  1. Robust, Low Permeability, Water-Filled Microcapsules

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N19BT030

    The Navy is actively developing a self-sealing, water-activated fuel bladder to mitigate fuel leaks upon mechanical shock (e.g. penetration by a .50 caliber bullet). To circumvent the requirement of an external water source to activate the self-sealing, this system will require water-filled microcapsules that can be incorporated directly into the polymeric matrix of the fuel bladder. Upon mechanic ...

  2. HIGH STRENGTH, WATER-FILLED CERAMIC NANOCOMPOSITE MICROCAPSULES WITH LOW PERMEABILITY FOR SELF-SEALING FUEL BLADDERS

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N19BT030

    During the proposed Navy STTR program, NanoSonic and Virginia Tech will design and synthesize innovative, high strength ceramic nanocomposite microcapsules filled with > 80 volume percent water that are empirically optimized to function as readily dispersed powdered additives with long-term water retention, durability during air craft bladder production, and rupture during ballistic shock. NanoSon ...

  3. Atomic Triaxial Magnetometer

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N19AT006

    Vescent Photonics and MIT Lincoln Labs (MIT-LL) propose to develop a quantum-based vector magnetometer with low size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP+C) for Navy applications. The proposed system will rely on probing magnetically-sensitive, atomic-like transitions of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond to provide stable, high-bandwidth readout of the vector magnetic field with sub-picotesla sen ...

  4. Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: XL Scientific, LLC            Topic: N19AT001

    Verus Research and the University of New Mexico (UNM) are pleased to respond to the Navy Phase I STTR solicitation N19A-T001 titled “Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources.” Verus Research, in collaboration with UNM, propose to develop a GW-class, S-band, high power microwave (HPM) source to integrate in vehicle and vessel stopping systems. Our integrated approach ensures the objectives for ...

  5. Atomic Triaxial Magnetometer

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N19AT006

    Improved magnetic anomaly detection can counter threats from quieter submarines and mines. This Phase I STTR project will address this goal using improved atomic magnetometry methods based on pumping alignment coherence in rubidium vapor. A means of changing the polarization of the pump light will ensure that atomic coherence can be pumped in any orientation of the magnetic field. Multiple probe b ...

  6. Power-Dense Electrical Rotating Machines for Propulsion and Power Generation

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N19AT007

    The primary objective is to develop electric machine/drive topologies and power architectures that achieve the power densities required for 50% more power without the increase in weight or space requirements. In addition to PMSM-based designs, two new machine topologies will be considered. The first is a trapped flux coreless (TFC) machine that utilizes superconducting pucks made of YBCO to produc ...

  7. Quench Monitoring and Control System for High-Temperature Superconducting Coils

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: N19AT016

    The Navy has been developing superconducting systems, based on high-temperature superconductors (HTS), for future use on Navy ships. One of the challenges associated with superconducting magnets is the possibility of a quench, which is an event where a local hot spot develops within the superconductor that quickly spreads throughout the device, driving it into its normal and dissipative state. Sen ...

  8. Novel Development of an Intelligent Quench Detection (QD) Method for HTS Coils

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: N19AT016

    Energy to Power Solutions (e2P) has teamed with quench detection (QD) expert Dr. Yuri Lvovsky (retired GE), Dr. Sastry Pamidi of the Center for Advanced Power Systems (FSU-CAPS), and American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) to design, fabricate, and test a robust, reliable, and low cost QD system. e2P’s proposed system is a vastly different quench avoidance system that will provide multiple le ...

  9. Unified Logging Architecture for Performance and Cybersecurity Monitoring

    SBC: Innovative Defense Technologies, LLC            Topic: N19AT012

    In order to achieve real-time monitoring, analysis, and alerting for complex systems, a unified logging architecture must exist that can support the collection and analysis of big data. Our technical objective is to develop a unified logging architecture that supports collection, aggregation, storage, and analysis of system performance and cybersecurity logs, events, and alerts produced by Naval C ...

  10. Process to Mitigate Catastrophic Optical Damage to Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: Irglare, LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    The development of a catastrophic optical damage model for quantum cascade lasers describing instantaneous laser damage at high optical power levels is proposed. The model will be validated by comparison to experimental data. Based on obtained results, changes to laser design and laser fabrication resulting in an increased damage threshold will be implemented. The work will ultimately result into ...
