  1. Advanced Diagnostic for Performance and Combustion Characterization in Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE)

    SBC: Exo-Atmospheric Technologies LLC            Topic: AF19AT011

    Rotating Detonation Rocket Engines (RDRE)are being developed to take advantage of the near instantaneous heat release potential of detonation waves versus conventional deflagration-based chemicalreactions in combustion applications. However, the detonation product environment is extreme and current instrumentation to measure wall / surface conditions within the detonation chamber are lacking. Thep ...

  2. Detection and Recognition of Airborne Chemicals Onboard (DRACO) a Small Unmanned Aircraft System (SUAS)

    SBC: RPX Technologies, Inc            Topic: AF19AT016

    This proposal seeks funding to develop a small unmanned air system capable of operating indoors, in confined spaces while detecting and recognizing airborne chemical compounds.All the obstacle avoidance, flight control, chemical detection and chemical recognition are done onboard the small unmanned system, in real-time, providing rapid feedback to the operator. The Detection and Recognition of Air ...

  3. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: Weaver Labs, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    This project aims to develop material that can selectively bind fluorinated contaminants via surface modification of a proprietary material.Specifically, the project will focus on the removal of perfluoocatnoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) which have been widely used for numerous purposes given their unique physical properties.The molecules tend to be both water, oil, and d ...

  5. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: GHOST DISPLAY TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    By applying a thin film transistor (TFT) array to a flat panel display technology such as an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display, current high-quality (high-resolution) display products including TV, Tablet PC, and smartphone screens have been successfully realized. However, the rigid and fragile TFT backplanes limit OLED display applications for flexible and wearable display products. The ...

  6. Power-Dense Electrostatic Rotating Machines

    SBC: C-Motive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19AT007

    Next-generation naval ships will require electric machinery with at least 50% greater power density than is available today. Such machines must deliver up to 10s of MW at 100-200 rpm with very high energy efficiency, extremely low noise signature, and reasonable cost. Electrostatic machine technology is often overlooked but is perfectly suited to achieving these goals. C-Motive Technologies propos ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. AI-Driven, Secure Navy Mission Planning via Deep Reinforcement Learning and Attribute-Based Multi-Level Security

    SBC: EH GROUP            Topic: N19BT029

    Current mission planning systems allow strike planners and operations centers to perform time-sensitive strike planning, execution monitoring, and validate mission effects using XML-based tools that visualize time critical attack plan and track plan status vs. execution. In this proposed STTR Phase I design for the Next Generation Navy Mission Planning (NGNMPS) system, we will identify expanded op ...

  9. Temperature Sensing Submarine ISR Buoy / Surface Ship Sensor Tow Cable

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N18AT017

    The U.S. Navy currently utilizes a number of towed systems from surface ship and submarines for sensing and communication applications. In a number of these cases, a tow cable extends either down from a surface ship or up from a submarine through the upper part of the water column where seawater temperature can be both highly variable vs. depth and dynamic in time and geographic location. Having a ...

  10. Room Temperature Quantum Memory

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Quantum computer technology is so critical and strategic that the Air Force Research Laboratory is itself working on a quantum bit focused on the trapped ytterbium (Yb+) ion. The current technology based on entangling electrons, photons, or ions are challenging to put together in multiple qubits. To make a qubit stable, it is essential to protect it from outside interferences that can disrupt the ...
