  1. Micro-STT Ground-to-Air Radar

    SBC: Agile RF Systems LLC            Topic: AF191051

    Agile RF Systems in partnership with the University of Oklahoma (OU) propose to develop and test an impulse radar (IR) based on a new, low cost, commercially available chipset. This chipset was originally developed and is used in medical radar devices. The radar incorporates an Ultra-Wideband (UWB) array antenna with correlation-sampling electronic scanning in the time-domain, to achieve a scalabl ...

  2. Sea-Skimming Missile Tracking

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF191052

    The Air Force requires a system to provide over the horizon tracking to support development and test of Sea Skimming Missiles (SSM). Under this SBIR Phase I effort, Defense Research Associates, Inc.(DRA) will document system requirements, identify and assess sensor technologies capable of performing the missile tracking task, develop a system design to meet the requirements using the most promisin ...

  3. Rapid Repair of Corroded Fastener Holes (19-RD-189)

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: N192085

    In the naval aircraft many disparate materials are subject to galvanic corrosion, due to the marine environment. Some of these aircraft have hybrid (carbon fiber composite/aluminum) designs that exhibit accelerated corrosion damage, compared to legacy all-metal frames, due to galvanic interaction between the fastener, the composite skin, and the aluminum frame. In the Phase I SBIR program, UES Inc ...

  4. Crystallographic orientation mapping of minimally prepeared large nonplanar surfaces

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N192072

    The importance of determining crystallographic orientation information over large areas has existed within the materials science community for solutions to a variety of applications in aerospace and otherwise since the connection of MTRs and material performance was discovered, but it isn’t until recently that a feasible solution has existed. In this work, MRL will demonstrate the feasibility of ...

  5. Ceramic Durable Solid Lubricant Coating for Firearms

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N192057

    Medium caliber aircraft guns like the M197 rotary cannon experience multiple points of friction, needing preventative maintenance cycles to address wear and corrosion. Wet firearm lubricants like CLP and TW25B must be regularly removed and re-applied because they collect sand, dust, and carbon, increasing wear on the part. In contrast, durable solid lubricants (DSLs) can be applied as one-time, pe ...

  6. Nano-Hardened Electroplated Coatings for Improved Rotary Cannon Lifespan


    Rotary cannon type weapons, such as the M197 electric cannon, currently require servicing every 28 days in order to remove abrasive particulate and to relubricate the rotary drum. The Navy is currently seeking a one-time application coating, applied at the time of manufacturing or retrofit, which will at least double the time between servicing to 56 days or more. Mainstream Engineering proposes to ...

  7. Collaborative Recommender System for Spatio-Temporal Intelligence Documents

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: NGA191005

    US military and intelligence agencies have invested significant resources in data collection and effective search and analytics tools. However, due to increasing amounts of data, finding relevant information has become more difficult. Thus, there is an important need for recommender system technology that pushes relevant un-queried data to analysts through automation and machine learning technique ...

  8. Flexible High-Dynamic-Range Lidar Digitizer

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N192063

    To meet the U.S. Navy need for high-dynamic-range digitizers for lidar applications, a four-input channel 17-bit dynamic-range application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) will be developed. Each of the four high-bandwidth input channels will be configured in a fast-in/slow-out architecture, composed of a stacked 512-element switched capacitor array (SCA), capable of 2-ns time-slice sampling, an ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
