  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Ocean Surface Vector Winds (OSVW)

    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. Continuous and reliable information on favorable and unfavorable sea state is critical for a broad range of naval missions, including strategic ship movement and positioning, aircraft carrier operations, aircraft deployment, e ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste Heat

    SBC: Mantel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19AT013

    The U.S. Navy seeks methods to improve the fuel economy of marine diesel engines through utilization of waste heat. Low temperature engine jacket water, lubrication oil, and aftercooler air are largely untapped streams of thermal energy on these ships, but their utilization circumvents many operation challenges associated with exhaust gases. For example, variable and high exhaust gas temperatures ...

  6. High Speed Spinning Scroll Expander (HiSSSE)- Organic Rankine Cycle for Increased Naval Ship Power Density and Fuel Efficiency

    SBC: Air Squared, Inc.            Topic: N19AT013

    Waste heat from Naval diesel generators provides significant opportunity to introduce organic Rankine cycles (ORC) to increase their fuel efficiency. The objective of the proposed effort is to design and demonstrate a high-speed, spinning scroll expander (HiSSSE) ORC as a power dense waste heat recovery system for diesel generators on ships. The system will leverage Air Squared’s spinning scroll ...

  7. Transformation Accelerated through Redesign, Guidance, and Enhanced Training (TARGET)

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: N17AT017

    As submarine threats from adversary countries continue to rise, the U.S. Navy must maintain and expand its anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capabilities. Warfighter readiness is the linchpin of the Navy’s ASW strategy, but the complexity of the ASW domain necessitates time-consuming training, and practical experiences to transfer those skills to the operational environment. Innovative training appro ...

  8. Low Cost Magnetic Sensor for Mine Neutralizer Identification and Charge Placement

    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 ...

  9. Innovative Packaging to Achieve Extremely Light Weight Sensor Pod Systems

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N17AT007

    Mentis Sciences, Inc. and the University of New Hampshire will continue the design work started in Phase I of the program to develop an ultra-lightweight modular electronics enclosure. During the Phase I effort, a concept for the enclosure was developed, and preliminary structural and thermal analysis was conducted to demonstrate the feasibility of the concept. At the conclusion of Phase I, the pr ...

  10. New Integrated Total Design of Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) Propulsion System Architecture for Higher Efficiency and Low Noise

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N18AT012

    In this proposal, a meta model-based scaling law will be used to represent each system component. A components meta model-based scaling law describes the tradeoffs between performance metrics for that component or subsystem as a function of its ratings in relation to the system. This greatly reduces the number of degrees of freedom for each component, and at the same time, retains the information ...
