  1. Additive Manufacturing Sensor Fusion Technologies for Process Monitoring and Control.

    SBC: ARCTOS Technology Solutions, LLC            Topic: DLA18A001

    This Phase II project aims to assemble the key set of sensor modalities that are needed to reliably view the key process anomalies and properties of laser powder bed fusion. The research team will down-select from the Phase I sensors investigated and integrate the sensors into a sensor fusion software package that facilitates data collection and synchronization, and eventually feedback control of ...

  2. Optimized High Performance Stainless Steel Powder for Selective Laser Melting Additive Manufacturing (AM)

    SBC: Shepra, Inc.            Topic: N16AT007

    Stainless steel is a vital component of many air, land and sea systems that support the Navy warfighter. In particular, 17-4 precipitation hardened stainless steel, (17-4 PH SS) with its extrodinary combination of strength, ductility, high temperature performance and corrosion resistance plays an important role in supporting the warfighter. When processed conventionally, 17-4 PH SS typical exhibit ...

  3. High Throughput Testing of Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N18AT028

    Additive manufacturing is a disruptive new manufacturing paradigm that hold tremendous potential for creation of novel designs and introduction of novel new alloy systems. However, much of this potential remains unrealized due to a lack of robust material properties databases. Accurate calibration of materials models and robust part qualification and certification regimes both will require massive ...

  4. Information-based Norms on Flow, Operations and Traffic Over Networks (INFOTON)

    SBC: ISEA TEK, LLC            Topic: N18AT027

    The Internet of Things (IoT) connects people, data, and "things" (e.g., software, sensors, platforms), facilitating the translation of information into actions. Although naval platforms’ networks and communication suites have evolved significantly in the past few years to support such required connectivity, one of the greatest technical challenges still facing the military community is the proce ...

  5. Quantifying Uncertainty in the Mechanical Performance of Additively Manufactured Parts Due to Material and Process Variation

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N16AT004

    Additive manufacturing is an extremely customizable process; however, variations in the chosen build parameters can lead to drastic differences in part performance. The performance variation due to process parameters is still not well understood, and propagating all uncertainties from the various sources has been a challenge. Sources of AM parts’ performance variability include uncertainties in ...

  6. Physics-based Computationally Efficient Spray Combustion Models for LES of Multiphase Reacting Flows

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N17AT002

    One important challenge for the reliable prediction of liquid fuel effects on the combustion in aviation combustors and augmentors is the accurate modeling of underlying physical processes, involving the evaporation of fuels, preferential vaporization, scalar mixing and ignition. LES methodologies are required to accurately capture these transient and inherently unsteady combustion processes. In t ...

  7. Ocean Surface Vector Winds (OSVW)

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: N16BT026

    Ocean surface winds are critically important in naval operations. They may aid, hinder, or negate maneuvers and operations, and are a primary consideration in routing ships. Continuous and reliable information on favorable and unfavorable sea state is critical for a broad range of naval missions, including strategic ship movement and positioning, aircraft carrier operations, aircraft deployment, e ...

  8. Ignition Modeling for Present and Future Combustors and Augmentors

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N17AT003

    The ability to predict the ignitibility potential of a combustor at various operating conditions is not practical at this time due to the complexity of this process. Ignition within a gas turbine combustor is dependent on various parameters; including spark (or plasma) energy, flow conditions, fuel/air ratio, and fuel spray density. All these parameters must be properly predicted in order to effec ...

  9. Multi-vehicle Collaboration with Minimal Communications and Minimal Energy

    SBC: Orbit Logic Incorporated            Topic: N17AT029

    Orbit Logic,the University of Colorado, and the University of California are developing a hierarchical autonomous mission planning and response capability for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) to address the challenges associated with long duration operations. The research is innovating approaches to the exchange of information between collaborating vehicles enabling onboard decision-making to ...

  10. Phase-Change Materials for Tunable Infrared Devices

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: N17AT020

    There is a critical need for the development of dynamic IR materials that can be used to form device level components and systems necessary for mid to long wave infrared (3-12 µm) applications. To meet these future needs, the team proposes to develop tunable optical elements based around metamaterial surfaces or metasurfaces. Metasurfaces are a class of engineered materials where arrays of sub-wa ...
