is directly related to flight performance.  This STTR is concerned with developing a system for measuring ...

  5. Intelligent Additive Manufacturing- Metals

    SBC: R3 DIGITAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: N20AT018

    The Navy desires an Intelligent Additive Manufacturing (IAM) system for metal Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) that can incorporate AI to provide real-time adaptive monitoring and control of the LPBF process and produce defect-free parts while maintaining or reducing part build times. To provide this, our team will develop Open-IAM.  The concept will consist of a controllable open architecture LPBF ...

  6. Dual Stage Integrated Cyclone (DSIC) Geometry for Sea Chest Water Management System


    Current Zumwalt Class destroyers (DDG 1000) sea chest openings are unique because they must be flush to the hull, limiting implementation of common sea chest designs (e.g., bubble shields or raised inlets). This design results in the ingestion of higher amounts of ice, debris, and air, resulting in increased maintenance costs, potential pump failure, and degraded overall cooling performance. The N ...

  7. Spatiotemporal evolution of hydrometeors and flow interactions during aerobreakup

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: N20AT020

    Hydrometeors consisting of liquid water droplets or solid particles of ice can disrupt the boundary layer near hypersonic vehicles, and ultimately impinge on the surface causing surface roughness and further altering the flowfield. To advance the knowledge of hydrometeors and their impact on hypersonic flight, it is critical, therefore, to develop practical, high-fidelity and spatio-temporally res ...

  8. Smart ICME for Enhanced Fatigue Life in Metal Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N20AT002

    Fatigue life of parts produced by metal additive manufacturing is determined by the complex interaction of defects, surface properties, and material microstructure.  Each of these constituents is affected by the choice of processing parameters, as well as the feedstock, machine performance, etc.  In addition, stochastic events often contribute significantly to the fatigue life of individual samp ...

  9. Timing and Harmonic AI-based Waveform Error Detection (THAWED)

    SBC: Expedition Technology, Inc.            Topic: N20AT025

    The physics generating timing spurs in a high-speed, low-bit depth analog-to-digital converter will be modeled in a machine learning framework to enable both the prediction of spurs and adaptive removal using an enhancement neural network. The algorithms will be developed in software and optimized for low-latency operation in a digital (FPGA or similar) framework. High-speed implementation of ...

  10. Investigation of Radiation Effects in Advanced Microelectronic Devices for developing predictive models of degradation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 20A001

    Radiation effects in microelectronic components are a significant concern for the reliability of DoD systems that operate at high altitudes or in outer space. Typical characterization efforts focus on macroscale degradation signatures from electrical measurements at device terminals. However, a comprehensive analysis of radiation-induced physical defects is not possible based solely on terminal me ...
