  1. Hybrid Battery/Supercapacitor Energy Storage Device

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A15AT010

    ADA Technologies, Inc. (ADA) and Dr. Massoud Pedram at the University of Southern California (USC) have successfully completed a Phase I STTR effort for the development of a lithium ion (Li-ion)/ supercapacitor hybrid electrical energy storage system (HEESS) to afford pulse power characteristics (projected ~10 kW/kg) in a high energy system (100-150 Wh/kg). The system is enabled via a constant cur ...

  2. Cognitive Adaptation and Mission Optimization (CAMO) for Autonomous Teams of UAS Platforms

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: N17BT035

    The Navy needs cognitive control capabilities that enable an autonomous robotic team comprised of a ground control station node and a team of UAS platforms to operate independently (or with minimal human oversight) while carrying out complex missions. A cognitive control capability needs to be developed that concurrently optimizes the balance of mission risk / performance with respect to the Navy ...

  3. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    During altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive and physical capacity degrades, compromising individual and team performance. Cognitive degradation is linked to falling brain energy levels, increased reliance on anaerobic energy production and lactate accumulation. Ketones are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies demonstrated that ...

  4. Wavelength-Agile Real Time Tabletop X-ray Nanoscope based on High Harmonic Beams

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: ST15C001

    Nanoscale, material sensitive, imaging techniques are critical for progress in many disciplines as we learn to master science and technology at the smallest dimensions — on the nanometer to atomic-scale. However, progress in both science and technology is becoming increasingly limited by the constraints of current imaging techniques and metrologies. Fortunately, by combining coherent extreme UV ...

  5. Smart Baseplate for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DLA18A001

    Additive manufacturing (AM) has rapidly evolved into a valuable technique for making parts which, at times, cannot be fabricated through conventional machining methods, or for fabrication of small quantities of complex parts. One challenge in the area of AM is the lack of real-time feedback on the fabrication process and the quality of the part being made. This is especially critical given the rel ...

  6. Anti-Reflective Surface structures for Infrared Non-linear Materials

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF18AT016

    High-power, high-efficiency, broadly-tunable coherent sources in the mid-wave infrared (MWIR, λ=3–5 μm) spectral band are coveted for applications relating to infrared (IR) countermeasures, remote chemical sensing, and free-space optical communication. MWIR sources based on optical nonlinear frequency conversion can generate broadly-tunable kilowatt-level coherent radiation over the e ...

  7. Lightweight Structural Components of a Missile Body

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: MDA17T004

    A significant weight reduction on missile platforms could increase maneuverability of the payload and allow more capable payloads. High temperature composite materials offer the means by which low cost and lighter weight missile structures can be achieved. Approved for Public Release 19-MDA-10203 (4 Sep 19)

  8. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF17CT02

    The problem addressed in this effort is to automatically learn historical ephemeris space catalog time, position, and velocity entity track update error uncertainties (i.e., without track error covariances) and to automatically (e.g., without expert event labeling) produce: – unmodeled non-gravitational space catalog update flags – abnormal unmodeled catalog update flags with abnorma ...

  9. Volume Digital Holographic Wavefront Sensor Phase 2

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT006

    Through the execution of our Phase 1 effort, Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University developed an improved means to optimize the Pellizzarri cost functional for coherent imaging using digital holography. Our algorithm developed during the Phase 1 effort accelerates convergence times by a factor of 20-40 for the majority of scenarios evaluated. Our proposed Phase 2 effort has a two-fold focus: ...

  10. Full Mueller Matrix Characterization of Imaged Samples using Digital Holography

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT007

    The Phase II effort will be to clearly demonstrate the feasibility and build a prototype of a noncontact, high-quality holographic polarimetry system with pixel level depth and Mueller matrix information with a user-friendly interface to image and display this data. The measurements of each data product will be validated with trusted truth samples. The system will be reproducible and will have a d ...
