  1. Demonstration of a JP-8 Powered Compact ECU

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: OSD09T002

    Military shelters currently use electrically driven Environmental Control Units (ECUs) to provide cooling for the air inside the shelter. The ECU is vapor compression cycle powered by a diesel generator, operating on JP-8 fuel. Other than fueling jet engines, the largest drain on U.S. military fuel supplies in current operations comes from running generators at forward operating bases. In hot cli ...

  2. Low-Cost Ball/Air/Magnetic Hybrid Bearing System for Extended-Life Micro Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Nastec, Inc.            Topic: N10AT037

    A unique type of air lubricated thrust bearing called a Wave Bearing is proposed to assist a rolling element bearing to carry the thrust load and to improve the bearing’s life when used in a micro gas turbine engine. The Wave Bearing technology will provide improved reliability, safety and life compared to rolling element bearings used alone, as well as to allow simplification of engine design a ...

  3. An adaptive and scalable SOA-based network resource virtualization framework for MANET

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: N10AT006

    The key innovation of this proposal is to develop an adaptive and scalable network resource virtualization framework. The framework employs simple yet efficient mechanisms to deliver a comprehensive network resource virtualization solution through network virtualization, service discovery/advertisement, and service differentiation in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). It uses local caching to facili ...

  4. Analysis and Modeling of Foreign Object Damage (FOD) in Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)

    SBC: N&R ENGNERING MGT SUPPORT SVCS            Topic: N10AT010

    The Phase I deliverable will be a physic-based model which represents a CMC gas turbine component concomitantly at the material level and the structural level. This model will be probabilistically analyzed to account for the uncertainties in material properties and the uncertainties in the size and impact velocities of possible foreign objects (FOD). A ceramic material must display sufficient capa ...

  6. Advanced Materials for the Design of Lightweight JP5/JP8/DS2 Fueled Engines for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: Northwest Uld, Inc.            Topic: N10AT001

    Northwest UAV Propulsion Systems proposes using our purpose built heavy fuel engine designed and built in the USA for small unmanned aerial systems in the tier 2 & 3 class. We will be adding a lightweight ceramic material set combined with FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and heavy fuel atomizer (IRAD Project) to create a lightweight engine for a SUAS or STUAS class UAVs. The Ceramic material set is ...

  7. Graded-Composition Refractory Coatings for Protection of Cu-Rails for Electromagnetic Launchers

    SBC: Engineered Coatings, Inc.            Topic: N10AT025

    The Navy is developing an electromagnetic (EM) launcher for long-range naval surface-fire-support. Severe operating conditions of the EM system place stringent requirements for materials, including high current and magnetic fields, high temperatures, contact with liquid metals, high stress/gouging from balloting contacts and high-speed-sliding electrical-contact with an Al armature. Engineered Coa ...

  8. Real-time In-situ Adaptation of Decision Parameters for Undersea Target Tracking in a Sensor Field

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: N10AT038

    Network-centric command and control of complex military missions (e.g., anti-submarine warfare, collaborative mine hunting, etc.) calls for cost-effective designs that can dynamically tradeoff multiple conflicting objectives. Often these optimizations have to be carried out at a higher level, and the associated control directives have to be disseminated down to a distributed system, thereby, influ ...

  9. The Deceptive Language Processing Framework: Fusing Top-Down and Bottom-Up Approaches to Deception Discovery

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: N10AT029

    The exponential growth of text-based communication associated with the Internet has lead to a vast increase in the amount of unstructured messages that open source intelligence needs to process. This increase has lead to the need to develop methods for facilitating the detection of deception in various forms of text-based messages, from chat rooms, emails, weblogs, to text messaging. Methods are r ...

  10. Wideband Metamaterial Antennas Integrated into Composite Structures

    SBC: JEM ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: N10AT021

    A broadband antenna, having more than a 100:1 bandwidth,is integrated with a high impedance surface that is compatible with the manufacturing processes associated with with Navy topside panel constructions and marine vehicle armor. The high impedance surface (also known as an artificial magnetic conductor, or AMC) can be tuned to discrete frequency bands using voltage-variable capacitors and the o ...
