  1. Novel Nanosat Payloads for Naval Weather Needs

    SBC: M.M.A. Design LLC            Topic: N16BT026

    Near surface ocean winds, generating the momentum flux affecting ocean circulation and mixing, have long been understood to be the key driving force in air-sea interaction processes. Global mapping of near surface ocean vector winds (OVW) is crucial for weather forecasting and many oceanographic and atmospheric studies. Amongst the more critical applications of OVW measurements are their use by th ...

  2. Novel Nanosat Payloads for Naval Weather Needs

    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. Ocean transits are not conducted without taking climatic, current, and forecast sea conditions into consideration. Continuous and reliable information on favorable and unfavorable sea state is critical for a broad range of nav ...

  3. Electro-Optic Transmissive Scanner

    SBC: I-CORE TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: N17AT001

    Electro-Optic transmissive scanner based on specific liquid crystal technology is proposed. Using a specific liquid crystal technology, light weight, thin thickness, low power consumption, beam steering is realized without using any mechanical moving parts. No mechanical parts provide strong durability to vibrational environment. For large steering performance, specific liquid crystal materials an ...

  4. Vorticity Based Reduced Order Ship Airwake Model for Aircraft Flight Simulation Integration

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N17AT005

    Continuum Dynamics, Inc. (CDI) with collaborators from Washington University and Princeton University will develop a reduced-order ship airwake modeling approach for engineering and piloted flight dynamics simulation applications. Simulation of naval aviation operations requires that the aerodynamic disturbance due to the ship be accurately modeled so that pilot control usage and aircraft response ...

  5. Low Cost OPAM for sea mine detection

    SBC: QUSPIN INC.            Topic: N17AT013

    Optically pumped magnetometers provide very high performance but they cost tens of thousands of dollars, and they are large and power hungry. Recently we successfully developed and commercialized laser pumped magnetometers with size, weight and power consumption that is an order of magnitude below current state-of-the-art without sacrificing performance. In this project, the focus will be on produ ...

  7. Advanced Wake Turbulence Modeling for Naval CFD Applications

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N15AT002

    Predicting the high Reynolds number viscous turbulent flow around realistic aircraft, rotorcraft and ship geometries with CFD is time consuming and computationally expensive, with the number of cells required to resolve the flow driving the computational cost. Even with modern CFD methods, the cost of adequately resolved solutions is prohibitive for most engineering tasks. The team of Continuum ...

  9. Multirotor Unmanned Air / Underwater Vehicle for Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Mine Countermeasures (MCM)

    SBC: SUBUAS LLC            Topic: N16AT025

    Team SubUAS, the STTR partnership between SubUAS LLC and Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, have developed the first drone to operate seamlessly between air, surface and water mediums. On this proposed effort, our multirotor unmanned aerial/underwater vehicle (MUA/UV) will be scaled to carry a payload of 10-30 pounds. Team SubUAS will build, test and develop simulated concept of operatio ...

  10. Electro-Optic Transmissive Scanner

    SBC: Fontus Applied Technologies Inc            Topic: N17AT001

    Optical beam steering has a wide range of applications in optical memory, optical communication, and free-space interconnections. A variety of techniques to implement optical beam steering have been reported by means of electromechanical, acousto-optic, and electro-optic effects. Optical phased-array beam steering implemented in lithium tantalate, lithium niobate crystals, and liquid crystal were ...
